This is a peek into one of the chocolate factory areas.


There is also an option for customers to customise their own chocolate slabs. Choose the choc and add some toppings.

Quick Look at the Chocolates Showcase

The most attractive items are the bite sized chocolates known as bon bons. They come in different colours and flavours such as Single Origin – 72% Calinan Dark, Single Origin – 80% Anaimalai Dark and Cookies & Cream. They also have a few alcohol filled options such as Negroni Classic and Rum & Raisin. They cost $25 for a box of 6 and $42 for a box of 12. Not cheap, but they look like jewels!

Our Coffee Break at Dempsey Chocolate Factory

With so many cafes to choose from at Dempsey, Mr Bucket stands out from the others in a few ways. First – it runs a factory on site. Second, it is quite specialised and chocolates form the main part of its repertoire. Third – its whimsical name and its logical connection with Roald Dahl’s famous novel which was subsequently made into a movie.

    

For our coffee break at Dempsey we decided to try a bon bon tasting set ($12) and a Signature Chocolate Dome ($13) with black coffee ($6) and cappuccino ($8).

Bon Bon Tasting Set

For our bon bon tasting set, we had a choice of any three. We selected 72% Calinan Dark, Tea & Biscuit and a Coffee Caramel Whisky. All of them were good but the best was the one with the whisky.

Being named the signature item of a chocolate factory, the chocolate dome must always feel the pressure to perform. It was indeed worthy of its name. The dome was a delicious dome with strong chocolate flavours. The taste lingers on the palate for a long time. Best eaten with strong black coffee.
