I did a road trip from head to toes of New Zealand and I could say that Devonport hot chocolate was on of the top 3 that i had during the whole trip. Besides this, the chocolates taste like home made and have a really nice appearance. I specially liked the dark chocolate combined with chilli centre one and the... More

Well I didn`t take the ferry to Devonport, but I went to Devonport Chocolate boutique in Queen street. It was my lucky day as they were tasting white chocolate, my favourite. Beautiful store, well stocked with hand made chocolate from Devonport where the main factory is. The beautiful Steph who was behind the counter that day told me a great... More

Always so many tempting things, but I keep coming back for the truffle logs. Great selection of gifts for children and adults, along with seasonal (and holiday) specialities.

We looked forward to this visit! and weren't let down. The only problem was we couldn't buy the beautifully decorated shoes they had made and painted from chocolate, as too fragile. We happily bought some more hardy bars etc as gifts, and the lovely people at the shop helped out with plenty of bubble wrap. It's worth the detour, you... More

What visit to a quaint village isn't complete without some home-made chocolate? Definitely stop here on your way to the hike for the views - a great boost to get you through! Yummers!

Visited here after being told how wonderful it was by the local tour bus driver, really! it is a very small shop and definitely not an attraction, which has some exotic sounding chocolate, which are very expensive. You can look through the window and see them making chocolate, but there is no actual information. The staff member totally ignored us... More

Thank you very much for your review. As you would have seen we have a tiny store and putting information up about our how we hand make our chocolates is something we are working on. We do ask our staff to engage with customers and explain how our chocolates are made as much as possible and we are disappointed that... More

Some flavors are good, but some are just average. I have had better handmade chocolate from Makana in Kerikeri or Smith+Caughey Queen street (Level 2). The shop is also quite small. Nice to buy a few to indulge yourself while you are in Devonport but I still prefer the chocolate from Makana.

We use the finest coverture chocolate and have close to 50 individual chocolates, truffles and our unique petite chocolate cup.
