This little, unassuming place not far from the Plaza has justifiably deserved all the accolades it has received for its chocolate. I’m writing about the MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ice cream I had today. The major reason I’m writing this is that I saw no mention...of the ice cream on their website, which I don’t understand. BUT, you should run RIGHT NOW and get some. My husband had a chocolate whose flavor was of course, like no chocolate ice cream you’re likely to experience unless you come here. But my mint chip had chunks of wonderful dark chocolate that were incredible. It was a generous 6 ounce cup. I was SO SAD when I finished it!!!! I’ll be in Santa Fe 6 more days, more than enough time to build more memories!!!More

The staff was amazing and the Chocolate was even better. I sampled several types of drinking chocolates. They have chocolate that is made with coffee that really appealed to me! Definitely going back and I will make this a regular stop when I am in...town.More

My husband and I both tried a different drinking chocolate and we ordered a caramel brownie as well to share. The drinking chocolate is of course very rich and I'm glad I only got a 3 oz! The prices are a high, but the treats...are very good.More

Great chocolate candy and my husband really liked the mocha he ordered. The chocolate is definitely high quality and the staff member was so helpful and knowledgeable of the candies we purchased. Just a cool place to go.

We saw the high reviews for this place and decided we needed to come! We both have a big sweet tooth! The employees were sweet. It’s a bit pricey but worth it for a once in a lifetime experience (or more splurging if you’re closer...to the area). I ordered a Kakawa American chocolate elixir and it was so decadent! I also got a red Chile caramel, a green Chile caramel, an Italian caramel and a mezcal chocolate. Haven’t tried them yet, but excited! Definitely make time to stop here if you’re in Santa Fe!More

Take the time to enjoy the ancient, smooth, rich flavors here. The classic chocolate malt with medium malt and whipped cream is fantastic & worth every cent at $6.50. We sampled a few hot chocolate elixirs and in-house made chocolates - everything is superb! If...you like chocolate then purpose to make this stop!More

We opted for a little decadence during our Santa Fe escape. We found this highly recommended place and waited in line to get it. Definitely worth the wait! We tried the Mayan hot chocolate (it had a bit of a kick!) and also tried the...peanut butter brownies which were heaven on earth. You gotta give it a try if you’re in Santa Fe. The staff were also excellent!More

First place I visited when I landed it Santa Fe. It does not disappoint. The smell, the atmosphere and the staff. You are in for a treat. Sip a hot chocolate while enjoying their amazing truffles.

While afoot near the capitol, the courthouse, or the square, stop in to the Kakawa Chocolate house for a cup of excellent cocao.

A coworker who lived in SF told us to visit and we are sure glad she did! Huge selection of chocolates, elixirs and caramels to choose from. We ordered 2 brownies, 3 gift boxes and picked up 2 varieties of elixirs. It came to about...$130 which is pricey but so worth it! Their best seller is the goat cheese and sage...which I tried and thought was terrific. The chocolate dipped oranges are to die for as is the caramel top hats.More
