Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Icrecreamery is a family-friendly destination in the heart of Yarra Glen. The property’s main attraction is a stylish, shaded building housing a chocolate factory, shop and cafe.
The cafe spans indoor (air conditioned) and outdoor areas with views overlooking the rolling environs of the valley.
Inside there are free chocolate tastings and of course chocolate shopping, but make sure you stay for morning or afternoon tea in the café.
The chefs are all European trained patisserie chefs (who specialise in chocolate) and we try the chocolate brownie, chocolate mousse gateau and white chocolate and berry parfait.
The brownie is particularly spectacular – a crunchy outer housing an oozy centre. It comes served with ice cream that’s churned from local milk and cream and is made fresh on premises.
If you haven’t had enough chocolate the desserts come with a shot of milk, dark and white chocolate from the chocolate wheels by the counter, so remember to specify what chocolate shot you’d like!
For kids they have colouring in activities for when the weather’s cold and wet…
…and lots of green grass, outdoor toys and farm animals to visit for when the weather’s good.
Other than eating chocolate and ice cream kids are kept amused by the glass windows where they can watch the factory at work.
If you’re looking for a child-friendly destination in the Yarra Valley you won’t be able to beat the temptations on offer at Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Icrecreamery.
