The store owner couple are very friendly and courteous. Their chocolate offerings are just phenomenal. You definitely need to try their hot chocolate made from 100% black chocolate bar and milk - best treat one can ask for in a cold, rainy night in Quito.

Unfortunately we were only able to go one time. In their cafe, we had the most amazing hot chocolate - rich, chocolatey, and best of all, you could sweeten to your taste. We also had some yummy savory snacks.
