  • Dandelion makes all their chocolate bars, from bean to bar, in the store. Try the single origin bars or indulge in a mug of excellent hot chocolate.

  • This place is amazing!! Try the European drinking chocolate + cake!
  • They also have tasty homemade marshmallows near the water and napkins!

  • San Francisco's Dandelion Chocolate is a MUST if you love chocolate. They also offer workshops where you can learn all there is to know about chocolate and even try your hand at making your own!
  • The Mission hot chocolate and home-made marshmallows are delicious and not too sweet! Also tried a roasted cacao bean.
  • Wish I could take a picture of the smells, great place to just sit and watch the work. The whole roasted beans are great, the spicy hot chocolate is pretty good, though actually spicy hot.
  • Looking for a coffee alternative? Try the Nibby Horchata! A house made concoction of cocoa nibs, rice, almonds, hazelnuts, and cinnamon. Pair with a chocolate canel!
  • Love their chocolate. Simple and delicious. You can watch chocolate making process live while sipping on some mouth watering hot or cold chocolate drinks. Try their very unique Cacao Fruit Smoothie.
  • Try the iced chocolate. It's light and refreshing, with a subtle hint of lemon.
  • Try chef's special deserts
  • Dandelion is known for their uniquely smooth and nuanced-in-flavor chocolate seekers of wacky flavored, super sweet stuff should look elsewhere.

  • Do not forget their homemade vanilla marshmallows (Free if you get a hot chocolate!)
  • S'more the house-made marshmallow, definitely try if you are lucky enough to come across.
  • Chocolate quente vegan delicioso <3
