I'm not a hot chocolate drinker, but this Macchiato (2 espresso shots + hot chocolate foam) was a rich and delicious drink unlike anything I've ever had. Tucked into the corner of the Heathman hotel, this tiny hot chocolate/coffee bar offers an extensive selection of chocolates, including Buddhist icons made of chocolate. We bought a bar for every friend and family member, some from Vietnam, France and Canada. Also available, Portland made salt. Lovely young ladies to wrap your gifts. Tip them well!

My wife and I went here on our food tour. They explained the different chocolate blends and let us try drinking chocolate. We liked it so much that we bought some to take home. If you would like something sweet, the chocolate coated figs are yummy.

We love this place and are happy it has stayed in business over the years for our visits. We like it simply for the drinking chocolate -- try the spicy. A dairy-free hot chocolate is also available, and it's very good. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. Note this boutique has two locations in Portland with different hours.

Stopped here as part of a foodie tour. Very disappointing and the chocolate is way over priced. Got some hot cocoa to drink. Proprietor talked a lot but was not impressive.

A lovely, hidden chocolate shop with wonderful selection of drinking chocolate. Highly recommend the European style chocolate... I recommend getting a shot from each flavor, at a reasonable $2 per shot. The iced drinks are well done.
Plenty of unusual chocolates as well, but priced accordingly.
