    Here you will find the city’s best selection of single-origin chocolate bars. It carries the work of small-scale chocolatiers and has a wide range of confections from locals. Read more

    Hit Cacao on SW Washington and 13th and drink of the spicy dark hot drinking chocolate, and be one with your endogenous opioids.

    Great place to pick out some chocolate for yourself and gifts. You might think, wow, $8-$14 for a bar of chocolate? That's probably what you'd spend on an average stocking stuffer. Do it!

    Cinnamon infused drinking chocolate is amazing! Smooth, sweet and just the right amount of spice.

    EVERYTHING IS CHOCOLATE. Don't come in and ask for something non-chocolate. NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

    If you come here, you have to order the drinking chocolate! Get a small size and order the cinnamon milk chocolate one. It's by far the best.

    This is an amazing place with a wide array of chocolate. The drinking chocolate is awesome - seriously try it!

    Taste as much as possible and if they have any special drinking chocolates just go for it. Have a shot of anything and you will never see hot chocolate the same again. This place is a true gem.

    Smooth almond milk chocolate. Not as thick as I expected but a good chocokick anyway. Macchiato is OK but nothing special. Quiet, and nice staff. Window stools are cool for people watching!

    The staff can at times be over pretentious or even snotty. Thankfully the product makes up for it tenfold. Highly recommend a visit!

    The spiked hot chocolate -- while not boozy -- is incredible. Seriously, it tastes like a rich liquified chocolate bar. Solid vegan options and tons of great gifts for the sweet tooth in your life.

    Once, when I couldn’t decide which dark chocolate bar to splurge on, the owner spent an hour creating an impromptu chocolate tasting for me, so that I could pick my poison with an informed palate. Read more
