Order the Mexican hot chocolate! I was out shopping along 5th and it started to rain. Ordered the hot chocolate and brownie and I was in chocolate heaven.

“Ahhh Delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Chocolate lover? Coffee lover? Yes? You're sure to implode just walking into Ah Cacao! This great little cafe, filled with delectable beverages and noshes, was my stop of choice every day while in Playa. The hot mocha is out of this world and their brownies are simply mouth watering. Both locations have a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Ah Cacao is A MUST for anyone who loves relaxing with some chocolate … and coffee.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Great Wi-Fi spot that is busy all day long. Cheaper than Starbucks and coffees just as good. Try the brownies and banana bread.
