A Few Words About Us

Bracegirdle’s House of Fine Chocolate.

Divine hot chocolate, decadent desserts and deliciously smooth coffee. Welcome to Bracegirdle’s House of Fine Chocolate. Bracegirdle’s own range of fine chocolates are handmade on-site by our highly talented chocolatiers. Naturally, such excellence is rewarded by the public and judges alike, with Bracegirdle’s fine chocolates winning Gold Awards at the Royal Adelaide Show for the past seven years plus Champion Chocolate and the Most Successful Exhibitor

Our renown extends far and wide, with our handmade chocolates finding their way into the luxurious Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island, Longitude 131 at Yulara ( including Prince William and Kate) a pair of chocolate stilettos for Lady GaGa, and when Cirque du Soleil were in town, we supplied their Opening Night treats.

These indulgences are offered to the delight of your senses in three superb locations… The original Bracegirdle’s House of Fine Chocolate opened its doors in 2005 in a renovated heritage property on Jetty Road at Glenelg. Bracegirdles at 190 in Main Road McLaren Vale, south of Adelaide has the perfect marriage of chocolate, coffee, food and wine. Enjoy the new fantastic full menu at McLaren Vale. It includes rrestaurant-stylemeals served in a relaxed cosy atmosphere that is truly Bracegirdles. A kiosk style Bracegirdles opened in the David Jones Mall at Westfield Marion in December 2012 and brings a luxurious feel to the centre. Cross road, Clarence Gardens is the head office of Bracegirdles and also has the chocolate kitchen which is open to view the Chocolatiers working on Bracegirdle's handmade award winning range of chocolates.

Hope to see you soon for a coffee to start the day, a light lunch, high tea, decadent dessert, our famous hot chocolate or award winning handmade chocolates.
