Great place fr a snack!

We enjoyed delicious (and not sweet) hot chocolate and a long chat with the owner. Great snacks, chocolate, and conversation on La Ronda.

We stopped in for some hot chocolate and were pleasantly surprised to find that not only was their chocolate great but they also had delicious food, canezalo and gelato as well! A very sweet, English speaking couple ran the shop and made sure the whole experience was wonderful!

For those who appreciate good chocolate. Not the commercial brands found in supermarkets, mini markets and on the streets sold on every corner. This place is chocolate heaven. With an impressive line up of organic, Ecuadorean, cocao, milk, semi dark and our favourite 100% cocao just to name a few. They also have cakes, ice cream, coffee, tea and the... More

This place...I can't even begin to describe how amazing the gelato. The white chocolate is so delicious, the mint melts in your mouth and the beer will get you ice cream wasted. I cry myself to sleep every night because I am no longer in Quito to eat this gelato.

The store owner couple are very friendly and courteous. Their chocolate offerings are just phenomenal. You definitely need to try their hot chocolate made from 100% black chocolate bar and milk - best treat one can ask for in a cold, rainy night in Quito.

Chocolate is not too sweet and not too buttery. We tried the spiced chocolate drink , the chocolate and orange ice-cream in a dark chocolate chocolate cup. Yes the cup and spoon is made from dark chocolate. Totally inspired. And got multiple pieces of dark chocolate. If you are a chocoholic, you just died and went to heaven.

This is THE place to go for chocolate -- hot chocolate, truffles, "tree to bar" organic chocolate bars and more. We had three kinds of hot chocolate: one with ginger, one with chili peppers and the "especial," with fresh, whipped egg (like egg nog). There are also all kinds of coffee and tea, gifts and textiles. Don't miss this wonderful... More

Unfortunately we were only able to go one time. In their cafe, we had the most amazing hot chocolate - rich, chocolatey, and best of all, you could sweeten to your taste. We also had some yummy savory snacks.

I've eated gelato all over Italy and this place is as good as the best of them. In addition they have hand made chocolates, excellent pastries and coffees. They really know what they're doing! The mora (something like a blackberry but with a tang to it) is made into a wonderful pie in addition to more traditional Euro-centric desserts. If... More

I chanced upon this chocolateria on my last day in Quito and I only wish I had discovered if earlier. Amazing chocolates and their cakes are to die for. Don't pass up on it if you happen to be in the area.
