Love Koko at Royal Arcade. Love the chocolates like no other! Newly renovated. Looks great. Such a shame about staff behind chocolate counter. Walked out last Friday after waiting what seemed forever. Same thing today. Some constructive criticism. Please have more staff behind your counter.

Stopped in for a quick bite. Just had a chicken and avocado toasted sandwich / it was yummy. Finished with a soy Belgium Hot Choc. Both the hot chocolate and toasted sandwich was hot, tasty and well priced. An easy little arcade to pass by...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
