Wandered over from Powells Books to find a vegan treat ...and this place is perfect for a Sunday vegan almond milk hot chocolate and a new book reading spot.

If you eat at any downtown restaurant near Powell's, skip their dessert and come here for chocolates. You can get drinks (including their sampler of 3 warm chocolates) and buy chocolate stash that is out of this world. Few chocolatiers with this array of chocolates from everywhere.

I loved the drinkable chocolate flight....but ask for recommendation on the sequence, since the Spicy has a lingering taste profile. I loved it so much I came back two days later (just before heading to the airport) for another medium size of the Rivoli drinkable chocolate.

This place was so fun. There were the most beautiful chocolates of all different kinds and varieties. Good place for gifts. They had gold leaf chocolates that looked like milagros. The drinking chocolate is to die for. Never had anything like it. Felt like I was in the movie "Chocolat"

We stopped for dessert, they offer 3 kinds of drinking chocolate in 3 sizes. we went for medium size which was perfect as it's very rich. We had one dark and one milk, both were excellent!

Fun variety of chocolates from all over. Found some good local chocolates with interesting flavors. Tried a shot of their drinking chocolate which was smooth and not too sweet. Medium thickness which was nice as it was creamier than regular hot chocolate. Will be back to try some of the other flavors and different drinking chocolates.
