Kakao in South Lake Union

Though we technically had Good Friday off, we all decided to hang out together as team, at a quieter local cafe. That choice was Kakao, an all-in-one venue, cafe, and chocolate store with minimal signage and an humble exterior. The comfortable seating invited us in, beautiful ballerinas graced the wall, eclectic chocolates on display drew us closer, and the extensive hot chocolate menu pretty much sealed the deal as we approach the counter. We sat next to the windows to maximize the beautiful sunshine, before heading to Queen Anne afterward!

A church uses the space on weekends and the backroom was open for Good Friday meditation!

Though not clear from this photo, there is a reservable meeting room in the back with framed glass whiteboards — Ikea hack or sheer awesomeness?

As an alternative to chocolate, my London Fog was equally sweet and satisfying.

Apple pie chocolate, anyone?
