Definitely worth a stop and visit. If you can take one of their classes, even better. We had a wonderful time learning about chocolate making and tasting. Even if you can't take a class, it is worth the stop for samples and education on cacao. Nice people, but a small shop/museum. special thanks to Elizabeth for her hospitality and wonderful conversations.

We went here on the end of the free walking tour and yes it is mostly free. You are told about cocoa beans for a short while and invited to make chocolate. You are invited to sample cocoa tea, liquer and taste the beans. They make their money on selling goods though.

I would not recommend buying anything. The chocolate is average and the brownies are basically cheap cakes.

Average time here, would not go again.

A nice low key informative place with a friendly staff who are ready, and very willing, to answer questions and share information. And it's FREE including some samples!

But when you leave go around the corner to the shop and buy some chocolate.

Well worth a visit if only to find out the history of chocolate and try the free samples!
Not so sure the chocolate is as nice as Cadburys :0)
