Hahndorf's Fine Chocolates Geelong is a franchise and one of 9 stores across Victoria.
We are a combined café and chocolate shop with hot and cold drinks along with sweet and savoury food. We are unique in that you get a complimentary chocolate with every drink purchased.
Inspired and educated by German chocolatiers Manfred and Erica Kolerg, Hahndorf’s opened their first store in late 2001. North Balwyn, 7 kms from the Melbourne CBD, was selected as the perfect location.
The North Balwyn store was the first in Melbourne to offer a café style chocolate shop producing chocolate so that customers could relax, enjoy a drink and cake while sampling the chocolates.
Over time Hahndorf’s have stuck to their initial concept and increased production and the range to suit our customers’ tastes.
As a result of the success of the initial store, further shops opened across Melbourne and Geelong offering the same handmade truffles, chocolates, gift boxes & hampers to eager customers.
Due to the increase in demand from customers, Hahndorf’s opened a second factory in 2004, at the base of the Dandenong Ranges just outside Melbourne, to produce over 90 products that make up the Hahndorf’s range.
Today, customers are welcome to visit any of the stores to see and enjoy the ever changing creations on offer.
