You could drive by and miss the place if it isn't in your GPS, but it is definitely worth finding. They have a variety of Elixirs/Hot Chocolate drinks everyday and the menu rotates. I tried a couple of the elixirs and they were good, and...More

The parking is limited and full of pot holes here, but worth the stop anyway. They do a great job of making various blends of hot chocolate for drinking or take away. To our surprise they also make regular candy chocolates. Some very unique ones,...More

I love the chocolate here, but I also love the samples of sipping chocolates, the atmosphere, the pleasant owner and staff, the location, and the packets of their chocolate that I can take home!

Living in Santa Fe, I've been to Kakawa many times. It's a must stop whenever we have visitors. The chocolate drinks are yummy and they let you try them before purchasing. It's a one-of-a- kind place with excellent service.
