Not far away from the city and up the South Eastern Highway, you will reach a town called Stirling. It is a beautiful little town, and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes which you can dine at. When you arrive at the main street, you will see a restaurant called 'The Locavore', turn down that side alley way and you will hit 'Red Cacao Chocolatier'. This is where we went today and we had a very indulging experience.
We first knew about Red Cacao from the VIP preview of the Cellar Door Fest, and had tried some of their amazing chocolates and today we got to sample even more. Red Cacao was founded by Marcus whom had a big passion about chocolates, so big that he went to Europe to learn, and then with his continual passion, techniques and creativity. Red Cacao has opened.
We opted for the coffee and matching chocolate experience for the cost of $8.50 each, don't worry if you know nothing about coffee or chocolate. The friendly experienced staff will take you through and match the chocolates to the coffee/ chocolate/ specialty drinks of your choice. Trust me, they know their chocolates. Each piece of chocolate has been carefully handcrafted, and if you desire you can also purchase and take them home with you. That is exactly what we did today.
We thoroughly enjoyed our coffee and chocolate matching experience today, and would highly recommend it. It doesn't matter.....you don't have to be a sweet tooth to enjoy chocolate, there's always something for everyone. There is a fully air conditioning indoor area for days like today, or if you prefer to sit outside and absorb the sunshine, it is also an option. Go on, next time when you are up in Stirling, go spoil yourself!
