It’s a must-go. Their Venezuelan chocolate is absolutely amazing. Their affogato, I heard from someone, is even better. Their cold brew is just right. And their service, despite slightly spilling the aforementioned cold brew, makes it extremely easy to fall in love with. :)

Stumbled into the lovely little jewel-box of a sweet shop at the tail-end of an evening out on Calle Ocho and purchased a small assortment of sumptuous little chocolates to take home. Very good!
