Itâ€™s around Halloween time of year, and even if youâ€™re not thinking of going trick or treating, you should treat yourself to a visit to Royal Arcade!
Because youâ€™ll find itâ€™s chock-a-block full of temptations and delicious treats…Â
Chocolate does the trick
This is a Halloween sugar hit of frightening proportions, and thereâ€™s no better place to start than Chocamama. Keep it short and sweet as you load up on fresh licorice, Turkish delight, honeycomb, boiled lollies, Tasmanian fudge, nougat, peanut brittle, and chocolate covered fruit and nuts.
Next stop is the chocolate treats at Koko Black which are simply out of this world. Weâ€™re talking chocolatiers of the highest order and if youâ€™re a chocoholic this is the place for you. Make sure you try one of the truly amazing hot chocolates offer.
Youâ€™re probably in need of a coffee by now and thereâ€™s no better coffee in town than Padre Coffee in Royal Arcade. The latest addition to the Padre family, you can relax with a fine brew or grab a delicious Eat A Scroll snack while youâ€™re there in the cosy surroundings. Or try their new range of chocolate collaborations withÂ Monsieur Truffle. If youâ€™re keen to brew yours at home, youâ€™ll find a selection of the best retail & brewing equipment too.
If a wonderfully cosy Italian cafe sounds the go, then go no further than the Royal Arcadeâ€™s renowned Caffe e Torta. Fittingly described as a little piece of Italian heaven, itâ€™s just like Nonnaâ€™s place with a selection of sweets, tasty baguettes, coffee and plenty of choices for the kids.
