It's THE place to visit in Cuba if you want some Cuban chocolate. Be aware of long lines. You may also choose to dine in, then you go to the next door to line up to get seated.

The chocolate here is beautiful, and the place is incredibly crowded. I visited in summer, so I knew I couldn't take anything home, but I did enjoy the rum infused dark chocolate right there. It was very cheap for a few pieces, and incredibly crowded...More

As soon as you walk in, you are surrounded by cool air conditioning and the smell of rich chocolate. After a hot August day walking throughout Habana Vieja, this is very much welcomed. It is more so a shop than a museum. There are some...More

Worth the line! Nothing like a cold glass of chocolate in a hot day in La Habana. Usually has some lines, but the chocolate is really good.

No, it is not a museum. Just a few posters around the walls and some chocolate being mixed and then put into moulds. All the drinks are chocolate based and I thought good, made a change from alcohol and coffee.
