Omg, so good! I love good chocolate and this is exquisite. We tried both the regular and the Maya versions. Price is good. 33 pesos for plain and 37 for Maya.

“Best chocolate cake!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in after our dinner for hot chocolate and coffee and not planning to eat dessert since we were full from dinner. However our 1 friend wanted something sweet so he ordered a piece of chocolate cake...it was so good we needed to order another :)

“Best coffee in PDC”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

The best cafe cortado in PDC.
After drinking very very bad espresso/macchiato/cortado in most of the restaurants in town, it's a joy to get the real stuff here, good machines, tasty roast, clever baristas, just good coffy. LOVE IT.

“I'm addicted!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Best coffee in Playa. If you love coffee, mousse, authentic local chocolate and a local vibe, this is the place. Forget what you drink at home- go Mexican. Good wifi, griendly folks, you can't go wrong.
