Delicious ice cold Frappes.

Defiantly would recommend.

Centrally located. Great for your coffee stop in the morning

Not over priced.
Wait is average.

We visited the 5th Ave and Calle 30 location last week with our family of five - us and three kids, aged 12, 8 and 5. Even though it was sweltering (for us), we chose to stop here because we'd heard great things. There is no option to sit in an air-conditioned interior, so be aware of that. The patio is a bumpy, lumpy affair and we had a tough time getting some of our chairs to slide into position, but once we were comfortable, it was great. The service was quick and attentive. We ordered cold drinks - chilled chai latte, fruit smoothies and a vanilla milkshake, and I also ordered an espresso. The drinks are priced at roughly Starbucks pricing, which is fair considering they are hand-made and it's a far less franchise-type experience. We liked the drinks, the patio atmosphere and the service. You can buy ice cream, chocolates and coffee beans to go as well.

Thank you for visiting Ah Cacao and taking time to write a review.

Just for your reference we have two other locations in Playa del Carmen, both of which have air conditioned areas (and flat floors!). The addresses are:
- 5th Avenue with Constituyentes Avenue
- 5th Avenue between 38th and 40th street

We look forward to your visit!
