“Chocoholics go here!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

The amazing Mexican chocolate is served in many different ways here, including body lotions of all things. The chocolate ans chili ice cream was to die for but my absolute favorite was the chocolate mouse. Made my eyes roll back in my head lol.

“Deliciously moist cake ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

After visiting this cafe 5 times i have to say this is an incredibly indulging cafe to come for excellent coffee and deliciously moist cake. I have tried almost all of the cakes but the carrot cake is my favourite. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere, you must choose this place over the several Starbucks dotted along this road. There are 3 ah cacao along this busy road and each as equally as nice as the other. Definitely worth a visit.

“awesomeness in a cup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

have a small cup of Mayan chocolate for a couple of bucks, and just enjoy the people watching. highly recommend purchasing your vanilla here as it is top of the line stuff, about 9 USD. picked up a bottle for my chef friend who says same bottle goes for 27 CDN at a Toronto swanky grocery store. They also sell sexy little bottles of chocolate massage oil as well as shampoo for a couple of bucks, and they make great little gifties. this is a never-miss spot for me when in PDC or Cancun.
