Espresso and Matcha's Foodie Odyessy - Melbourne Day 7 Afternoon Tea: Ganache

After an afternoon nap to digest our lunch, we headed out again to have afternoon tea as part of our rest (aka. sleep and get fat) day. Waking up right on the dot when our tummy alarms went off, we headed to Ganache chocolate for afternoon tea. 

We were greeted at the door with a range of cakes and chocolates upon entry.

Wanting to eat in rather than take away, we were soon given a table inside. 

Quite a detailed but worn menu was given to us. 

From the chocolate selection, we tried an irish creme, and the cappuccino truffle, which was served on a chilled, but very old and worn glass plate which was chipped all around the corners. Despite the presentation, the chocolates were rich and smooth without being overly heavy on the palate. I enjoyed the soft centre of the truffle, but would have liked more Irish creme flavours in the other piece.

Our order arrived not too long after that.

My companion, with his new found love, ordered iced coffee. It was served in quite a delightful cone shaped cup, served with vanilla gelato and garnished with chocolate sprinkes. He said that the coffee flavours were rather light, but regardless, it was still quite refreshing.

We also ordered the dark forest cake to share. It came with a surprisingly Christmas-y theme, with its little tree decoration and red and white circle. We found it to be very soft and rich, with its delectable layer of cherry gelatin, it was very delicious. 

On the other hand, I settled for a mint hot chocolate, which was very heavy and rich, but without being overbearingly sweet. It had quite a strong chocolate-y taste to it, but wasn't particularly minty. In fact I had my companion try a little bit, and he also found a mere hint of mint. The almond biscuit on the side though, was crunchy and very sweet.
