Walked half an hour in the rain to this place. Well worth it. Hot chocolate as it should be....liquid Chocolate...Should call it Chocolate ganache in a cup....Super thick made from cream, milk and a lot of Chocolate. Only for the serious Chocolate drinkers.

Treated to a delicious cake pop from Holy Cacao on a last stop on our Austin Detours tour. Wish we had time to get other food at this Trailer Park food court.

This is hands down the best in the city. Make sure to ask the difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is thicker and a bit more dark in flavor. Sooooo good!

Got a coffee here when getting breakfast tacos at Torchy's next door. IT WAS INCREDIBLE!! Would definitely go out of my way if ever in Austin again to stop in for a brew. Nothing against Starbucks, but this is so much better. Very distinctive chocolate flavour, but not enough to overpower the rich coffee taste

Stopped here for cake pops during a tour of Austin. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake pops were so delicious! We only got 1 on the tour, but then went back for several more. Also, the cake shake was heavenly! Can't wait to go back next time we are in Austin!

If you like chocolate just go and get one of their frozen hot chocolates. Highly decadent but thoroughly delicious. We'll be back. Like, tomorrow.

The cake pops were amazing, the frozen hot chocolate was the kids favorite! Not a huge fan of the cake shakes, maybe if they were colder.

I swung by here after Home Slice for a sweet treat. Based on the reviews, I'd say I was a bit disappointed, but it was good. The cake pop is too pricey ($3) for it's deliciousness, but the cake was moist. I got the chocolate peanut butter, but wish I had gone either chocolate or wedding cake (the options were... More
