Cacao Fine Chocolates & Patisserie have just opened the new Cacao Lab in Driver Lane in the heart of Melbourne. Pastry chefs and chocolatiers Laurent Meric and Tim Clark have fused together a science laboratory and a gourmet chocolate shop in the fun atmosphere of the new chocolate lovers haven.
The Cacao Lab front display window has four large hand-blown glass domes descending from the ceiling covering gorgeous cakes on a white tiled surface. These entice you to step inside the modern store to admire (and eat) the delectable delights on display. Each creation is a work of art in its own right.
The custom made orange resin display counter and orange tables provide a dash of color to the clean bright white surrounds that seat 22 people.
A wide selection of freshly baked pastries, warm savouries, baguettes, decadent cakes, mouth watering macarons, luscious handcrafted chocolates and brightly colored éclairs tempt the senses.
