Went there almost every day to restock for the day's hiking! I like my chocolate simple and pure, and they offered several options, all delicious.

Pretty good coffee, but expensive. The tabling outside was very cute but you have to clean up after the people who sat down before you. No locals were at this cafe, only tourists. The chocolate piece I had was 1.50 soles and smooth.

A lovely afternoon activity. Adrian was engaging, knowledgable, entertaining and funny. Our group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed this experience, we learnt a lot, tasted a lot, and made a lot. Definitely recommend! Do this! You will not be disappointed!

This chocolate making class was an amazing experience and made me appreciate what real chocolate and white chocolate actually takes like. Adrian has an infectious personality and his knowledge and teaching abilities were unbelievable. This was one of my favourite activities while in South America.

Had coffee and hot chocolate stop in this upstairs restaurant and what an experience. The seating ares in the courtyard provide a comfortable and relaxing environment and a sun trap. Good coffee and chocolate served by friendly staff. Will return. Highly recommended.

I tried two types of coffee in this place and was satisfied both times. Also the atmosphere is nice. I was sitting there when there was a chocolate class, haven't done it but it was sounded interesting.
