Service was great at 5th Ave & Constituyentes Ah Cacao Chocolate Cafe. Our friend that lives in Mexico took us there and we were very pleased with our baking treats we had. She highly recommended this Cafe and we sat in their air conditioned lounge. I would go back!

Bought chocolates as a gift and the people were very pleased. I bought the mayan chocolates, a mix of dark, milk chocolate and white. Pure delight, I was told.

This place is very good. I didn't give a full five stars due to it having a smaller selection. Overall the quality is high and there are samples available. It's almost a guarantee you'll buy something if you try it.
