Okay, so load up my hot chocolate with tons of sugar? Why can't they make it so it's actually drinkable? Also if it's bitter because of the chocolate--wouldn't it taste chocolatey?


The hot chocolate was bitter because they use real unsweetened chocolate. All you have to do is add some sugar or splenda! :-) I love love love Acoustic and spent many many hours there studying when I went to Stout. Never had bad coffee... and the scones are amazing!


I'm not sure how you can possibly screw up hot chocolate, but Acoustic Cafe managed to do just that. When I told them the hot chocolate tasted bitter and not at all chocolatey, they said "we could make another one, but it'll come out exactly the same." I told them not to bother. The coffee was also crap--not cold but certainly not hot, and weak. We had to go to Raw Deal to get coffee and hot chocolate. At least the chili was good--but they definitely lost a customer.


ALWAYS the best food and atmoshere for the money. The new owners are customer oriented and quality driven. And...don't forget the big glasses of beer.


Very tasty hot sandwiches and soup. Great place to grab lunch or warm up with coffee
