Lindt Chocolat Cafe

Recently I went to Lindt Chocolat Cafe on Collin Street in Melbourne with a couple of friends after many weeks of anticipation, we finally had a taste of the long awaited Macarons we hear so much about aka "Delices" at Lindt. We also tried some of the gourmet cakes from the selection available as well as tea and coffee.

The Macarons were absolutely delicious, crispy outside and chewy centre with a variety of different flavoured cream fillings. Every bite would dissolve in your mouth within seconds! We tried the Strawberry, Roselli, Passion, Champagne, Hazelnut and Caramel. It was the first time I've tasted a macaron and didnt know what to expect. They were definitely worth trying and I look forward to going there again :) My favorite was Strawberry mmmmmm...

Between the four of us, we also tried the Blueberry Chocolat Mousse cake and the Opera cake:

 Opera Cake

"This luxurious cake is made from thin layers of dark chocolate ganache, coffee butter cream and almond sponge that has been soaked in coffee syrup. The dark chocolate topping is adorned with 23 carat gold leaf."

 Blueberry Chocolat Mousse cake

"Exceptions are certain to be surpassed by the layers of chocolate hazelnut biscuit, blueberry compote and dark chocolate mousse that lay beneath a mirror of blueberry glaze."

Both cakes were delicious in their own ways, I myself much prefer the Blueberry Chocolat Mousse cake over the Opera as it had a more interesting flavour and was not as bitter as the Opera (im not too big a fan of very dark chocolate hehe). Overall Lindt Cafe was a lovely place to catch up with friends over some delicious sweets :) Do try it out if you get a chance and let me know what your favourite macarons were!

Happy reading,
