Packed full of rows and rows of every kind of sweet imaginable in sparkling glass jars, Cocoa will transport you back to childhood with its nostalgic treats, or let you indulge in gorgeous, fancy chocolates from around the world.
The folk behind Cocoa Wonderland run it with tons of verve and passion, sourcing and stocking a wide array of sweet treats for those of us inflicted with a sweet tooth. I love "oohing" and "aahing" over their overflowing shelves full of amaretti, turkish delight and chocolate-dipped orange slices.
There’s a cosy and super cute cafe upstairs: the Cocoa Lounge. If all its floral patterns and pastel shades are too much for you, pick up a bag of goodies to scoff at home. The lounge also hosts book clubs, knitting groups and chocolate lock-ins.
A wonderland for sure.
