I live in PDC and used to come to ah cacao every time. Tonight, a few minutes ago, I came with a friends and sat at an unoccupied table outside (ah cacao 5th with 38 street). No one there, nothing in the table that indicated...it was occupied, we left our stuff there and then we went inside to order, an employee told us we should move to another table because a foreign man already decided to sit in there..... aha and we’re was he then? You can’t say: oh I already set my sight into that spot/place/chair/table, so it’s mine. 🙄 they employees moved us, that sucks!More

I bought a chocolate drink and brownie here regularly because it’s so good! They have different kind of chocolate flavors, which you can also buy as a bar. You can really taste the rich flavor of chocolate in their brownies! The staff is very friendly.

I visited on July 22 at 6:33 PM. I ordered the Choc Maya Frio Medium , 14 oz. for 57 pesos. Wifi is included and the password is on your receipt. Great spot for people watching which faces Quinta Alegria Mall plaza. Very busy area....Coffee for take home is fair trade but expensive.More

Higher quality, more exotic menu, and incredibly inexpensive compared to that American Starbucks monster. Cakes, Mayan chocolate, ice cream, lattes, frappes, fruit smoothies, and even tamales! They sell products bottled and sealed if you'd like to take them home with you too

We visited this bar after watching the street entertainers and a parade, the kids with us really liked their chocolate drinks and the atmosphere was very friendly. Would like to go back at a quieter time to see what else is on offer.
