Known as the New York end of Collins Street, our newest store is located at 495 Collins Street, just next door to the Intercontinental Melbourne The Rialto Hotel in the heart of Melbourne’s financial district. It is our sixth Melbourne store, and fourth in the CBD after we first opened at the Paris end of Collins Street in 1965. Located within a heritage listed Queen Anne style building that dates back to the late 1800’s, the architecture is a perfect fit for Haigh’s. Whether you are staying in the hotel, or visiting the busy Docklands, our team are ready to help you find something delicious at one of our largest stores.

It's impossible to go into the city of Melbourne and not visit Haighs. Their dark chocolate truffles are the world's best in my opinion, and I love the fact they give me a free tasting too.

If you're a tourist or a local this is a must-do! Haigh's have the best chocolate around; far superior to Lindt in my opinion. The staff are friendly and the selection is amazing.

If you haven't tried the dark chocolate balls filled with a hard orange centre, you've not lived! But pretty much everything is great. Also a little treat every time you checkout is golden!

Haigh's are well known in Melbourne They have many varieties of chocolates. They have been an institution in Melbourne for many years. If you are lucky you might get a sample! No business stays at the top of their game unless they are proving customer satisfacion

A chocolate lover dream. A great place to satisfy your sweet tooth.They have got some really nice chocolate and especially their ginger chocolate is divine. If you are in Melbourne city, then give this place a go and you might end up with some really nice chocs to take home for your loved ones and for yourself too.

Haigh's sells the best chocolate. Our family favourite is the scorched almonds. I did buy some honeycomb milk chocolate bar the last visit which was delicious.

I am over 30 years in the Chocolate business myself, Haig’s Chocolate I would call it less than average because the quality is inconsistent and the Cocoa flavour is poor ( visited stores many times in the past). Therefore the products is highly overpriced! All stores I visited (Adelaide 2, Sydney 1 and Melbourne 2) do not attract me to... More

cruise down to this place, and prepare to buy as much as chocolates you can eat. take public transport, and make sure you can carry all the stuff you bought, when weather is extremely hot, don't melt your chocolates outside the door, just buy and melt the chocolates inside your tongue.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
