It's a local hangout with Wifi. Good selection of drinks. Their website includes recipes to include their delicious chocolate, and they sell the beautifully carved molinillos that are used to make authentic Mexican hot chocolate.

Very friendly and helpful shop. They offer samples of their chocolates and the chocolate bars and other items we bought turned out to be perfect souvenirs. Try the chocolate with spices and chile.
