It is officially winter and time to get out and get amongst the hot chocolate so I went to an old friend with friends – Salamanca Wharf Café with Ben and Tegan. Conveniently located across the road from my work, this was the cafe of choice for my early French lessons with Samantha. It got to the stage where we would walk in, sit down and our hot chocolates would appear out of nowhere. And we loved them! But all good things come to an end, and the hot chocolate turned into chocolate flavoured milk, so we found a new place to go. Then Samantha upped-stumps and left, but I am sure that was nothing to do with me, my French or the hot chocolate.
Since then Salamanca Wharf Cafe has changed management and I has heard the hot chocolate was on the improve. So when Ben and Tegan suggested we go there for a drink (yes, I am a gooseberry and proud of it), I was excited to go back and see if was back to normal – or at least on the way.
It short summary, it was not good. If anything it was worse than I remember. Milky and bland. I am not even sure asking for an extra-strong version would help. However, to focus on a positive, they do serve great lunch and chai tea 🙂
