Guylian Belgian chocolate is famous for its signature seashell designs which you can purchase from inside the cafe. The seashell chocolate has come a long way since its invention in 1960.

The menu offers a variety of milkshakes, coffees, hot and cold or iced drinks. The affagato is a must for coffee lovers. A coffee topped with a scoop of Guylian’s exquisite vanilla ice cream and chocolate flakes, served with a sample of the infamous seashell chocolate.
Views which take the cake
The views over the majestic Sydney Harbour makes the Guylian Cafe one of the most scenic Sydney cafes. Overlooking the ferry terminal at Circular Quay, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, the views from this restaurant will have you eating chocolate late into the night. Sit back and enjoy watching the ferries dock in at Circular Quay and the crowds of people pass by.
If sitting outside isn’t for you, you can also enjoy the comfort and warmth of sitting inside the cafe, surrounded by all of the cakes and chocolates available for purchase. You’ll still get the views of Sydney Harbour with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background, but you’ll also get to enjoy the constant smell of Belgian chocolate and fresh coffee.
Prime time to visit the chocolate cafe is in the evening, during sunset. The setting sun provides picturesque views of glistening water and a night sky lit by the city facade and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Hot drinks like the Guylian cafe’s hot chocolate special, a blend of milk, dark or praline chocolate, and warm waffles for dessert go down a treat in the cooler evening.
