kakao - South-Lake Union: Café Drinks and Chocolate at kakao (Up to 62% Off). Two Options Available.

Like crayons, chocolate comes in many varieties and tastes better when unwrapped before consuming. Taste a spectrum of sweetness with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $5 for $10 worth of café drinks and chocolate
  • $16 for eight 12-ounce café drinks (up to a $4.27 value each) and one chocolate bar (up to a $7.50 value; up to a $41.66 total value)

The menu includes espresso drawn from Seattle-roasted Herkimer coffee beans ($1.95), cardamom hot chocolate ($2.09+), london fogs with earl grey tea, steamed milk, and vanilla ($2.64+), and salted-caramel hot chocolate ($2.42+). Hours are Monday–Friday, 7:30 a.m.–6 p.m.


Named for the Hungarian word for chocolate in what one UPC Times writer calls “a nod to the Slavic history of the neighborhood,” kakao serves café drinks with a local bent and craft chocolate bars from chocolate makers such as Dandelion, Dick Taylor, and Lillie Belle. Baristas draw rich espresso from locally roasted Herkimer coffee beans and steep loose-leaf teas from Miro Tea. They also serve mochas and Ghirardelli and Valrhona hot chocolates—in flavors such as salted caramel or cardamom—from machines that swirl the drinks throughout the day, keeping them ready to pour. Conveniently, kakao complements its warm beverages with pastries from Le Panier and Macrina Bakery.

High ceilings with exposed beams hint at kakao’s warehouse past, but the space's soft track lighting and carefully selected furniture preclude the temptation to drop off a shipment of 10,000 fur coats for storage. Free WiFi also keeps patrons connected to the buzz of the Internet throughout visits.
