  • On Kakawa's website, their mission is to "reintroduce you to chocolate", and they did that and then some! The shop is adorable, simple, clean and inviting. The woman at the counter was so patient with...  more »

  • We love chocolate and this is a one-of-a-kind Santa Fe experience with chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. Most of it dark. Delightful for young and old alike. Ample sampling.Take home your favorite mix ($15). Kakawa provides a "chocolate drinking experience" and it's a good one. A bit like the hot chocolate you grew up, Kakawa's kitchen cooks up a rich international menu of flavors from spicy to sweet. Quaint interior atmosphere resembles a candy store in the country. Chocolate pieces ($3.50 each) as good or better than famous See's Candies. Kakawa is a 5-Star experience for both locals and visitors and it has its own regular customers.
  • This is review is so very overdue! The chocolate is great. The people and service are great. I had the chance to stop by during a student conference a couple of months back, and I can honestly say it was one of the highlights of visiting Santa Fe. The owner gave us a tour of his factory, and even let us sample some of his top chocolate blends. He also told us about the history of chocolate and of each product of his store. You can really tell that they put a lot of love and care towards their chocolate. Overall, it was a very delicious experience. p.s The brownies are to die for!
  • Amazing chocolates, ice cream, & milkshakes! They offer several flavors of drinking chocolates and the selection changes daily. They even have dairy-free options. Yes, it is a little pricey, but worth it to try.
  • A must try in Santa Fe. The chocolate drinking elixirs are amazing! The staff is super friendly and helpful in choosing an elixir. If you've never been, they offer samples. Great selection of chocolates and treats to enjoy while sipping your hot chocolate. The location is great; close to the Roundhouse in a comfortable setting.
  • We had a great time visiting this lovely little chocolate house. The Baristas if that's what you call a chocolate server were knowledgeable helpful and graciously gave samples to every flavor available. Took her five-year-old I wasn't sure we would find anything there for him and we certainly did we were all delighted with their choices organic ice cream homemade chocolate chip cookies, 100% chocolate with spices! Wow!
