Just like it's sister institution (The Yarra Vallery Chocolaterie), The Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery is a very welcome addition to the Surf Coast and it makes for the most wonderful morning or afternoon pit stop. The newly built establishment has been beautifully designed and constructed - with quality finishes throughout creating a modern and welcoming atmosphere.
The free milk, white and dark mini pastille samples at the door as you enter, leave you wanting more and there's an impressive range of chocolate items for sale with everything from giant chocolate freckles, chocolate frogs, chocolate buttons and even chocolate infused handcream and lip balm! Plenty of gift ideas - hint, hint! You'll also be able to watch the chocolate masters creating behind the glass walls.
The back part of the building features a huge dining area for the cafe - offering a multitude of healthy lunch options and huge, chocolate centred desserts (the brownies are a winner) and drinks. Order at the cafe and staff will bring your delectable goodies to your table.
If you're not sitting indoors then there's some seating available outside which overlooks the large fully fenced lawn area. This is a super spot to watch the kids play as it's complete with a sandpit, cricket bats and balls.
If you want to brush up on your chocolate making skills, the Chocolaterie also offer Adult and Child master classes: http://www.gorci.com.au/classes/
