Monsieur Truffe is a chocolate and cafe store located at 90 Smith St Collingwood. It’s a cute little store that had me floating in from the smell of chocolate alone.
It’s a comfortable little place, with lots of space for people to sprawl about while they drink their Virgin Mudslides.
I might be the only one, but presentation rates a great deal with me when buying a hot chocolate otherwise the part of my brain that only buys movies on Tuesdays starts comparing what I just bought to a tin of Nesquick. Fortunately they passed this test with flying colours, although the wooden spoon was a bit unusual.
There is a definite lean to the dark side of chocolate, but the 65% cocoa hot chocolate I’d ordered was just right. The 4 year old Nerdling seemed pretty pleased with his ice chocolate, but that might have just been due to the enormous scoops of ice-cream floating about.
As well as the standard brownies and chocolates, the store also stocks chocolate bars, cooking chocolates and various other bitter-sweets. Oh and twenty internet points to the first person who guesses which TV show virgin mudslides is from (they’re just milkshakes, Shirley).
