amazing views, lovely food and friendly service. This place is under rated and under utilised. There are amazing views and the food is pretty good. We had the nachos and the kids had a savoury muffin and cake. The coffee was good

Sunday afternoon, or any afternoon for this reason to experience dessert heaven. If you love chocolate treats or anything delicious....like a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake for one and then just guide your eyes along the dessert cabinet and change your mind at least 4 times. Sunny day, seated in the garden looking at the views...what more could you ask for.

Stopped for a coffee and to see what else they had. Ended up with a couple of very nice chocolates, a coffee and some baked cheesecake. Coffee was nice enough, not great. Baked cheesecake was good and the chocolates excellent. Hardest thing was to choose which ones. Area out the back is excellent if it's not raining, nice grassed area... More

We are visiting from the US and have had breakfast/brunch here on several occasions and have enjoyed it. Food, and especially good coffee, seem to be priced higher in general in Australia than what we're used to, but the higher prices at the Chocolate Cottage are warranted by its quality and presentation. I love the salmon benedict and the breakfast... More

This is my 'go-to' place for a lovely meal either by myself or with friends. While the meals are a little more, the quality is always consistently excellent, and there are some interesting options. Lots of lovely cakes, not to mention the cabinet full of chocolates! Staff are always nice, and there are several different shops in the complex, with... More

We went to this place on advice of friends to enjoy Devonshire tea. Much to my disappointment when the scones, jam and cream arrived it was that horrible cream that disappears before you eyes as you try and spread it on your scones. Yes you saved some money but I will never go back. Proper whipped cream is easy to... More

Great setting, atmosphere and food. Perfect on a weekend and very relaxing. Coffee was the only reason I didn't give it a perfect score. Just a little bitter.

This cafe is part of a collection of several historic and modern buildings that comprise the Village Square in Highfields. The cafe has a broad menu from Devonshire Teas, gournet toasts, homemade pies to substantial gourmet lunches, and broad range of housemade chocolates.
