Imagine a real life chocolate store where the mouth-watering delights on offer are reminiscent of Willy Wonka’s dreamland chocolate factory. Well daydream no longer Sydneysiders, because Jeff de Bruges boutique chocolate store in Bondi offers the sort of silky smooth chocolate experience that may cause you to launch yourself into the displays, Augustus Gloop style.
Opened in November 2015, Jeff de Bruges Bondi is the first Australian venture for the brand, which has more than 450 stores worldwide. With the aim of creating traditional chocolates with a modern twist, Jeff de Bruges unites the indulgence of Belgian chocolate with the flamboyancy and chic factor of France.
Frenchman, Phillip Jambon, created Jeff de Bruges in 1986 after realising there was a gap in the market for fine and delicious chocolate that was accessible to all. The Sydney store is based on the same principles of the original store in France – accessibility, quality and creativity. The talented chocolatiers are constantly exploring new recipes and ideas, and experimenting with new flavours in each collection.
The classic range of chocolates at the Bondi shop primarily follows what is on offer in France. This includes special collections for occasions like Christmas, Easter and Mothers’ Day. Jeff de Bruges’ range of chocolates can be bought individually or in conveniently packaged boxes, allowing customers to taste a variety of the chocolates on offer.
While praline, caramel and fruity chocolates are extremely popular among customers it is truly difficult to beat the ganache. Try the Jeff de Bruges Divine Caramel with salted butter caramel or the Divine Hazelnut Praline chocolate ganache with a hint of lemon, and we can assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
Jeff de Bruges Bondi offers several flavours of ice cream such as lemon, chocolate, salted caramel, vanilla and frozen yoghurt. The store has also launched a line of milkshakes including super chocolate, caramel chocolate chips and sweet vanilla, all of which are made using Jeff de Bruges ice cream and chocolate.
Jeff de Bruges sources its cocoa from many countries including the Ivory Coast and is involved in a Quality Partnership Program. This program supports a mutually beneficial relationship between the company and local cocoa growers and aims to improve both the quality of cocoa produced and the quality of life of growers and their families.
With the Jeff de Bruges store in Bondi being extremely well received by customers, there are plans for more stores to be launched across Australia in the future. In the meantime, why not drop by the Bondi store for a or two?
