“Great Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stumbled upon this place, because I liked the sign outside.... We went in and quickly discovered it was a speciality chocolate shop. Paisley was so awesome, she was so insightful, welcoming and very helpful. We had the sampler flight (3 shots for $6.00) Very cool tasting experience.

We even ran into Bill Fagerbakke who was awesome and totally made our stop a highlight of our day.

If you are looking for specialty chocolates from around the world, this is your stop!

“Oh Chocolate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I had the tasting menu of 3 or 4 chocolate drinks and they were all wonderful (and worth the calories). If you love chocolate, make it a stop for dessert. Even in liquid form...oh chocolate!

“Unbelievable drinking chocolate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Never heard of drinking chocolate, but it's like drinking a chocolate bar. AMAZING!!! Made with 2 shots of 72% chocolate plus milk and cream. Location is in the main level of the Heathman Hotel.

“Chocolate I have never seen before.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Visiting a friend on Portland. Insisted we try this place. Just has a shot of drinking chocolate. Super rich. Employees super friendly. They have a lot of the great chocolates from San Francisco like Rechiutti. Fun to look around and a treat to drink a shot of drinking chocolate.

“Mmmm... chocolate indulgence in a cup!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Stumbled upon Cacao by accident and popped in for a flight of drinking chocolate. Rich and indulgent but absolutely delicious and a must try for any chocolate lover for sure (the flight of 3 may appear small but don't be fooled, it's the perfect size to share, a little molten chocolate goes a long long way). Decided to pick up a few gifts for the other chocoholics in our family as well and appreciated the very friendly and knowledgeable service from the fellas working that day!
