Cool warm vibe I wouldn't expect from Anchorage. I got to try a little sample of the Mayan chocolate. I was too full from lunch to order a whole cup, but I did buy a small tin of powder to take home. The tin itself would make a cool little souvenir for my desk to hold paper clips or something.

If you like your chocolate on the wild and interesting side, this place is for you. The truffles are divine, and the drinking chocolate..well, I'd suggest a taste of the Mayan chocolate before ordering a cup, but if you like spicy, you'll love it. If not, they have a non-spicy drinking chocolate that's pure love in a cup. And you... More

I'm not sure why they think mixing all this weird stuff in their chocolate is good. I find chili peppers in my chocolate a great way to ruin good chocolate. Most of it is super dark too. So if you are looking for a great caramel filled chocolate, don't look here. But if you want something really strange in your... More

Reminds me of the movie where they say "I want to get chocolate wasted!" You could definitely do that here. They had delicious drinking chocolate, I ordered mine with cappacino, a display of truffles and snacks and other chocolates you could purchase such as salmon covered dark chocolate. There are also comfy lounges and tables and chairs so people can... More

If you are a choco-holic - this place is a must visit! The hand made fresh chocolates will amaze you with the variety of flavors - everything from chocolate cream filled to lavender flower petals, to curry infused and even an anchovy topped one! They are all incredible and must be tried to believe! The spicy hot chocolate is a... More

They have a fantastic selection of homemade chocolates and others from around the world. Their drinking chocolates are fantastic. A laid back feel is great for relaxation and maybe catching up with a friend over chocolates and a coffee. If your new to anchorage, stop by!

I love these guys for their drinking chocolate. I can't even find good drinking chocolate that matches it in all of England. They do it nice and thick and rick the way I believe a true drinking chocolate should be done. The only down side to their chocolates is the truffles and chocolate bars are quite expensive. Other than that,... More

Prices are outrageous, even by Anchorage standards. I found the drinking chocolate to be bland, without depth or complexity and rather bitter. I guess I really made a mistake by getting it with steamed milk. It never occurred to me that it would be SKIM milk! I was not offered any samples to help me while trying to decide what... More

Modern Dwellers has some stunningly beautiful chocolate truffle things with the oddest flavor combinations imaginable. After trying several of these expensive treats and being a bit disappointed (fish and chocolate don't go well together, people; I don't care what kind of fish it is or how it is prepared), I have determined to stick to the item that draws me...

Never thought about drinking chocolate before. Was a real experience. I enjoyed it but they also make a mean cappuccino. Great place.
