Dear PoPville – Cacao Closed in Cleveland Park?

“Dear PoPville,

Have you received any news on Cacao in Cleveland Park possibly closing? I was in the area running errands and was looking forward to some mediocre macarons but when I arrived at the shop it was completely dark and almost bare. I was just curious if you knew anything about their situation.”

Back in July ’10 the Cacao chocolate shop announced it was coming to the old Cold Stone Creamery space at at 3508 Connecticut Ave, NW in Cleveland Park. The store has been closed for a couple of weeks now and there was some chatter on the CP listserv that they were just gonna replace some kitchen equipment. However, keeping my eye on the space the last couple of weeks, I’m thinking that is not very likely. They’ve removed everything from the shop (see photo below) and also removed the menu from their front window. Additionally their Web site has been taken down “to perform site maintenance”. But maybe that’s a good sign that the Web site has not disappeared completely. I’ve sent an inquiry to try and get more info.

Were there any fans?
