The chocolate is outstanding! Saying that be prepared for a long wait, crowded and loud area if you choose to eat in the shop.

This place has something for everyone, and it is so unique. There’s specialty chocolates, AMAZING ice creams and sorbets, and specialty chocolate drinks. The mango sorbet is my personal favorite, It literally tastes like you are eating delicious, fresh mangos.

Kakawa Chocolate House is not to be missed. All their chocolate products are hand-made and not to be missed. They have 2 locations on Paseo de Peralta and Rufina Street. Pretty expensive but worth it.
