Need a treat? A sip of luxury? Forget Starbucks and head here for a unique experience. You'll be supporting a small business(that also supports other small businesses) and taste some of the best chocolate in the region. We sampled the lightly spiced cinnamon chocolate which...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

Not everyone wants their hot chocolate to be overly sweet. At Cacao, one has the option of chocolatey hot chocolate, spiced hot chocolate, or regular hot chocolate. This was a highlight of our visit to Portland.

I'm not a hot chocolate drinker, but this Macchiato (2 espresso shots + hot chocolate foam) was a rich and delicious drink unlike anything I've ever had. Tucked into the corner of the Heathman hotel, this tiny hot chocolate/coffee bar offers an extensive selection of...More
