Hyperlocal news about Melbourne's first suburb: Fitzroy 3065

Shocolate has left Fitzroy

Shocolate cafe and chocolate shop has outgrown its small Johnston St location, according to its owner who I spoke to earlier this week, and will be reopening somewhere else soon. In the meantime he said they would continue to trade online (a similar message is on their Facebook page).

But when I tested their website yesterday, it was down. Their domain name registration had been altered the day before. It’s hard to trade online when you don’t have a website. Maybe it’s a temporary error, but I’m not sure what to believe. Other chocolate shops have come and gone in Fitzroy and, with the trend itself seemingly over, San Churro remains the sole survivor.

Update: 27 February: their website is live again.
