The combination of chai spices with the Cocoa West Signature hot chocolate blend should not be missed. The chai is subtle, but perfect addition to the chocolate. The Cocoa Express is also very good, but a lot of caffeine between the chocolate and espresso shot.

Went at the end of the day. One lady was accommodating and the other wanted to close up and go home . Drinks were expensive and not to my wife or my liking .

You can smell the chocolate long before you can see it. Every season brings new delights and flavors. Hot Chocolate in winter, and treats for each occasion. Or not occasion....just because! You will never be disappointed...I promise

Stopped in while shopping. Many cafes have hot chocolate but the inspired flavours here were awesome. Kids grabbed a poblano hot chocolate (Mexican heat) and a classic milk chocolate. I had the mocha, looking forward to going back and trying the chocolates.

We stopped by here to try the cocoa and warm up as it was really cold outside. I ordered a cup of the Seville cocoa with soy milk. Wow, it was really good. The cocoa was rich and thick enough, not sweet, which is how...More
