We’d be remiss if we didn’t include more than one chocolate-based option on this list. Cacao is a real treat (pun completely intended) for chocolate lovers. This shop specializes in Cacao in forms beyond that of traditional bars or bite-sized eats, though they also carry lots of those. Think hot chocolates, drinking chocolates, and baking chocolates.
