Just walked by and saw this

I was originally looking for a coffee, but then I saw this place and I gave it a try. "Drink Chocolate" was their logo. I ordered two shots of different chocolates. They come in paper shot glasses. My first one was a spicy chocolate, the second was dark. This was the best chocolate I have ever had... read more

Had the liquid chocalate and it is outstanding. They also have a great variety of various chocalates. The staff was very helpful

I saw this place originally on buzz feed and then on trip advisor. Honestly, it is just not worth the hype. No one in my group enjoyed what we ordered, the employees seemed lost, and the place was just way too crowded.

They have amazing chocolate here! There is a huge selection of chocolates coming from all around the world. You can find about any type of chocolate here, including chocolate with bacon. They also have something called drinking chocolate which is pretty much melted chocolate. It is amazing. This chocolate shop is really great, one of our favorites in Oregon. If... More

Outstanding selection of chocolate bars...a wide selection of makers, and excellent choices from each maker, including Patric. A few missing (most notably Madre Chocolate, a bean-to-bar maker from Hawaii), but you will not be lacking in choices. Hot chocolate and drinking chocolates, and very nice staff. Truffles were not as impressive (at least one brand I can get in my... More

We enjoyed stopping at Cacao while staying at The Heathman. The Cacao staff recommended handmade chocolate by cloudforest, which tasted even better with their amazingly decadent almond milk hot chocolate, perfect for non-dairy hot chocolate lovers.

If you like chocolate and not just grocery store chocolate, then you will love (L-O-V-E) this little shop. The staff are super knowledgeable about their chocolates, which come from a variety of vendors (some local). They also serve drinking chocolate, which is a wonderful warm way to enjoy chocolate. Browse, ask questions and have a nibble.

This is a pick up and go spot, unless you get one of the 4 bar seats. Don't be afraid - just go to the Heathman Hotel and pop into Cacao and ask for a cup of drinking chocolate - simply decadent. Not something I would have normally done, but had a sample on a foodie tour and then returned... More

I've reviewed my restaurant experience previously,and I feel it is important to let people know how delighted I was to receive chocolate to my door for Christmas. We visited Portland in October and visited Cacao for a sweet chocholate drink. We had also purchased a few chocolate bars - all artisan made in Portland - and devoured every decadent morsel... More

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. Next time I am in Portland I will try the... More
