Anyway, we were in for quite the afternoon when we headed down to Cacao, which has the best hot chocolate and macarons in the area; or in all of Atlanta, I should say. We ended up sitting and chatting by their Christmas tree for a good bit before doing a little bit of last minute Christmas-shopping.
The shop itself really is quite homey. I could sit there all afternoon and not even notice the time pass! Well, as long as there's a constant supply of macarons and chocolate...
I had rosewater and vanilla macarons, while my sister had chocolate and vanilla. I always thought a rosewater macaron would taste weird, but as it turns out, they're delicious! They use a chocolate filling, which makes for a really interesting taste when put with the rosewater flavor of the macaron.
The hot chocolate was also the best hot chocolate I've ever had. Ever. Each sip had a different taste. Not kidding.
This picture really doesn't do the tree justice, but let me tell you, it was quite the adorable tree. It really did make for the perfect setting for a winter outing.
And of course, even the tiniest details of their window displays were perfect. I wish I had captured a picture of the entire window, but you'll have to trust me that it was great.
If you're ever in Atlanta or near Virginia Highlands, do yourself a favor and go to Cacao.
