“Crave..Ah Cacao”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Chocolate ice cream is to die for..this year I indulged in Spicy Mayan Chocolate ice cream and ahhhh Cacao! It was delicious. Purchased coffee (for home) and coco for baking at home. This place is an amazing value and super delicious. There is are many BIG ice cream chains on 5th..but, branch out and try Ah Cacao..you won't regret it..I promise!

“Starbucks would go out of business if this makes it to the USA”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Ah Cacao is amazing. The coffee is unbelievably good. I had the Mayan chocolate, the Mocha, cafe con leche and all amazing. If you are a chocolate addict try the Mayan hot chocolate. It's like melted chocolate in a cup and you will be able to jog 10 miles like nothing (or any other activity). I also had the elote cake. It has the texture and appearance of a cheesecake but it is made out of corn. I cannot tell you how good it is. You must try it. It is unlike anything else you have tasted. This is my stop for flawless coffee in Playa. This is expensive by Mexican standards but the equivalent of Half the price of Starbucks but a zillion times better in quality. Two thumbs up for this place.

“Better than Starbucks....”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Not kidding..... I am a coffee addict... A chocoholic... And this place is simply superb.
Americano coffee was delicious and fresh.
Chocolate cake was moist and velvety, and the staff are amazing!
Only one drawback... I live in the US, and it's in Playa! Lol
Make sure you stop!

“Willy Wonka Eat Your Heart Out”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Best hot chocolate ever. Many chocolate types to buy, very sweet staff. You got to sit and watch people from the little table. Taxis right near by. Also check out the amber store next door.
