Although it is not a restaurant I have put it in this section because it seems an interesting place for chocolate lovers if they want to take one while walking through Old Havana and want to refresh in it, since it has quite high refrigeration and always Thank you for the warmth you do on the street.
It is not a museum proper, you can see something of the billing process of this product, but it is rather a place to have a chocolate or buy figurines or chocolate bars.
The Chocolate Museum is located between the streets Amargura and Mercaderes in Old Havana.
There is a corner, and in this, there is a large green double cross of cedar varnished in green, name by which is also known, “The House of the Green Cross”.
This Cross marks one of the stations of the Via Crucis that took place every Holy Friday.
On its walls you can see texts with the history of chocolate and posters from different eras. You can know the history of chocolate from its cultivation to its commercialization.
It also has cabinets with a collection of porcelain chocolate cups from different countries.
On Tuesdays and Fridays, at 11 o’clock in the morning, chocolate is prepared as the Aztecs prepared it, with sweet pepper and nutmeg and shows how the chocolates are made by hand.
In their menu they have a glass of cold chocolate, a cup of traditional hot chocolate flavored with cinnamon and vanilla or azteca flavored with pepper and nutmeg, toast with butter, chocolates, tablets and chocolate figurines.
The cocoa comes from Baracoa, first city founded in Cuba and famous for this crop. Nice city that is worth visiting, although it is quite far from Havana, it is the easternmost city of Cuba.
Their prices are cheap, a cup of chocolate costs 0.55 cuc and the cold glass 1 cuc and they are accompanied by a chocolate or cookies. The pity is that they do not sell cocoa to go.
