My advice to to get the flight of drinking chocolate. Each cup was so delicious in its own way and tastes exactly how as described! My friend and I savored the three two ounce cups for over 15 minutes. It's one of those things you take a small sip, set it down, and enjoy all that happens with your senses. They have a very interesting selection of chocolates in the store. It is one of the few places I have seen a 100% cacao bar that wasn't baking chocolate. Some of the more odd/interesting finds for the truly adventurous include a foie gras chocolate bar...

The guy helping us was super friendly and they let you sample just about any of the bars! We both sampled two different items and ended up buying them. The chocolate is pricey but it is good quality. Again, the flight of drinking chocolate - Do it! It's the kind of place where you begin thinking about when you can come back and who you can bring before you walk out the door!

We took a long walk to get to Cacao, and we had the flight of drinking chocolates as a reward! Amazing flavors and many, many kids of chocolate to take home. A must for chocolate lovers, and a unique experience.

The place is tiny but HUGE in terms of selection and flavor. If you can't find the chocolate of your dreams here, go back to sleep. The hand made confections from a variety of sources are both beautiful and tasty. The cooking chocolates are the best in town. AND the caramels (salted? chili? YES!) will make your heart sing.

I did the epicurean tour and thus was one of the stupid. It's inside Heathman hotel and it's a cute little shop. A nice place to go for hot cup of chocolate when it's cold and rainy outside. Must try!!

Located in the Heathman's lobby Cacao has a great selection of chocolates, some locally produced, as well as inviting hot chocolate and coffee.
