GODIVA Chocolatier Opens Lifestyle Concept Dessert Café @ ION Orchard

Luxury Belgian chocolate brand GODIVA Chocolatier has opened its very first lifestyle concept dessert cafe in Singapore. This also marks the brand’s first foray into Southeast Asia. Located at B1 of Ion Orchard, we were invited to the grand opening party on Thursday and got a first glimpse of the 40-seater cafe with its gold and dark brown colour theme.

GODIVA Chocolatier Café offers a wide variety of gift boxes filled with GODIVA’s luxurious and signature creamy dark, milk and white chocolates. Finished with a thick ribbon tied into a fancy bow, these boxes are grab and ready-to-go presents for your loved ones.

Alternatively, if pre-packed boxes are not your thing and you would prefer to customize your gift, do check out the inviting glass display of decadent truffles and pralines.

The Carré and Praline collection starts at $28 per 100g while the Truffles are $34 per 100g. Judging from the prices, you can be sure that these luxurious treats are really for very special occasions or for that special someone.

And yes, they do come in all shapes and sizes too. When in doubt, the classic milk chocolate fashioned in the shape of a heart is always your best bet!

Not forgetting the well-loved soft serve in a cone that comes in three flavours- Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Twist and Vanilla White Chocolate $9, we dare say that this is deserving of its accolade as being one of the best soft serves in Singapore to date. Everything just comes together- the richness of the chocolate, the smoothness of the milk and that crunchy cone lined with biscuit bits simply sealed the deal for us.

Also on the menu are options where the soft serve comes with seasonal fruits such as berries and bananas or even atop a waffle square for $12-$14. Alternatively, go big with either their Dark Chocolate Fondue Set or Hazelnut Praline and Milk Chocolate Fondue Set served with seasonal fruits, macarons and marshmallows. Each fondue set, made with melted GODIVA Carre Chocolates, costs $45.

Loving those distinct and intricate layers of the Gâteau Opéra $12.

Chocolate dipped fresh strawberries, dried fruits and marshmallows are available as well. Although given the price point, I might suggest that the fondue set would be more value for money, especially if you have a group of friends with you.

It is hard to resist the temptation of those white chocolate finishes though!

So now that this 90-year old premium chocolate brand has finally opened their first lifestyle concept dessert cafe in the heart of town, it is time to grab your friends out for an evening of gold-accented luxury, decadence and of course, sinful chocolate. Enjoy!
