Koko Black is a chic and modern cafe in the Claremont Quarter shopping centre. It is the ultimate place for chocolate lovers and as a self confessed one myself I had to pay the newly opened Koko Black a visit.
Inspired by chocolate adventures in Europe, Shane Hill launched Koko Black in Melbourne. With his passion and hard work, Koko Black has arrived in Perth town, in the sleek and ultra modern Claremont Quarter.
The salon in Claremont has a fairly good sized menu for a coffee, dessert or light lunch stop.
As tempting as the Belgium Martini Mousse was, all I needed in that moment was a coffee and a little chocolate to kick start my Sunday study session when really I would much have preferred to be in bed snoozing!
The price of a coffee is $3.80 and it is served with a generous amount of chocolate flakes. Koko Black use St Ali specialty coffee.
The handmade chocolates are $1.95 and my choice was the salted caramel which contains cocoa butter, caramel and sea salt flakes. Salt, caramel and chocolate may sound unusual but when combined the taste is amazing, combining those 3 ingredients is all the rage these days. We also ordered the Lemon Curd Tart Petit Four ($3.80) and the curd was nice and soft.

Luscious gift boxes for sale
Koko Black also offer a high tea ‘Queen of Hearts’ which can be purchased at any time of the day. They have a range of gifts in store and you can box some of their lovely handmade chocolates.
Quite often places that serve such indulgent products lack quality in the basics such as coffee however this was not the case at Koko Black and I can confidently say the coffee was perfect!
Koko Black is open until 11:00 pm on a Friday and Saturday nigh. It’s great to see this in Perth, we need more places like this for the lovers of the night.
Koko Black is walking distance from the Claremont Train Station.
