Take a Flight!

This place was recommended to us so we tried it out before leaving Portland. What I've learned on my trip is that flights are the best option to taste more flavors in smaller amount for a reasonable price. I recommend you to take a hot chocolate flight of three flavors: dark chocolate, cinnamon... read more

We stopped in to have some of the sipping cocoa that has been raved about. We did the sampler trio and it was very indulgent. I thought the chocolates were pretty good, but the sipping chocolate too sweet. The person behind the counter seemed a bit snobby too.

Not my jam. Way too rich and the flavor just didn't do it for me. Also very expensive for what you get.

Heart of downtown, right next to the Heathman Hotel. Hot molten chocolate. Fifty shades of brown. Rich and decadent. Do I really need to spell it out? Go there after 2 hours after dinner on a cold night and order the the flight of melted chocolate. Savor it over an entire hour. The only downside is that there's not a... More

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 in my life.... More

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.
