We're huge fans of the movie Chocolat and going to Kakawa was like our favorite movie come to life. "Chili pepper in hot chocolate" was exquisite as were the truffles we took home (and are still enjoying!) The service was excellent, the hosts treated us like we were family. All around a wonderful experience, we'll definitely be back!

From the inviting staff and owner to the decor and the warm atmosphere Kakawa is the perfect destination for anyone. We stopped here every day of our visit and enjoyed our experience both times. Delicious decedent chocolate in liquid form is just the perfect pick me up. Kudos!

My family and I love visiting Kakawa when "eating" our way through Santa Fe! I love the American chocolate drink and recently fell in love with the crispy chocolate chip cookies! (Yes, I even went back two days in a row for the cookies.) My husband and son loved the caramel brownie and my daughter loved the ice cream. There... More

Who knew chocolate had such subtlety, range and potential. This small cafe-like building houses a variety of warm, smooth, blissfully complex chocolate drinks served in small mugs. The basic order is about the size of a double espresso. The store's chalk menu contains flavors that are bitter, sweet, spicy, earthy ... whatever you're in the mood for. And the owner... More

This was the perfect way to finish our Santa Fe Food Tour. The chocolate tasting was as much fun as a wine tasting and the staff friendly and informative. After enjoying the myriad of flavors we were given a 3 oz cup of the elixir of our choice as part of our tour. My sister and I sat at a... More

We stopped by here after a long day exploring Santa Fe. I don't know if I will ever be able to eat any other chocolate after tasting something this amazing! The people there were all so friendly and they let us sample anything we wanted. They have wonderful chocolate elixirs which are like hot chocolate with better flavours. The truffles... More

I had heard about Kakawa on previous trips to Santa Fe but had been focused on my workshops. This time I finally made it and what a treat to the taste buds! The drinking chocolates are sublime, and they have several daily. I love the fact that they both have 'sweeter', 72% elixirs for the uninitiated palate but that there... More

What a great place. My wife and I stopped by here while visiting Santa Fe from Dallas. We had read about it on trip advisor and I must say we were just as impressed as everyone else seems to be. We have all been to chocolate shops before but Kakawa takes it to another level with their chocolate drinks. What... More

No matter your specific chocolate preferences, there is a chocolate here for you--and you can sample several before committing yourself. I found those with chiles just wonderful. There is no better break in the day than a good cup of REAL chocolate. Don't miss this delicious spot.
