Visited Cacao during a food tour. Portland folks are very serious about their chocolate. Cacao has very high quality chocolate. We heard a talk about different chocolates and tasted some samples. If you are a fine chocolate lover, this is the store for you.

Great place to shop for amazing local chocolates, and a cozy place to hunker down and chat over hot beverages. Cool space and friendly service -- a destination for sure!

This store focuses on hot chocholate and chocholate bars from around the world. Coffee available as well. The hot chocholate comes in several flavors, best seemed to be the classical. Bars range up to 100% cocoa beans.
