Humuhumu’s description:
Retro coffee house decorated with a variety of kitchy items with a Hawaiian & tiki emphasis combined with sci-fi. Cacao has a typical laid-back coffeehouse atmosphere, with a variety of high-quality ("or your drink is free!" according to their website) beverages, their specialty being a mocha shake. Being a coffeehouse, there are no alcoholic beverages, and the food menu is limited. Cacao provides free wireless internet access, and periodically features musicians and poetry nights.

Cacao was opened in 1990, but didn't get its sci-fi/tiki theme until new owners Bobby Green and Alastair Newbery took over in 1993. These two went on to later open Bigfoot Lodge in Atwater. Current owner Jeremy Bell, a longtime Cacao patron, took over Cacao in 2000.
