Cioccolato Espresso has been a neighbourhood favourite at Applecross Village for years, and it’s sure to continue under the new ownership of Russell and Anita: “We have many exciting things to come,” says Anita. “A new talented head chef and baker will soon be joining the team. And we can’t wait for our new Moteef cushions created by Applecross designer Terri Loannou to bring additional warmth and colour to the place.”
Anita is passionate about the cafe’s “warm, community feel” and heaps praise on her “amazing, friendly staff” who know most of their customers by name. Loved locally for delicious breakfasts and lunches, Cioccolato makes its own cakes and slices, sauces, dressings, condiments, granola, Bircher, Spanish beans and more, and you can often catch a coffee and cake special. “Our cafe is nestled in what we consider the perfect spot in our beautiful village,” Anita says. “Come and say hello!”
