One of my favourite place to meet for coffee, because it is not like all the other options. And the coffee is excellent.

We always enjoy the dark hot chocolate here at least once each trip. Today, being cool and rainy, the stop was very enjoyable as we sat inside sipping and watching the world go by. A small chocolate bar is served with every cup. Delicious.

Mink has a delicious and unique selection of chocolates. Best of all though is their hot chocolate, styled along Mexican hot chocolate. Grab a cup, even on a hot day, and sit at one of the outside tables in the plaza. Life doesn't get better.
