Hot Chocolate in Adelaide for $3

From your reviewer's research it would seem that $3.00 is inexpensive for a good hot chocolate. In this article Merkel Marmaduke reviews three hot chocolates that meet this benchmark.

Gelato Bello, Malvern Village, 259 Unley Road, Malvern.
If he had insisted, Merkel could probably have got a ceramic cup but he took pity on the young serving assistant and settled for the paper cup. Larger cup sizes were available. The drink came with good froth and chocolate sprinkle but it was a fairly weak and watery chocolate.

This venue seems to have closed and is now on the list of disappearing hot chocolate venues.

Café One, Southern Cross Arcade, Adelaide
Larger sizes were available. It came in a ceramic cup but had a thin froth with a good chocolate sprinkle. It was too hot and too watery.

Café 146, 146 Gawler Place, Adelaide
This is good lunch place with plenty of seating. The hot chocolate tasted the best of the three reviewed here. It was served in a ceramic cup with a mountain of froth and a sprinkle of cocoa.

Merkel Marmaduke's conclusion is that one can get a good hot chocolate in Adelaide for only $3.00. Don't expect all the trimmings and choose your venues wisely. Café 146 was the winner on taste but an honourable mention should go to the $2.95 hot chocolate from Cocolat, Hyde Park for a good value dining experience.
