Casa del Cacao and the chocolate brand Soleil are owned by Cedric, from Belgium. The workshop and café are located right in the centre of San José. A workshop + hot drink + your own chocolate bar costs only $12, which is a bargain, really.
Casa del Cacao boasts a menu full of chocolaty drinks, both hot and cold. These can be accompanied by a piece of delightful chocolate (from their own brand, called Soleil), a Caribbean plate (the chef is from the Caribbean side of Costa Rica!) or one of the heavenly crêpes.
