This is a tiny shop that is easy to overlook. The chocolate is great and the chocolate cigars make fun gifts. The downside, like most places in Havana, is a large tempting menu with only a few items available.

This is a place for real chocolate fans. You can have a chocolate milk shake or hot chocolate and there are chocolates for sale, so it's good for a short stop if you're in the area.

This is a great little place to see chocolate related objects and to enjoy a cup of hot liquid chocolate with some home made chocolate truffles as an accompaniment. Prices are really good too.

Don't be fooled by the name. It's not a museum, it's just a chocolate cafe. When we were there, half the items on the menu were unavailable and to be honest, the chocolate was disappointing. However, it's air-conditioned, and a nice change from the local fare and especially if you have kids. Get the frozen chocolate drink for $1 and... More

I had heard about this Chocolate shop from people in Cuban and a Cuban American friend. When we stopped there, the line was insane! Once we finally got inside, they only had about five chocolates to choose from - all the others were sold out. They also didn't have any boxes of chocolate to buy...this appeared to be the norm....

Mouthwatering appeared the idea of a chocolate museum. Even more was the local shop where you can assmble various types of chocolate. To admit, do not expect to much as ingredients still seem to be short in post Castro times.

Located in the old Havana, near to all other attractions. Very nice of hot chocolate with sprinkle of cardamom. Good price. Prepare to have long queue in front of the door..

This place is a gem for a chocolate fix. it has a small takeout place and very good high quality chocolate and is ALWAYS busy There is little cafe for hot chocolate and is an excellent choice for a midday break for a snack. Expensive by cuban standards but cheap by american standards for Godiva quality (actually better)
