Lovers of all things chocolate now have a new spot to hit up, as Belgian chocolate brand Godiva has opened its first Singapore and Southeast Asian lifestyle concept café. Located at Ion Orchard shopping mall, the sleek new Godiva Chocolatier Café is decked out in a palette of gold, white and brown — a reference to the colours of its products’ packaging, of course — and its walls are lined with antique photos documenting milestones in its history.
The store features display cases containing its variety of pralines and chocolate gift sets, as well as a counter where customers can order its popular Chocolixir drinks and soft serve ice cream.
For dine-in patrons, there is also a tempting repertoire of Singapore-exclusive dishes such as waffles served with either soft serve ice cream or fruits with whipped cream, and chocolate fondant. Also available are chocolate shakes, sundaes and customisable fondue sets in options of melted Godiva Carre dark or milk chocolate, which are accompanied by sides of fruits, macarons or marshmallows. If you need a break from all that cloying, chocolatey goodness, the café has a range of coffee and tea.
“At Godiva, we are constantly looking to tease and indulge the tastebuds of chocolate enthusiasts all around the world. Every piece of chocolate is thus tastefully made with the greatest dedication and mastery honed over decades of experience,” said Philippe Daue, Godiva’s Chef Chocolatier for Pacific Rim & China.
