Unusual chocolate store

They have a wide variety of bars (white, dark chocolate), some with flavorings and some without from all over the world. What is interesting is that their chocolate is not Euro-centric. They do have some chocolate from Europe but also from Asian, Latin and Sourh American countries and other places... read more

This was my first time having a drinkable chocolate. I started ordering their dark chocolate and it was like I was in heaven. After that I couldn't resist ordering the second cup, this time the cinnamon and one. It was totally worthwhile to get out of our original route just to experience a few minutes in heaven. I strongly recommend... More

After dinner, we went to Cocoa for dessert. As this was our first time, a repeat customer advised us to go for the 2oz cup as the chocolate can give you a real sugar buzz when you're not used to so much at once. Yummy!!! I could have had the 4oz, but was happy to stay reasonable. We had one... More

I had a shot of the regular and a shot of the cinnamon and both were delicious. The only way to describe this is it was like an oral orgasm. Needless to say I enjoyed the flavor and mouth feel. Good stop if you like quality chocolate drinks.

The chocolates here are really, really good. I would have rated it a "5" star but the atmosphere inside just felt a bit pretentious. For some reason that seems to be the vibe of many fine chocolate houses. Not sure why that is but it is. The actual floor space of this Cacao is pretty spacious with the actual display... More

I'm always on the hunt for a city's best chocolate. The chocolate I had on my visit here rank in my top 2. I think this may even tie for first. My husband and I shared a handful of artist crafted chocolates like ghost pepper caramel, salted lavender, ginger and raspberries. Each was delightful. The heat of the pepper caramel... More

Nice gift ideas, great vegan caramels, and the shots of chocolate are to die for! Try milk, dark, or spice! I did a trifecta and almost had a chocolate overload! Definitely worth the try once, then buy some to take home! No website but they deliver..

There are plenty of chocolate shops out there, but for some reason I became completely addicted to this place. I think it was because of the hot chocolate. I ordered the dark hot chocolate my first time there, and it is no exaggeration to say it was the single greatest chocolate experience I've ever had! So deep and dark and... More

Their selection of chocolate is amazing! It's a wonderful place to go for that craving! They have local chocolates and chocolate from all over the world! My favorite chocolates are the Blue Cheese truffle and the Passion fruit truffle, they both sound weird but are really delicious! The lavender caramels are really good too!

My husband and I enjoyed Cacao as a twist to the typical night cap. It was a fun and tasty twist! The staff was very friendly and helped us pick something off the menu.
