Exotic handmade chocolates are what you’ll find in Cacao & Cardamom, the sweetest new addition to the Centre at Post Oak. Located near Grand Lux Café and across from the Galleria, this decadent chocolate shop focuses on the art of chocolate with bold and innovative combinations.
Sugar Land native Annie Rupani first founded Cacao & Cardamom in 2012 working out of rented space to cater events and fill Internet orders. Straight out of the gate, she won the best dessert category two years in a row at the Houston Rodeo’s Best Bites as well as a People’s Choice Award before.
Inside the store, colorful gourmet chocolates line glass display cases just as you’d expect from a jewelry boutique. Flavors such as guava tamarind and cardamom rose can be mixed and matched to create custom gift boxes.
In addition to in-store offerings, the chocolatier offers catering services for events and weddings, and is currently in discussions with the new JW Marriott Houston Downtown to provide chocolates for the turndown services at the new hotel once it opens.
