If you follow my blog, you would realize that North Adelaide, in particular, O'Connell Street, is a special place for me as it's where I have lived for 3 years since my arrival in Australia. Back then, there weren't many dessert options for the sugarholics (like yours truly) and the nearest dessert cafe that you can go to would be Elephant Walk, located on Melbourne Street. Being a student means walking is probably the most convenient and affordable transport you can get at 10pm and thus, I have only crawled to Melbourne Street a handful of times.
Now....students living in the nearby colleges are lucky enough to experience the exciting pop up of new shops along O'Connell. Chocolatree opened up a year after I moved out of college (say in 2011?) and although they had a rocky initial start, I am glad to see that things have improved which resulted in a steady line of customers on most nights. What more could you ask for on a cold, rainy winter night other than sharing a steaming hot cup of chocolate with friends?:)
