Calling all Willy Wonka fans: there’s a new chocolate cafe in town! Chocoelf Cafe, just four minutes away from Chinatown MRT Station, offers specialty coffee, gelato, and a wide variety of chocolate products. They’re all made fresh at their very own chocolate factory in Jurong!
The 17-year-old brand is headed by Joe, a surgeon who loves chocolates, and Josephine, a chocolatier who’s had more than 40 years of experience working with chocolate at five-star establishments, including Mandarin and Westin hotels.

For starters, try their chocolate bark that comes in flavours inspired by local dishes, such as kaya toast and bak kut teh. These chocolate barks are priced at $5.50 a piece, and if you prefer less experimental flavours, you could go instead for bittersweet Matcha Magic, or the highly raved Yoghurt Beetroot that’s said to be both sweet and tangy. There’s also a classic Vanilla flavour. All the barks are studded with freshly roasted hazelnuts for that extra crunch.

For other interesting flavours, choose from their series of Fresh Chocolate Truffles and Pralines. Ondeh Melaka ($4.50) is their take on the local dessert, starring coconut and gula melaka, or you can go for the Earl Grey Tarik ($4.50). Alternatively, the fruit series includes Blueberry Bless ($4.50) and Passionfruit Rose ($4.50).
If you prefer to get creative, Chocoelf allows you to customise your chocolate with your choice of toppings—something to satisfy the Augustus Gloop in us!

On the drinks front, you can find Ruby Hot Chocolate ($8), which is pink and citrusy, unlike your regular hot chocolate drink! It’s made with ruby cocoa beans that give the drink its natural pink colour. Otherwise, you could get artisanal tea to pair with their chocolates, including the highly recommended Rose Lychee Tea ($4.50).

What’s more, Chocoelf is the only chocolate maker in Singapore that’s been designated a healthier choice by the Health Promotion Board! Their chocolates are made with little or no sugar; instead, they’re infused with natural sweeteners━reviews online still attest to the quality of the chocolate here.
