Good hot chocolate to go very rich flavour. Was a bit pricey but was open later and we needed chocolate fix.

“Overpriced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

This place is overpriced and the service is terrible. After waiting for 20 minutes for our order, we approached the counter and they didn't even know what we had ordered. We never tried the hot chocolate, and asked for our money back. Juan Valdez, next door is a much better option. The service was efficient and the coffee was excellent.

“Nice and delicious place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

I went to meet it and have a hot chocolate and I leave not only with the satisfaction of having tried a good hot chocolate but with a holster full of delicious chocolates thanks to the environment and especially the attention of the salesmen. Hope you can go there and try it more than once, because it's worth it!

“Chocolate cake covered in mould.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The coffee here is good, it's hard to find good coffee in Quito. But, we ordered a slice of what looked like tasty chocolate cake but as we dug our fork into the cake we were taken back by little green explosions. Mould was all over one side of the cake. We told the chap working there and we received an apology and a free slice of cake. Not good enough if you want returning customers.
