I managed to dig up some more of my old photos and came upon a stash of Chocolatree desserts. It is quite easy to miss if you don’t know where you’re looking, but Chocolatree is just at the start of O’Connell street. I went here last year and had shared the Ice Cream Amore and Mudslide.
From the name of the Ice Cream Amore I should have known what to expect. This was basically a very small little piece of meringue at the bottom which was then topped with 2 giant scoops of vanilla ice-cream. It costs $9.90, I should have spent my money on a giant tub of vanilla ice-cream at woolies, could also have brought some strawberries, pavlova nests, whipped cream in a can and ice magic and made this dessert myself.

The mudslide looked really cool but it was very rich and tasted quite ordinary. Again I could have gone to woolies and brought a mudcake or a chocolate muffin, warmed it up and topped it with ice-cream, ice magic, whipped cream and strawberries. This was just how unspectacular it was :/

On another occasion that I went, I had heard great things about the Belgium chocolate waffle but it was again another let down. Tasted alright but nothing to write home about. It was extremely small for the $10.90 you paid. This time I won’t suggest you to go to woolies but to actually make your way to Waffle’s in Leigh St to pay the same price for Belgium waffles 4x the size.
Overall, I wouldn’t come here again even if I was in a mode for dessert. Also, don’t be fooled by their opening times on facebook. A friend from interstate wanted to eat here for brunch on Sunday and facebook said it was opened by 8am. We rocked up by 10am and it still wasn’t even opened :/
