Mörk Chocolate has been making its way across Melbourne's boutique cafe's and shops over the past few years, but the brewhouse in North Melbourne is still consistently packed with visitors. I've come here numerous times in the past but aborted the mission because of the crazy queue. The shop is tiny and seats about 12 to 16 people which explains the wait. So what makes Mörk hot chocolate so special, compared to say.. Max Brenner? Well firstly, Mörk is a Melbourne based cacao roaster, meaning their chocolate blends use the same approach taken by specialty coffee-makers. What you taste is the full rounded goodness of the cacao bean rather than a mouth full of sugar. The brewhouse offers an adventurous menu including this Cereal & Milk. It comes in a super cute cereal box and is a mix of popping chocolate clusters, dehydrated cinnamon meringues, buckwheat cocoa flakes, caramelised hazelnuts and sour cherries. The cereal is served with a little bottle of cold chocolate milk. Probably not a breakfast I'd ever serve to my kids but it was surprisingly not as sweet as it looked. Another popular item that lots of people come in for is the Campfire. It is 70% dark hot chocolate served with beechwood smoke, charcoal salt and toasted housemade marshmallows. The smoke comes in an upside down glass that you pour the hot chocolate into, drop in the large fluffy marshmallow and then sprinkle salt on top; fanciest hot chocolate I've ever had. If you have time to spare, it's worth a visit, though I'd say buying their chocolate to enjoy at home is probably a better idea than lining up for a table. They also sell the cereal boxes for $15 for those who want to have a chocolately day everyday! | Price: approx $10pp | | Pram friendly: no | | Parking: street parking |
