From the Latin meaning, "Food of the Gods", is a gorgeous cafe in Knox Ozone that makes one of the nicest chilli hot chocolates that you will ever taste.

I caught up with some girlfriends on the weekend, and we had the best time laughing and talking as we sipped on delicious decadent chocolate and watched the people walk by.

Gorgeous chilli hot chocolate

Aside from hot chocolate, Theobroma Chocolate Lounge has an impressive selection of exquisite gourmet chocolates the perfect accompaniment with your beverage, and if you are still hungry you can try the Fondue Chocolate with mixed fruit and marshmallow dipping sticks, the waffles smothered in chocolate and served with either cream or ice-cream, or even the triple stack of pancakes, all mouth wateringly delicious.

Without a doubt if you want a lovely day or night out, in a relaxed friendly environment the Theobroma Chocolate Lounge is the place for you.

I love this place - good to see it written up on Weekend Notes! Theobroma do a very fine dark hot chocolate. Mmmm. There's also one at Ringwood - just as tasty.

A very apt,but a little quirky, name for this cafe. You are correct in stating that the word Theobroma is derived from the meaning "Food of the Gods", but it is of Greek - not Latin - origin. The Greek roots are theo ("God") and broma ("food"), meaning "food of the gods". But more importantly, it is the name given to the genus of plants that Chocolate is derived from - the Cacao tree. Chemically speaking, theobromine (which, incidentally, does not contain bromine) is an alkaloid which is structurally very similar to the other alkaloid that we consume in our daily tea and coffee - caffeine. The structural difference is that the hydrogen atom bonded to one of the nitrogen atoms in the ring is replaced by a methyl (-CH3) group.The suffix -ine given to alkaloids and other basic nitrogen-containing compounds.
