Our Story…

In New Orleans, the days are long and the nights even longer. listening to Jazz on the streets or strolling along on the Mississippi river walk, helps you get a feel for the true spirt of the city.

On those New Orleans mornings, where time has elapsed from the prior night, The Royal Cocoa Express plays an important part of recouping your energy and warming the soul for another fun day in the “Big Easy”! A warm
cup of holiday sweet and chocolate covered coffee bean “push”, helps rid of the remnants of the night before and starts your day with plenty of soul warming energy!

Bon Appetite!
