Lenzerheide is a long-established restaurant at 146 Belair Road, Hawthorn. It provides fine dining with excellent table service. Merkel and Myrtle were dining with friends in the splendid surroundings. While Merkel cannot afford to eat here too often the food was delicious and looked great.
The hot chocolate was presented in a modern double sided cup which preserves the heat on the inside without burning the fingertips on the outside. Merkel first encountered one of these at Mapo which has since disappeared from James Place. The drink was topped with a white froth and a sprinkle of chocalate powder. The chocolate was an average café drink and was not particularly rich. This was a disappointment where everything else at the Lenzerheide was a pretty special. The cost was $4.50.
