Monsieur Truffe

Head through the red door for a world of pure chocolate.

Just like a cooler, more urban chocolate mythical figure, Monsieur Truffe is Melbourne's Willie Wonka. And to get inside his wondrous factory, you dont need a Golden Ticket — you just have to find the red door. It's unmarked, of course, and from the outside, gives no indication of the sweetness behind it. Inside, two of the best worlds collide: it's one part chocolate factory, one part café. On the right, you have Monsieur Truffe's single origin chocolate bars, blended blocks and confections being made with cocoa beans from everywhere from Vietnam to Venezuela. And on the left is the café space, East Elevation. It's clear their proximity to the chocolate making influences their menu; the granola comes with nuggets of dark chocolate, the hot chocolates are exquisite, and if you're there on the right day, you might be able to grab a decadent brownie or fondue, made with the good stuff. Even still, a visit to the chocolate shop is more than necessary before you leave.
