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.

My boyfriend was going to be in portland during our anniversary, so I wanted to surprise him with a nice gift. I called cacao and asked them to let me know what types if white chocolate they had. An employee emailed me with a picture if all their white chocolate, as well as a description of each type. I could... More

We got the hot chocolate trio. It was incredibly rich and would be ideal for sharing. They have an incredible diversity of exotic chocolates for purchase. Able to complete all shopping for loved ones here. The salty caramel is sooo good. Considering whether I can have more shipped:)

We enjoyed the cocoa house, but felt the drinking chocolate was too heavy for our taste. The teenagers LOVED it! Fun people watching.

If you like chocolate, you must stop here. There are numerous chocolates to sample, and when you're done sampling, amble over to the chocolate bar and have a hot chocolate that will leave you moaning with pleasure! Three of us shared a 2 oz. demi-tasse of hot chocolate, and we couldn't even finish it. It was rich, thick and utterly... More
