Cheeky Chocolate, North Strathfield


North Strathfield is definitely a growing suburb, not long ago another Pancakes on the rocks was open and now a new creation of Adriano Zumbo – Cheeky Chocolate has opened in North Strathfield. With about 100 free parking right opposite the dessert place, you never need to worry about finding a car spot (free parking on weekend only). I think this is certainly a good addition to the inner west. Without travelling to the City CBD, you can still find a place for a chat and sweets after dinner with your friends.

Upon our arrival at around 8:30pm on a Saturday night, the place was already packed. We waited for about 15 mins before we get a seat and the waitress kindly offer us to go inside to have a look at the cake display and the menu. The menu is not an extensive one, and 3 out of the 7 dine in dessert menu wasn’t available on the night. However, the service of staff was super friendly and also allows me to take as much picture as possible! (Exactly what a food blogger would love to hear!) Absolutely love the Victorian décor inside Cheeky Chocolate, chandelier crystal lighting hanging from the ceiling and wooden furniture are just beautiful.


After spending a considerable amount of time choosing what to order finally we opted for one dine in dessert and one cake from the window display.

Will you pash or dash – chocolate fondant with passion fruit centre, toasted white chocolate & orange soaked pineapple, $18


Fondant was served on a long slim plate which the white chocolate foam was about to spill out, both JC and me agreed that it would be better if it was served on a round plate. We cut the fondant in half and the passion fruit chocolate just oozed out like how it should be. I enjoyed the fondant a lot because it was moist and not overly sweet. I especially love the orange soaked pineapple, as you can see there was lots of vanilla bean in the mixture and that just offsets the richness of the dark chocolate. But what I don’t like about is the ice-cream on the left, it was a bit bland and icy.


Apricot jelly, white chocolate mousse, almond crumble, apricot and yoghurt creamy and pistachio, $11

I don’t want to be chocolate overdose, so I opted for a fruity dessert on our 2nd options. This dessert was refreshing and tangy. Almond crumble and biscuit on top gives a nice crunchy texture to the dessert.


Chai latte, $4.90

The chat latte here is soothing and aromatic. The silky smooth texture went down easily, the cup was so big that I struggled to finish it.


Skinny Cappuccino, $4.90

Coffee here is not bad too!

Overall, this is not a bad place for a called in to get some take away dessert and the service was great even though they were very busy on a Saturday evening. Beautifully presented cakes and dine in dessert.

    Good idea to order a fruity dessert. My friends had hot chocolate + chocolate croissants + chocolate dipping sauce the other day… I don’t think I’d be able to have that much chocolate.

    Well… what a HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT! Extremely overpriced and bad service 😦 I had a chocolate brownie and a vanilla thickshake… the brownie was $9.50 and it had a real christmas fruit cake taste, with rasins and all – just weird considering I was expecting a chocolate explosion… the thickshake was decent but for $6.50 I would have settled for the same tasting one at McDonalds. Service was terrible from the time we walked in until the time we left.

    I won’t be revisiting!
