Guylian Chocolate Cafe

Some things just never go out of fashion, and the hot chocolate at Guylian Café in Circular Quay is definitely on that list.

The Guylian praline special

Sure to satisfy the most seasoned hot chocoholics, the menu offers 3 delectable choices: 'milk or dark chocolate', 'praline chocolate' or the 'chocolate special' – house coffee with chocolate and whipped cream.

I went with the praline chocolate special which comes with a signature Guylian shell praline placed inside an oversized cup. The steaming hot chocolate is in a separate jug, ready to be poured over the praline which melts, adding to an indulgent chocolate experience.

It's rich and creamy, and the generous serve means you get nearly twice as much but with a price tag of $7.20, one might expect that. Serious hot chocolate appreciators won't be disappointed.

Not in the mood for hot chocolate? There are iced chocolates, milkshakes, coffees, teas, a selection of wine and champagnes, and for those wanting a civilised end to a meal, digestifs. Salads and savoury pastries are on offer, but if you want a uniquely Belgium experience, go for the Belgian 'Pistolets' - small crusty rolls which are normally enjoyed as a late Sunday breakfast treat. The 'Labneh and Tomato' pistolet comes with dried yoghurt cheese pieces, tomato, cucumber and mint served with olives.

If you have a sweet tooth, choose from an array of very tempting desserts such as the 'Poached Caramel Pineapple Cake' – baked blackcurrant gel with double vanilla mousse and walnut honey or the 'Freeze Rock' – Guylian chocolate cake with layers of Grand Marnier, strawberry, kirsch cherries with raspberry crème patisserie.

Tempting treats on display

A visit to Guylian Café won't be a cheap one but it will satisfy any sweet or chocolate craving you might have. Located in buzzing Circular Quay, you might have to fight the tourist crowd to get a table as its pretty popular day and night. Guylian's is also a great alternative to the noisy, smoky bar scene if you want to catch up on conversation with friends. So head here to experience hot chocolate heaven and indulge in some very hard-to-resist sweet treats, rest assured you won't need to have any for a while afterwards!
