Wonderful chocolate treats, and drinking chocolates. My favorite is the unsweetened dark chocolate Zapoteca with ship cream and chocolate nibs. YUM!

The sipping chocolate is divine and the caramels, particularly the lavender, are a must. If you want to sample the various sipping chocolate, they are accommodating and the lines move quickly. Don't miss out when in Santa Fe.

A fun place to stop, with gracious and knowledgeable service. Do try that Aztec ice cream, the perfect balance of dark chocolate and chili—hot meets cold. It’s a craveable flavor!

From the moment we walked in they were feeding us delicious tasters. The folks here really are incredible, so patient as we tried many samples to settle on one Aztec spice and another chai spice drinking chocolate. We also had to try one of their...More
