It's chocolate and it's fine
In the bayside suburb of Black Rock resides a lovely chocolate-focussed shop which, while being one of Hahndorf's Fine Chocolate stores around Melbourne, is known by the locals simply as "The Chocolate Shop".
Having visited recently with a friend for a coffee I found it to be a very relaxed atmosphere with as many forms of chocolate available as you could wish. With the arrival of our coffees came the offer of a complimentary gourmet chocolate (see pic above). The selection was rather dazzling and our host was very patient in explaining the many varieties and waiting whilst we dithered over our selection. The chocolates were rich and delicious, a lovely sweet treat to go with our coffee.
Being only a couple of blocks from Half Moon Bay it would be a good spot to stop on the way to or from the beach. Besides the plentiful forms of chocolate, there are cold drinks, coffees, chocolate drinks (I haven't tried them but hear that the milkshakes are particularly good) crepes, cookies and muffins.
