This Easter may not look quite like any Easter we’ve seen before, but that’s no reason to miss out on chocolatey goodness, as Melbourne businesses have pivoted to bring Easter to you at home.
Here are some recommendations from Hidden Secrets team to get you through, because who would we be if we kept our hidden secrets hidden? The Chocolate If you know Hidden Secrets, you know we love Koko Black. We’ve been working with partners Koko Black since day one, which means for over 16 years now! Koko Black stores are currently open for pick up so you can hop in and hop out by phoning ahead with your order. Koko Black is an absolute go-to for a decadent range of Easter chocolates, and they’ll also fix you up with delivery if you can’t make it into their stores.
Their Easter range is currently 20% off and you can check out the whole range here.
Or, for something a little different, you could try a Beer, Caramel and Australian Native Lime Chocolate by Monsieur Truffe, made exclusively for Melbournalia.
Melbournalia will also sort you out with Hey Tiger Easter chocolate bars or eggs, with a Mini Easter Bar for free if you buy two products. You can check that offer out here. The Spicy Easter Gewurzhaus, situated in the Block Arcade, is one of the best smelling places on our Lanes & Arcades tour route with their aroma of herbs and spices. For Easter, they’ve got some unique offerings for both adults and kids alike; with Organic Easter Bun Tea and Hot Cross Bun Spice for those willing to give home-baking a go; sweet rabbit figurines for the little ones; along with a special Hey Tiger x Gewurzhaus range for the chocolate needs. Check out their whole range of Easter products here.
The Hot Cross Buns
If you prefer your Hot Cross Buns managed by the professionals, Earl Canteen are offering Noisette traditional hot cross buns delivered, along with pantry staples to get you through. You can order those here. Or, if you’re after something a tad different, Short Stop Donuts have Hot Cross Doughnuts on offer here and are offering delivery too. After coffee to go with that Hot Cross Bun? Tulip Coffee, which you’ll recognise from Degraves Street, is now selling whole or ground beans for you to get your brew on at home, with free shipping here. And Flinders Lane institution Dukes Coffee is also shipping nation wide here. The Gifting
Easter is a great opportunity to catch up on some reading, and local bookstores have put together some great recommendations for our littlest readers.
Hill of Content has put together a collection Easter books for the little ones here and they are currently offering free postage nationwide. The Little Bookroom also has a great list of Easter books here, and are offering free same or next-day delivery (depending on when you order) in Melbourne’s inner-north suburbs. They’ve also launched a weekly Storytime online for the little ones to watch while they can’t make it into the bookstore for live events. Finally, if you’re looking to the future, we do have Hidden Secrets Tours gift vouchers available for purchase. These will be redeemable on future tours when we’re back in the laneways, and may well give you something nice to look forward to. You can purchase those here.
