Cacao & Cardamom

When Annie Rupani was studying for her law school admission exam, she took breaks by reading about chocolate. Several months after taking the test, she still had chocolate on her mind and traveled to Malaysia where she attended a week-long chocolatier course. After she returned home, Cacao & Cardamom was born. This renowned shop has been featured in numerous publications such as USA Today Travel and the Houston Chronicle. Visitors can enjoy several hot chocolate choices including classic dark, spicy Mexican, and Signature C&C.


With a cozy atmosphere, it’s no wonder that the Agora is a popular meeting place. It offers an Old World feel, and visitors can choose their favorite songs from the jukebox or read an array of publications such as The New York Times. Further, the Agora has been voted the “Best Coffeehouse” by the Houston Press and the hot chocolate is topped with thick, sweet cream.


Hugo’s offers authentic Mexican cuisine by award-winning chef Hugo Ortega. It’s nestled in the Montrose neighborhood and is found inside a 1925 building. The dining area features chic contemporary elements as well as the inviting traditional elements of old Mexico. Indeed, guests always receive attentive service. Be sure to try the Mexican hot chocolate, served with churros for dipping.
