Six ways to get your chocolate fix in Cape Town

From gourmet milkshakes to artisan Banting chocolate, we’ve found the best places for you to get your chocolate fix in Cape Town.

1. My Sugar

Sugar for My Sugar! Say hello to the chocolate milkshake of your dreams at My Sugar Chocolate and Coffee Bar. Or sip on micro-roasted coffee that’s been specially blended to match their exquisite handcrafted chocolates. Mmm… two fixes in one.

2. Nomu

Nomu’s skinny hot chocolate is a tried-and-tested South African favourite, but if you’re feeling more adventurous give their chocolate fondant or chocolate brownie baking kits a whirl. Pssst… there’s a naughty peanut-butter variation for both on the back of the box. And PPS: Nomu also does other delicious foodie products of the non-chocolate variety.

3. Lindt Chocolate Studio

Learn how to make your own at the studios of these Swiss chocolatiers… with or without the kids.

4. Le Chocolatier

Paleo from Le Chocolatier is the new ‘healthy chocolate’ rage. Made with raw organic honey from the Overberg region, raw cacao mass and raw cacao butter it will satisfy even the strictest of Banting devotees, or those who can’t eat sugar.

5. Honest Chocolate Café

Do yourself a favour and try the Banana Bread Bunny Chow; banana bread hollowed out and filled with ice-cream and chocolate sauce with a serving of spiced nuts on the side. You can thank us later.

6. The Creamery Ice Cream Company

If you’re a chocolate die-hard, you’ll want The Creamery’s most popular flavour, 65% chocolate. Throw in their seasonal fruit flavours including Yellow Nectarine, Lime Curd Swirl, and Catawba Grape, and we’re done. All made with local, sustainably produced ingredients.
