Bon Bon Fine Chocolate Cafe @ The Strand, George/Pitt St


Everytime I go shopping on Pitt St, I always walk past Bon Bon Fine Chocolate and want to try the cafe but never got around to it, until now. On a lovely Sunday afternoon with great friends, we were heading to the ballet. But, before going to the ballet we headed down to the Bon Bon Cafe. The cafe is located below the fine chocolate store. It is dark and intimate with a d├ęcor of suit cases, mirrors and chocolate facts. They offer a high tea option, and normal dining. The dark lighting made it difficult to take photos, so apologies for the bad quality.
Poached chicken and avocado sandwich

A combination that is loved by my friends and seems to never go wrong. A generous amount of avocado with chicken and rocket to balance out the entire sandwich.

Smoked salmon, avocado and rocket on toast

Anything with smoked salmon is delicious (in my opinion). The toast looks burnt, but it was  a rye bread. There was little bits of dill which provided a kick.

Poached eggs with halloumi cheese, avocado, cherry tomato and rocket

I love poached eggs, I could eat it at any meal. The avocado wasn't as good as the ones that were with the salmon. The halloumi cheese adds a different light to normal cheese on bread, tasty dish!

Banana split

It was called banana split on the menu, but it was more of an ice-cream sundae. The best part of the dessert was the home-made honeycomb that was nestled under the cream. The honeycomb added a sweet caramel crunch along with the macadamia nuts. I didn't  finish it but my friend did, the perks of eating with friends to finish off dishes.

Sticky date pudding

Ice-cream filled profiterole

The sticky date pudding and profiterole were my friends dishes. The sticky date pudding was with a caramel sauce. I am not big on sticky date pudding, therefore I found it mediocre. The profiterole was very different. instead of custard there was ice-cream. It was a bit strange for me, traditional profiteroles are the way they should be.

After the dining experience they provided each of us with an empty box. The waitress told us to go upstairs and pick out a chocolate from the Bon Bon Fine Chocolate store, only rule was that the piece of chocolate had to fit in the box. A lovely surprise to be able to pick out a free chocolate.

Bon Bon Fine Chocolate Cafe is well priced, where you can get lunch and dessert for less than $30 per person. The staff are friendly and the cafe has a lovely brunch feel.

Good food, good times!
