A San Francisco-founded single origin bean-to-bar chocolate maker that sources the highest quality beans.
Dandelion Chocolate, the San Francisco-founded single origin bean-to-bar chocolate maker that sources the highest quality beans, hosted a grand opening celebration with complimentary hot chocolate on Saturday, December 7th. The chocolate cafe and retail shop is located inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas, and will be open seven days a week from 6:00am to 9:00pm.
Lisa Vega, executive pastry chef, is presenting an expansive menu beginning at breakfast time; including pastries such as the Banana Bread (Vegas exclusive), and Nib Scones, and a range of Ritual coffee drinks.

All day long pastry treats such as Chocolate Chip Cookie and Oatmeal Cookie will be available. In the afternoon and evening, Chef Vega presents dessert choices including a chocolate-covered eclair (chocolate passion fruit), a brown butter blondie (both are exclusive to Las Vegas), and a brownie bite flight (three types of chocolate); the pastry, treats and dessert plate offerings will be expanded in the new year. Not to be missed is Dandelion’s well regarded chocolate drinks program, beginning with the trio of hot chocolates: the classic Hot Chocolate, the Mission Hot Chocolate (spicy); the deeply rich European Hot Chocolate, and the frozen hot chocolate and iced mocha.
Las Vegas will be the first U.S. city outside of San Francisco to have a permanent Dandelion Cafe and Shop, alongside two pop-ups in Los Angeles and six locations in Japan and one pop-up in Taipai. The new Dandelion Chocolate will be located adjacent to the main lobby entrance of The Venetian Resort® Las Vegas, just steps away from the Grand Colonnade, 3355 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109.
