Dello Mano, Newstead

You  haven't lived until you've bitten into a Dello Mano chocolate brownie - they take the world sublime to a whole new level.

Owners Deb and Bien Peralta are passionate about brownies and are always coming up with new flavours to try.  Their brownies are so popular they are the gift of choice for visiting dignitaries and are shipped all over the world to people who just can't get enough of their chocolate fix.

It's a family business and you'll often find Bien or one of his children behind the counter while Deb is out the back devising more brownie magic. 

There's also Dello Mano cakes and I can't imagine anything more sinfully delicious than one of their luxury chocolate brownies turned into a cake!  But there's more - chocolate souffle cakes, carrot cakes, apple and cinnamon cakes, and even a black forest cake.

Relax with a cake or cookie and enjoy with a smooth Di Bella coffee in their library nook. There's indoor and outdoor seating as well.  Love the stools made out of old 'paint' cans.

Bottom line: A mixed, boxed assortment of 16 brownies will set you back $59.50.  I prefer to buy mine individually and enjoy just a couple at a time.

Best tip:  Bien has matched the coffee profile to the chocolate so you can enjoy both.

Best for: Chocolate lovers heaven
