The concept is a floral shop and chocolate shop with a luxury lounge area to relax and enjoy some of the simple pleasures: Costa Rican chocolate, nature and flowers.

Chocolate is prepared daily from scratch and with love, Sicilian-style. Fresh shipments of flowers are received every Thursday. Mango flowers, mini key lime pies, cheesecakes, brownies, chocolate bananas and watermelon on a stick (dipped in chocolate) are just a few of specialties. Coffee at the Cacao Lounge is special in that it is from Marianna’s friend Belkis Young’s Atenas Coffee Farm, Siempre Joven. The shop also caters special parties and events.
