This place was great. Head came here twice because the chai tea was the best I've ever had. Also had a dark chocolate cake which was really delicious and moist. The workers are friendly and the prices are great. It's nice to sit here and watch with Avenue go by as you're sipping your coffee and eating your pastries. Hands... More

As the name says CHOCOLATE always tasty and fresh. The location at Constitutientes and Fifth Avenue could due with additional seating, it is normally hard to find a seat.

I didn't eat any snacky cakes or cheesy poofs so can't comment on those. I went to the 1 on 5th Ave and Calle 30. I enjoyed my jamocha frappe. Got them to go so can't comment on table service. Better quality than Starbucks, imho.

Great coffee/good service all at fair prices. The ice cream was not very good...stick with chocolate/coffees and tea. On a side note the seating is not very comfortable...

Not something to loose you head for it. The coffee and chocolate are okay, nothing extraordinary. A little too caloric, in my modest opinion. They do have a lot of organic products which is a nice touch to the place. The cocoa massage oil is a must have. If you are into a great coffee experience this wouldn't be my... More

Very good coffee and chocolate. You should try chocolate maya. Constituyentes almost at the corner with 5th ave. The other Ah Cacao in 5th ave. is not nearly as good.

I only stopped her once on this vacation. Usually my wife likes to stop here, but her feet are not so good and we stayed too far for her to walk. I stopped in with my brother in law and sister in law. I had a cup of coconut ice cream. Pretty good. My sister in law and brother in... More

We went several times during our trip and I must say I enjoyed the ambience and the coffee better than the Starbucks down 5th.
