Let me be succinct. If I ever returned to Portland, it would be to return to Cacao. And that's the truth. This little chocolate place is heaven, and the drinking chocolate is the way to go. So rich, so satisfying, and just so good. Truly,...More

We went to Cacao as part of a food tour and really enjoyed our experience. We got a brief history and education about cocoa and then we got to try quite a few samples. Delicious. Quite an assortment to purchase from powders to bars to...More

As soon as I heard “drinking chocolate” I knew I would be visiting Cacao. The barista recommended the drinking flight, which included a dark drinking chocolate, one with cinnamon, and one with spices. They are each served in an espresso cup of about 2 ounces....More

We left our hotel to track down some coffee, and Cacao happened to be a few blocks away. We entered the cutest little chocolate shop, and we both ordered the espresso shot floated on drinking chocolate. OH MY GOODNESS. This will forever put all other...More

We love this place and are happy it has stayed in business over the years for our visits. We like it simply for the drinking chocolate -- try the spicy. A dairy-free hot chocolate is also available, and it's very good. The staff is helpful...More

Stopped here as part of a foodie tour. Very disappointing and the chocolate is way over priced. Got some hot cocoa to drink. Proprietor talked a lot but was not impressive.

A lovely, hidden chocolate shop with wonderful selection of drinking chocolate. Highly recommend the European style chocolate... I recommend getting a shot from each flavor, at a reasonable $2 per shot. The iced drinks are well done. Plenty of unusual chocolates as well, but priced...More
