I love to stop here for delicious hand-crafted dark chocolate and elixirs, a must after the Christmas Eve Farolito walk, Valentine's Day and any other day when you are craving wonderful chocolate. The staff is always friendly and helpful, providing a sample upon request. Although a small, quaint house, you'll eventually find a seat if you are patient.

What a find! We were promptly given samples of hot chocolate of the day. We each got drinks and they were fantastic. Also bought several chocolates for the road. Will be coming back.

Stopped by here while spending the day in Santa Fe. I loved sampling some of their drinking chocolates which were so delicious! If you love chocolate, this is a mandatory stop! They also sell truffles, brownies, cakes and various chocolate candies.

My husband and I stopped in to get a sweet something one afternoon on a recent visit to Santa Fe. I had read good things about this place on trip advisor, and we were not disappointed! To say they have delicious hot chocolate is an understatement. The spices and flavors in the various hot chocolates take them to the next... More

A rustically furnished old adobe houses this business. They sell chocolate candies and have a daily menu describing different hot chocolate drinks made from different base chocolates. They let you sample the drink options. They also sell cards and small artistic things that are placed around decoratively.

The people and the chocolate here are great. I'm a local and stop in fairly frequently when I want my chocolate fix. You can get a really rich American style hot chocolate, or if you're more adventurous, there are lots of other flavors, most of which have a little spice. They also sell chocolate candies and brownies which are decadently... More

My favorite ice cream place in Santa Fe was closed and I was happy to find this new favorite. This spotless and unusual chocolate store was just the break we needed on our girl's trip. We all had the spicy Aztec which was dark chocolate with chili pepper. Add a little whipped cream to sooth the bite and you will... More

We stopped by for a warm cup of chocolate after hiking for the afternoon. The staff was so friendly and helpful ... provided recommendations and allowed us to sample. My daughter and I decided on the American Elixir which is a combination of dark chocolate and almond milk. It was amazing and really hit the spot!!!

This is a top place to visit while in Santa Fe. As a local, I love stopping their for a warm cup of chocolate when it's cold out or for a perfect gift for friends and family. It's a great post-Canyon road stop! Note that this isn't really a restaurant, so it surprises me that it is listed as so.
