The chocolate is very low quality and is kept in a refrigerator. With two other high quality chocolate shops in town it is not worth the high prices that that are charged at this place. The woman owner is rude and overbearing. It is not...More

Stopped in for a cup of much needed coffee while walking the streets of Panajachel. We had a sample of the chocolates, they were ok not out of the world. We did have a great cup of Atitlan coffee.

Hot chocolate with Mayan chilli was what I ordered... However a very water down version powdered chocolate with of a touch of chilli was provided. Not worth the 25q. Extremely over priced! Can only be improved with more chocolate and milk instead of water. Hold...More

I picked up some chocolate and some chocolate "tea" at this store. First off it is a lovely store, very clean and well presented. The gentleman who served me was helpful and not pushy. The chocolate was excellent and while it is a small bar...More

This shop has great choco goodies, if you don't mind paying the bill. Great taste and lots of options, but you can buy a meal or lots of local sweet things for the cost of a candy.

The coffee was overpriced, weak and nothing special at all and the owner became aggressive and unreasonable when my son accidentally broke a glass. She charged a fortune for it, claiming it came from Guatemala City though we soon found them sold cheaply nearby. My...More
