A trip to Hahndorf isn’t complete unless you stop off at Chocolate @ No.5. With an assortment of hot chocolate beverages, chai, coffee, iced drinks, milkshakes and fruit smoothies, you really are spoilt for choice. Of course, if you’re looking for something more sweet and substantial, they have a selection of Belgian sugar waffles, chocolate fondues, desserts, cakes and ice cream sundaes. Adelaide Food Central was invited to sample some of their offerings. All food and drink were provided free of charge.
For a beverage, I decided to go the healthy route knowing that desserts await. I ordered the Blueberry and Banana Pure Fruit Smoothie. Served in a large milkshake glass, this was both healthy and delicious. The blueberries were slightly tart but were balanced by the natural sweetness of the bananas. A great way to start off proceedings.
For dessert, we started off with the Caramel Pecan Ice Cream Sundae. Served on a classic sundae bowl, the presentation was what you expected. Generous amounts of soft delicate cream sat on top of a smooth, creamy ice cream. The wafers and pecans added a nice crunchy texture, and the caramel just tasted good in anyone’s language.
The other dessert we had was the Apple Crumble Belgian Sugar Waffle. I’ve had my fair share of waffles around Adelaide and I have to say that these were the best that I’ve had. The waffle was crunchy on the outside and doughy in the centre. The crystalised sugar pieces inside the waffle were well complimented by the apple crumble. Simply amazing!
Everytime I’ve been to Chocolate @ No.5, they’re always packed and there is a very good reason why. Their beverages and desserts are top quality, and people know that. Combine that with fast, friendly service and a casual, relaxed atmosphere, and you’re on a winner.
A place that you must visit when in Hahndorf.
