“Delicious chocolate!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

It's neat to be able to see the workers making the chocolates through the glass window. You get a free sample as you walk in, the Macadamia nut chocolate toffee thing is a firm favourite! The shop is small but well set out. The chocolates are not cheap, but it is definitely worth paying to get good quality chocolate for a special gift or treat

“Always a hit with visitors”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Free chocolate samples, whats not to like about this boutique chocolate factory. Friendly staff and always something new to try. I have taken numerous visitors to Makana that usually leave with some goodies. I recommend a visit to anyone that has sweet tooth.

“Yum!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Free tastings as you walk in the door and you can watch workers make the products through the large glass windows. The confectionery is a little overpriced but well worth it. Loved the Macadamia Butter Toffee Crunch!

Stopped here x 2 1/2 yrs ago. Couldn't resist stopping again! Still excellent, and again we bought these special treats. The staff are welcoming, friendly, and will let you taste anything they have for sale. Fresh, delicious, a must for chocolate lovers!

“Chocolate”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Oh yes, I do love chocolate and what they offer here is superb. Free samples are appreciated. Not cheap by any means, but top notch. We came home with the macadamia brittle and macadamia orange biscotti.
