Chocolate is a girl’s best friend… So suffering from Tuesdayitis, my chocoholic workmates and I power walked to the Lindt Concept Store and Cafe at Martins Place during another lunchtime adventure, with the hope of reviving our mentality. The store emphasized the royal nature of chocolate with glass cabinet displays, marble columns and sky high ceilings. The windows reached far up and created a heavenly atmosphere. I thought I was fantasizing, but perhaps this explains the glowing menu.
Lindt Cafe – menu
Iced Milk Chocolate
The cafe was filled with black power suits… and very little staff. As a result, the waiters/waitresses barely addressed our existence! However, once a table was available, I found that the service was very swift, maybe even a little too hurried.
I ordered the Chocolate and Caramel Poire.
Chocolate and Caramel Poire
Light, creamy and exotic… the poached pear was matched perfectly with the sweetness of the mousse and a rich textured base.
The Opera cake looked disappointing but the rich layers of chocolate and coffee was ecstatic!
A tiny serving of the schiacciata of roast beef, pumpkin chutney and rocket.
The temptation took over as we stopped by the chocolate and cake displays on our way out. I felt like a little kid in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory… but this was the place for adults to indulge (in moderation ofcourse).
