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

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.
