BLOG OF THE MOMENT: I Eat Therefore I Am
A trip to Sydney, no matter how short or long is never complete for me without at least one (or two) visits to the Lindt Cafe. Featuring a sensational selection of beverages and treats, the Lindt Cafe is much more than it seems and is surely a must visit destination for any serious chocolate lover. Heck, they even serve lunch and have various specials throughout the day including half-price take-away beverage between 4-5PM.
Whether it is a slice of cake or one of the decadent chocolate truffles made using the finest Lindt chocolate, you are sure to be impressed with your selection. Or of course you could indulge in the famous hot chocolate. Just look at those vessels of melted chocolate patiently churning away throughout the day.
My guilty indulgences:
Famous Hot Chocolate: Available in milk or dark chocolate. A little caraffe of melted chocolate is presented along with a jug of foamy hot milk. ($6.50/ mug).
Opera Cake: This luxurious cake is made from thin layers of chocolate ganache, coffee butter cream and almond sponge that has been soaked in coffee syrup. The dark chocolate topping is adorned with a 24 carat gold leaf. Pure indulgence and oh so pretty. ($11/ slice).
Connoisseurs' selection truffles: Available individually from the display cabinet or gift boxed. I enjoy four varieties: The multi-layered Lindt VIP, Chilli Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and Pistachio. They work out to be about $2 each - worthy of every last cent. ($16/ 100 grams).
The Lindt Cafe also serves a range of excellent macaroons, ice-creams and various other sweet treats. And with three locations throughout Sydney (and Melbourne plans underway?) why not check it out for yourself.
