Walked in and was immediately offered a free sample which my wife said was beautiful. We walked out with three items. Two sugar free chocolate, one containing macadamia nuts, and a macadamia nut toffee. You could spend a fortune if not careful. There are windows where one can watch them being prepared.

I recently visited the Makana Chocolate Cafe in Kerikeri, the latest addition to the Makana brand. I had heard about the amazing ice cream and decided to sample. I noticed a lot of the ice creams had nuts on them so I informed the assistant of my severe nut allergy. She asked me what flavour I would like and said... More

With so many beautiful pastries in the counter at the cafe it was difficult to choose just one! Delicious food and yummy Kokako coffee. Very reasonably priced for the quality.

Beautifully made truffles and shortbreads etc. You can see them making them by hand. Tasters too. Delicious. Can buy single truffles at the café next door. Customer service was superb. Very attentive and informative at both cafe and shop.

We went to Saint Clair for lunch and found this chocolate factory. Both myself and my husband loves chocolate but we were unwelcome by the staff and we can felt strongly of Discrimination. We are not sure what they have experienced before or if any of Asian or Chinese guests have done anything, but we will never even go there... More

First off their chocolates & sweets are delicious but generally super overpriced unfortunately. Their customer service in store is poor, I've been 3-4times and this seems to be the standard. We used their champaign truffles as our wedding favours which were amazing although when I went in store to order them they rather frankly told me this had to be... More

This review is for the cafe adjacent to the chocolate shop. The service was very good . I just had a coffee and walnut gelato and a long black coffee. There were scrumptious looking treats but I had not long had lunch. I will be returning to savour at least one of them. The cafe was scrupulously clean. The cloakroom... More

It's was our first trip to the boutique, and after being told this was some of the best chocolate/fudge in the world; we were not disappointed. Definitely worth a visit! On the flip side, the customer service leaves a lot to be desired. Considering we spent $250 on fudge (10 boxes of the tester they offer you- note they give... More

You are greeted with an offer of samples to try, yuum. So many delicious things to choose from. My favourites were macadaemia popcorn and macadaemia brittle. All stock is beautifully packaged and presented. Makes lovely presents or just indulge yourself.

This was out first visit. We live in Kerikeri and as so often happens people rarely visit attractions on their doorstep. We have heard that there were a few glitches to start, that happens too. Our experience was delightful. Lovely cakes and gelato (made in house) great tea and coffee, friendly staff and a very pleasant setting. A few savoury... More
