Condor Chocolates Downtown Cafe
- 160 E. Washington St., Athens, GA 30601
Condor Chocolate's second location, in downtown Athens, features large windows allowing guests to watch small batch chocolate production in action.
Brothers Nick and Peter Dale opened up Athens' first specialty chocolate shop in the Five Points neighborhood in 2014. Condor Chocolates is a bean-to-bar Ecuadorian chocolate shop & cafe. They use cacao from Ecuador, their mother's native country and also incorporate local products in their chocolates. Condor is the perfect Georgia-made Sweet Treat, offering delectable treats like hot chocolate, salty caramel brownies, truffles and pots de creme.
The downtown location also introduces Condor's own coffee, called Peña. The coffee is named after the Choco Toucan, which lives in Ecuador’s coffee-growing regions and is named after the Chocó forest, not after chocolate. Coffee connoisseurs will appreciate the state-of-the-art Decent Espresso machines which will be the first of this kind in Athens.
Grand Opening Hours, over the 2021 holiday season will be10 a.m.–6 p.m. daily, and are expected to expand in January 2022.
