Drove past Kakawa on our way to our hotel - a distinct building easy to spot! Once I read it was a place for chocolate I've been on a mission to visit! Our business here is done, so now our visit is relaxed-and what a great place to start! We both tasted three drinking chocolates (8 on the menu) and... More

Saw this place listed as the #1 place in Santa Fe, so had to check it out. We had the American liquid Chocolate drink and caramel brownie. YUM! After sipping our drinks and devouring our brownie, we decided to take 4 drink mixes home with us. Next day, we returned for additional chocolates and truffles for the road. Don't miss... More

The best service with the best chocolate! Definitely a must do when you are in Santa Fe. I recommend the caramelized goat cheese with sage truffle, sounds weird but oh so good 😋

A full day in Santa Fe: New Mexico Museum of Art, lunch at the Hotel St. Francis, perusal of the New Mexico History Museum, puddle jumping among tourists and vendors. We deserved a little chocolate. A quick walk from the Catherdral took us to Kakawa Chocolate House where both "Meso-american" (100% )Chocolate, and American (70%) hot chocolate drinks are offered.... More

Don't miss this little cafe for great, unique hot chocolate. They have spicy, New Mexican style hot chocolate or more sweet European style hot chocolate. We have tried 5 different kinds and loved them all. Their chocolate candy is delicious too.

トリップアドバイザーの口コミを見て行って来ました。 店内はチョコレート一色でドリンクの種類がホットで10種類以上、アイスで5種類以上有りました。 店員さんはとても気さくで何種類でも試飲をさせてくれました。アイスのリキサーを注文しましたが、とにかくボリュームが凄い! カカオがとても濃厚で他では絶対に味わえない美味しさでした!!! 量が多いので小さいサイズがオススメです。 オーナー(Tomさん)は日本にも来たことがある方で日本人だと話すとショーケースから、チョコレートをサービスしてくれました。 ガナッシュのチョコレートでしたが日本人の口にも合うと思います。 是非、日本人のトリップアドバイザーの口コミを見て来たと言ってみて下さい。 Thank you Tom,We really enjoy your services. Loved it !!!

This is a chocolate lover's dream! You can try samples of all of the many hot chocolates available for that day. I can't remember which ones we tried now that a few months have gone by, but if this place was in my neighborhood I would get to know the menu well. We also had some yummy truffles. The staff...

If you are shopping on Canyon Road, you can't miss a stop a few blocks away at Kakawa Chocolate House. They offer small cups of their chocolate elixirs ranging from mild to spicy. Their handmade truffles have some really unique flavor combinations and include things like chili or lavender. This is a good spot for both your average chocolate lover... More

The visit can be short, but make sure you do visit Kakawa Chocolate House in Santa Fe. Have an elixir or two and sit for a bit in the nice atmosphere while you decide what you're taking home with you. I recommend trying the different chile elixirs for a different spin on chocolate.
