Oriel Café Bar
The Oriel Café Bar or the OCB can be found in the shopping centre at 365a Kensington Road, Kensington Gardens. This is a big café with friendly table service and an extensive menu.
The beverage list boasted an OCB hot chocolate made from melted chocolate with marshmallows, so this was the one Merkel had to have at $4.50. The other hot chocolates were a cup for $3.60 and a mug for $4.30. The drink was served in a tall glass with plenty of froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder on top. The two marshmallows were big and fresh and worthy of comment. The drink was nice dark chocolate flavour, better than most standard hot chocolates but not up to the standard of some of the Belgian hot chocolates around town.
