Our annual trip to Santa Fe wouldn't be complete without a trip to the KCH. The staffers are very helpful in helping you select the drinking chocolate that will please you most. The desserts are works of culinary art. This place is always packed....but service is efficient and friendly. A must-stop!

If you don't like hot chocolate, don't go. Beyond that, this place is a gem and a 5 every day, every year. What a unique experience...let's go in and pick the best of a bunch of great hot chocolates. Great flavor combinations. Yes, there were some I didn't care for, and several that I loved. The Chili hot chocolate was... More

Ice cream is wonderful, but it comes out of the freezer and is really hard. Ask them to microwave it for a couple of seconds. Can't wait for it to melt on it's on time. Bought a piece of the bourbon pecan chocolate perfection.

We stopped by Kakawa on the recommendation of our son and are so glad that we did. Staff were so friendly and helpful. We were encouraged to try several chocolate elixir offerings before ordering and were very pleased with our choices. Kakawa also sells their products to make at home. We are looking forward to trying those that we purchased.... More

If you are a chocolate lover, you definitely need to go to this place. The pralines with goat cheese are just fabulous and the different (hot) chocolate "cups" have many super interesting flavours (e.g. with rosewater) and are really thick...I have great chocolate in Europe, but what Kakawa has to offer is something really special...

We had the salted caramel ice cream and sea salt caramel chocolate. It was delicious. We would have tried something else but it was really busy and crowded. I would go again and try s chocolate drink. We played it safe. They let you sample so you could get something you like.

Tip one. Kakawa makes one of the best chocolate milkshakes in the Northern Hemisphere. Try it you won't be dissapointed. Tip two. They make a variety of chocolate elixers (ground chocolate mixes) that are well worth exploring. But the tip is to buy the 1666 Italian Citrus Elixir and add a spoonful to your morning or afternoon brew. It will... More

Definitely stop in for some chocolate if you're in the area! The American chocolate elixir was fabulous! Bought some to make at home! The brownies are out of this world, as well -- not too sweet, perfect consistency. Totally yum!

Those are just one example of the great chocolates available at this store. They also have numerous hot chocolates to sample. Not too sweet and utterly delicious!

After a fun filled and very active day of mountain biking or hiking or art galleries and museums, where to go to just chill and chat over the best icy iced mocha in the world and not-to-be-outdone scrumptious champagne chocolate truffles? I went on TripAdvisor and found Kawaka which had to be one of my most favorite spots to go... More
