This place is my go to Cafe for doble espresso. They carry fresh squeezed OJ, make excellent cappuccino and other coffee's. Their ice cream is also excellent as is the service. Similar to Starbucks in some ways but much better coffee. Definitely try them out. You will be pleased!

Ah Cacao Chocolate Café is either a nice coffee house and a Chocolate shop. I've been there to buy some chocolate from Mexico as souvenir from my Mexican trip.

Went out with a local and loved it. The coffee was excellent the tea was well prepared and the chocolate is super great including all the brownies and things made with it. 10/10 will go many times more. Go here instead of Starbucks.

We hit everyone of these chocolate shops that we can find when we visit Cancun and Playa del Carmen!! Yum! The sipping chocolate and brownies are so good. On my last visit, I got a coffee with chocolate and caramelized goat milk! It is my new favorite!
