No longer Mandurah's best kept secret
Everyone knows about the Margaret River Chocolate Factory, but few people seem to know that Mandurah has its very own chocolate company, Decadent Cs, located about five minutes out of our southern city.

This family run business is now four years old and located directly across the road from the now closed Abington Village. Decadent Cs is open daily (except Wednesdays) for lunch, morning and afternoon tea and (with two weeks' notice) high tea.

There are captivating sweets to find at Decadent Cs


Decadent Cs sources its chocolate from Belgium, which is then processed onsite and turned into a range of gourmet creations from truffles to chocolate covered pretzels and marshmallows.

The soaring space is part chocolate shop and part café, with carousel horses hanging from the roof, and a viewing window at the front of the shop which looks into the factory room where the chocolates are made.

Open from 9am to 4.30pm, Decadent Cs is perfect for morning or afternoon tea, or lunch and it has a range of options from gourmet sausage rolls, tarts, pot pies, arancini balls, quiche and salads, which range from $12 to $15.

The cake cabinet is likely to cause sweet tooths real pain – from deciding which cake to choose that is. The icing is generously high and some cakes are decorated with house-made specialties such as the rocky road white mud cake.

The kids value pack includes sweet and savoury (and a drink)


Kids have a small menu, but one that hits the spot – vegemite sandwich ($4.80), fairy bread ($4.80) or the 'Children's Value Pack' a heart shaped plate that comes with a mini pie, a mini quiche, a glorious cupcake, the choice of a poptop or mini milkshake, plus a chocolate covered marshmallow and a coconut rough. Priced at $14.50 the kids meal could almost be shared between two, as it is generous indeed.

Kids probably won't have time to eat anyway as they have the entire back area at their disposal – a large gated, grassed field with a cute wooden train made out of logs, (shaded) play equipment (and sandpit) plus a number of ride-on cars, giant balls and bouncers.

Diners can choose between sitting outside (there are umbrellas, but if the weather is extreme, you are quite exposed) or in the indoor section, which is bright and comfortable. There are plenty of high chairs and colouring-in is also available.

For special occasions you can order high tea. You require two weeks' notice and a minimum of guests, but with three menus ($22 to $31.50pp) and a welcome weighting of savoury over sweet (no scones!) it would prove to be a perfect choice for birthdays, baby showers or just an excuse for something different.

You can also buy individual truffles and chocolates as well as gift boxes to take home. Flavours include nougat, whisky, praline, mint, orange, ginger and more. Bags of goodies such as chocolate covered liquorice, chocolate covered honeycomb or bags of pastilles are also available.

I still find it astonishing that I have been visiting Mandurah for years and had never heard of the local chocolate factory. Perhaps the locals were trying to keep it a secret… until now.
