“Best Iced Latte”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

I miss this place so much. I got my daily coffee fix from Ah Cacao, the barista's were so wonderful and they became a friendly face towards the end of the trip. They have a great turkey and cheese croissant that I also miss. Can't wait to visit again!

“Just delicious”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

My wife and I went there because of good recommendations at Trip Advisor about the brownie. Well, It is really good, and the best of all was the very nice people that work there, like Cecilia and Ambar. Thanks for your smiles. Gustavo and Ana (Brazil)

“Great choco cake!”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

Stopped by based on user reviews and was not disappointed. The choco cake was moist and delicious. The belly was too full for their other goodies but if they are as good as the cake then I would have loved to try them all. Have a light dinner on 5th ave and then head over here for sme treats!

“Chocolate Lovers Dream!!”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Buy some cocoa to bring home. Your friends will be talking about your amazing brownies for months!!! The Choclate Ice cream hits the spot on a hot day and it's NOT a rip off like some of the big chains (H&D) on Ave 5.
