I’ve only ever heard good things about this place, and you know what? Every word is true.
Located towards the end of the main street in Hahndorf is Chocolate @ No.5. Set in a beautifully restored cottage, the polished timber flooring and stone walls give this place a warm and cosy atmosphere. The menu is more traditional with your beverages, cakes and waffles.
Today, I ordered the Flourless Chocolate Cake. The dessert was ready within 5 minutes of ordering and was beautifully presented. Flourless chocolate cake can either be dry and crumbly, or moist, rich and smooth depending on whether you beat the egg yolks and egg whites separately. The cake was the latter which indicated that the yolks and whites were mixed together. This just happens to be the way I like it. The liquid milk chocolate, the strawberry, the whipped cream and the jam were all nice touches, but the real star was the cake. It was simply heaven on a plate!
The staff were warm and welcoming, and the service was excellent. The pricing was average for the products on offer, but with their quality chocolate, it made it all worth it. The chocolate that they use is single origin and you really can taste the difference. Somewhere you need to visit if you’re in the area.
