Theobroma Chocolate Lounge - 21 Sep 2012

Cuisine: Chocolatier, Dessert, Breakfast, Cafe
Location: Karawara, Waterford Plaza opposite Curtin University

I have a more recent food review of Theobroma Chocolate Lounge here.

Theobroma Chocolate Lounge is a place I’d heard about and been meaning to visit. Well, I had my chance today. After enjoying a nice lunch at Bintang Cafe Indonesian Cuisine, I headed off to Karawara which is not far from Victoria Park. It’s been a long time since I’ve driven by Curtin University from my days of attending there and much has changed, including, Waterford Plaza. Appears like it’s been newly developed.

Anyway, I was in the search for Theobroma Chocolate Lounge and after a bit of a while, I managed to locate it and walked in. Not that many people around, probably still eating lunch. It’s a shame I was full as I would have fancied stopping by for their desserts or a cup of hot chocolate at the least. Instead, I gazed at the display window looking intently at the many different chocolate varieties on offer and wondering which ones I should choose. Could I not take them all? Maybe a bit much so I settled only on 10 varieties which are generally at $2 a pop (can’t remember them all and what their exact names were):

  • Redliscious Kiss
  • Cappuccino
  • Baileys
  • Hazelnut Praline
  • Salted Caramel
  • Chilli
  • Strawberry Cream
  • Hazelnut Nougat

I slowly savoured them over the course of 3-4 days, yes, I can exercise self control. Delicious! What was different about these chocolates was not only their shapes but the mixture of different types of chocolate to create different textures. An example is the Cappuccino chocolate in the shape of a tea cup. The top was a mix of brown and white just like a coffee with the cup completely brown. Biting in, the solid top layer had the distinct coffee flavour, underneath, a solid white chocolate layer to signify milk and add creaminess, and underneath, a soft chocolate centre adding a different texture to the solid layers above. I really enjoyed each and every chocolate.

As I was walking out, I had a quick look at the menu. They have simple lunch options like BLTs and other sandwich type meals. There’s also desserts like waffles with chocolate sauce plus various chocolate type drinks and coffee too. The other display window apart from the chocolates contained cakes and pastries so it’s like a cafe but there’s plenty of chocolate too.

    Mate,
    How does this chocolate cafe compare to Koko Black chocolates?

    • Hi Sean, in terms of the chocolates, both were delicious but I think Koko Black might shade them, however, Theobroma presents different textures and looks more visually appealing. As a cafe, Koko Black wins hands down. The appeal of both is different. I prefer Koko Black’s cafe offerings.

Restaurant Rating System

It's subjective but I base my reviews on 4 key areas:

Price: Bargain > Reasonable > Moderately Expensive > Expensive
Taste: Poor > Average > Great > Delicious
Value: Poor > Good > Reasonable > Excellent
Recommendation: Eat At Home Instead > Try Once If You Want But Not Worth Visiting Again > Worth Visiting > Recommend > Highly Recommend

The final recommendation will consider the price, taste and value. Value will be based on price and other factors like service and serving size.
