I was here in 2011 on my last trip to SF. Its a great place to stop for ice-cream, coffee, and cocoa. You will drool over the chocolates in the case, and can buy them by the piece. It was quite busy her this particular Saturday. I should have purchased some coffee to go as well.

Definatly suggest you stop there on your... More

Housed in a charming little structure reflecting Santa Fe's rich architectural heritage, Kakawa is one of several chocolatiers in the Land of Enchantment! Frankly, it is at the top of the chocolatier pyramid. Though I have tried many of their divine chocolates and scrumptious truffles, the one chocolate siren that calls my name daily is the chocolate peanut butter bar.... More

If you love chocolate, this is the place. I appreciate that Kakawa is in an older building which is charming and noncorporate. The service is excellent.

When in 'the city different', a visit to Kakawa is a must. This little gem of a chocolate place serves hot chocolate the Mayan way; not cloyingly sweet, just pure chocolate goodness in a Demi-tasse cup. They also serve homemade ice cream and hand-dipped chocolates, as well. The staff is very friendly and will offer you tastings of all the... More

We loved the helpful and friendly staff. If you can only visit one place in Santa Fe...this is it! The chocolates are so gourmet, creative, exotic and delicious! Try the Mayan elixir if you like it on the spicy side.

The staff were very pleasant the free sipping chocolate samples are, well, unique and extremely good. We shared a salted caramel organic ice cream topped with real whipped cream and homemade chocolate fudge. The ice cream was light and very tasty. We only sampled the sipping chocolate but it was quite good. I highly recommend this place.

I was somewhat skeptical when I read about the chocolate drinks - I'm not a huge hot chocolate fan. This stuff is so decadent - unbelievably delicious. Taking plenty home to tie us over - pretty sure this may be on the gift giving list for Christmas next year!

Stopped in on Sunday and the place was packed. People just sitting around sipping chocolate and eating delicious looking chocolates! Was greeted by a super friendly staff person who let me taste several drinking chocolates "elixirs" and told me about the ingredients. They were amazing but in the end went with the hand made citrus pistachio ice cream! It was... More
