Mork Chocolate City
A tiny haven of artisan chocolate drinks and dreamy baked goods, located in a former lift shaft.
In the lead-up to its tenth birthday, artisan cacao brand Mörk opened the doors to a second outpost for its much-loved range of fine drinking chocolates and other handmade sweet treats; this time taking over an old lift shaft in a CBD laneway. The new pint-sized digs in Equitable Place are slinging Mörk's signature hot — and chilled — chocolate drinks, along with a range of take-home products and sweet treats, all for takeaway. This tiny haven is also where you'll find the cult-favourite Swedish cinnamon buns from sister label, Söt by Mörk.
The store's range of luxe drinking chocolate trips through varying degrees of cacao darkness, all ready to enjoy with your choice of regular, oat or coconut milk (from $6). Or, if you prefer coffee, the caffeinated lineup comes courtesy of a collaboration with Patricia Coffee Brewers ($4.5). That famed Campfire Hot Chocolate also gets a spin here, with its theatrical show of smoke, chocolate and toasted marshmallow ($9). The hole-in-the-wall is turning out a range of plant-based beverages, too, including a hazelnut and almond blend ($8), and a Bounty-inspired fusion of caramelised coconut and sea salt ($8).
And should your sweet tooth need a little extra lovin', there's a cabinet full of goodies from the Söt line — gooey twice-baked chocolate cake, florentines finished with Rooftop Honey, and miniature pistachio bundts loaded with yuzu chocolate ganache, to name a few.
