140 William Street, Perth, (08) 9226 3929.
The Koko Black store on William Street looks slicker than most, but that’s not the only reason we visit. Daily chocolate tastings allow visitors to sample the company’s handcrafted treats and gleaming glass cabinets display a mouth-watering array of truffles, pralines, blocks of chocolate and gifts.
Even vegans have something to drool over. Amidst the spotless glass and industrial black streel, visitors can kick back in the lounge – a cosy café where the signature Belgian hot chocolate, Koko’s exclusive blend of coffee, cakes and other desserts are hard to pass up. Visit their website here.
