Eating Out: Lindt Cafe Chadstone


Category : ,

Ok, so I'm going to blame it on being half Swiss for being totally obsessed with the opening of Melbourne's 2nd Lindt Cafe. I mean I only just went to check out the first one in Collins St a mere 3 days ago.... and I couldn't wait to finish work and get down to Chadstone to see what the newest cafe looked like.

Sorry, low quality iPhone photos

The Lindt Cafe is located in the new mall that just opened today at Chadstone. Housing 50 new stores, it's all so new and shiny. But I couldn't concentrate on anything else but LINDT!
It's probably the worst thing for my waist line at the moment, but well, it is Lindt after all. I could eat Lindt balls all day, and they have so many varieties I still need to try!
I would say the Chadstone cafe has more seats than the Collins St cafe, but the Collins St cafe feels far more sofisticated.

Until the 31st of August 09, you get a free "delice", or as they are commonly known; maracon with every hot chocolate. Not feeling like I needed the extra fat of a hot chocolate, I bought some maracons to take home for dessert at Rob's house. As some of you may know who follow me on twitter, I attempted to make iced vovo cupcakes, but they failed and ended up looking like yorkshire puddings. Not wanting to arrive empty handed, I picked up the 2 macaron flavours they had on offer: champagne and dark chocolate. I was rather disappointed they didn't have the passionfruit or black currant. Maybe next time...

They were packed so nicely in the box, almost like getting a present! There are 8 maracons in there, and I swear they are to be shared! I'm not going to eat them all myself. I had half of the champagne and half of the dark chocolate... all in the name of "research". Well that's what I'm going to call it!

I'd have to say I much prefer the dark chocolate to the champagne flavour. But Rob's sister really enjoyed the champagne. The dark chocolate is very rich and you can definitely taste the chocolate flavour in every way possible. But I still prefer the passionfruit one I had.

I can't wait to try all the flavours found in the collection pdf found here: http://www.lindt.com.au/1/6/34/56.asp I suggested to Rob that he can get that for me for Christmas!

And that folks, is visit number 2 to the wonderful world of Lindt.

Oh Gosh... macaroon haven. Thank you for sharing the experience of Lindt online, Shellie. You don't happen to have any spare macaroons lying around do you? xxxx

Oh, those look so nice!

I bet though you could have gone the whole box. You know, for research purposes as you've said. You have to be thorough with your testing and there needs to be a large enough sample size to elimitation statistical variation... :P

I'm still dying to try out the hot chocolate and macarons. Just haven't had a spare moment but will endeavour to do it soon. My mouth is drooling in anticipation! :)

I love the way they package things up at Lindt! Have you seen their amazing Lindor ball flavours? If only they'd allow photos inside. It always looks immaculate though so I don't really understadn why but there you go...

Hi Kiran - I DO happen to have 2 maracons lying around.. but they are all MINE =)

Hi Simon - strictly for research purposes only ;) haha

Hi Rilsta - make sure you get exotic maracon flavours! I hope they will be at Taste Festival again!

Hi Lorraine - It's just so sophisticated there! I love it, and it's just chocolate. But with me, it's not JUST chocolate, it's SWISS chocolate!

obsessed is a strong word - I think you are 'devoted' to Lindt!

Hi Kyla - ok "devoted" is the word! =)
