“Must stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in here before continuing our road trip across the US. It was fantastic. 8 chocolate "elixirs" to choose from, and you can try each one, perfect! Amazing range of chocolates, truffles and brownies (for the road of course). Good stop for those with allergies, lots of gluten free. The owners were incredibly nice and helpful too. We also went to C.C Higgins. Kakawa was nicer and better priced FYI

“Don't Miss It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Past reviews have pretty much said it all. Near the entrance to the Canyon Road gallery area, this makes a great stop for a pick me up before or after surveying the amazing art on display in Santa Fe. We splurged and had the large sized (6 oz) hot chocolate and we were glad we did. Tempted to lick out the cups once we had finished the thick, silky blend. They use almond mike and coconut sugar in addition to a tremendously rich chocolate and flavors like chili or citrus, so it's unlike any other hot chocolate you're likely to have had. Their candies (we shared a caramel, chocolate, chili square) are delicious too. You can buy various flavor chocolate powders as well as other items to take out. A great excuse to go back!

“Didn't realize they had ice cream!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Most of the reviews focus on the chocolate and the hot chocolate in demitasse cups. However, it was pretty warm when we got there and guess what! They had ice cream. It was really delicious. So welcome after walking around in the afternoon. Well worth the walk though!

“Amazing CHOCOLATE Treats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Went to visit the chocolate house today. It is not a big place, but like a boutique tea house. I'm not a "chocolate" person, but have to admit the chocolate treats (drinks and sweets) are pretty amazing. Incredibly indulgent and tasty smooth. The owner is very gracious, hospitable and friendly, and overall a very pleasant experience, offering a nice break for the day. If you like sweets and chocolates, this is the place for you
