Forget about Starbucks! This is the place in Mexico to enjoy great iced coffee and other chocolate delights! Can't wait to enjoy my iced cappuccino in the afternoon! I go everytime I am in PDC!

A gem of a cafe. Truly a chocolate lover's heaven. The beverages, pastries and ice cream are to die for. What most impresses is the genuinely friendly service. Morning coffee and a smiling," Buenos dias" from Rene, Lucero, Miriam, Fabiola or Gerarado will make your day as it does mine. What a wonderful oasis as the world of 5th Ave... More

A Mexican version of Starbucks but better and much cheaper. Table service, internet and a tastey collection of cheese cakes and other pastries and cookies.

The Mayan Chocolate beverage was delicious. I ordered the smallest size, which is the size of an espresso cup. Perfect to sip this rich, intense, warmly spiced drink. A larger size would have been too much, you would lose the flavor. A great break from walking up and down 5th Ave.

So where to start, I love ice cream so I tried that, yum! The local hot chocolate, with a little spice, yum! The espresso, a great pick me up, then I had to try the brownie, at first I shared that, but decided everyone needs their own brownie. If you love coffee and chocolate this is your place.

If you're on 5th Avenue and need a sweet pick me up stop in to Ah Cacao Chocolate Café, it's one of the best people watching cafes on the Avenue.
