Chocolate Mark – Wilkie Edge

Located in Wilkie Edge, Chocolate Mark is yet another option for the students of Kaplan City Campus to hang out at.

While most of the cafes these days put a focus on artisan coffee, Chocolate Mark instead specialises on chocolate. The menu revolves around Chocolate-based drinks, as well as non-chocolate drinks such as coffee. A handful of pastries are also available.

(Ham & Cheese Croissant)

An ongoing promotion entitles a free pastry to go along with a cup of chocolate. Petite-sized, the Ham & Cheese croissant is warmed up before serving. It is well-filled with cheese, though overall it felt rather standard and passable, though it was also felt a bit stale somehow.

(Lemon Tart)

If anything, the Lemon Tart was a safer option. The tart base was more cake-like, and it gives a bit of sweet flavour to the well-balanced taste of the lemon curd, which was zingy but not too sweet as well. Taste-wise was rather decent, though not particularly mind-blowing but the balance of flavours was perfect.

(Mexique)

Their specialty was their hot chocolate, all of which available in different percentages of cacao. Mexique comes with 60% cacao, which is bittersweet and spiked with liquor which gave it an indulgent touch. It’s worth to note that the drink was rich and smooth, and it also did not feel particularly heaty as it did not leave a burning sensation down the throat as well.

While the pastries and bakes at Chocolate Mark was a wee bit underwhelming for me, I was pretty impressed by how the beverage turned out. Probably I might have tried the wrong ones, but it would be nice to see Chocolate Mark come up with chocolate desserts (Chocolate Truffles maybe?) to further strengthen their identity. Oh yes; they also have electric sockets for those who would want to do some serious work here, though the weak aircon does make one feel like leaving after a short while.
