“If you like American chocolate don't waste your time ;-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Best chocolate in the US hands down; mostly 80% plus cocoa content like real European chocolate instead of the sugar filled rubbish you usually find in the US.

Sea salt caramel and rosemary chocolates were our faves ...

Cannot recommend highly enough - delicious! especially the chocolate elixir drink with chili - mmmmm :-)

“Amazing!! A Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

If you're in Santa Fe and don't stop into Kakawa you've missed out on an incredible find. It's an adorable chocolate house with a warm welcoming atmosphere. The chocolate elixirs are so rich and decadent . The staff are charming, personable and fun - I just wish I lived closer so I could be a regular! Maybe I'll see if they can ship to Boston. ;).

“Warm end to a day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Nice.
Walked up late & the Open sign was just turned off, but we poked our heads in and were easily welcomed. We felt at home. No rush.
Inside we found intense, warm flavors ... a mix of traditional and adventurous.
Blood orange, peppermint, vanilla lavender, chili ... good stuff.
Demi-tasse size chocolate elixirs were recommended. Spot on.

“O...M...G...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

You have never had hot chocolate like this! Staff was wonderful and helpful, as my husband tasted about 5 different types, before deciding on a cup of his favorite. We didn't even buy the chocolates, as planned. Bought bags of hot chocolate to take home instead!

“Silky elixirs sate the cacao starved palate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

Loved the chilli and Zapotec - salted caramels almost as good as Aussie ;-)
American a bit sweet for this palate
