Have been to the cafe' twice in two weeks - the coffee is very very good and the food ordered or in the cabinet is first class and reasonably priced. Caramel walnut slice to die for! Friendly service and clean premises. Would just suggest a sign out on the road to say you are open especially on a wet day... More

I had to finish the wife's... More

A great place to take friends and family, the food in the cafe is just lovely. There's always a wide assortment to choose from in the cabinet (love the stuffed potatoes and yummy cakes) or there's the brunch and lunch menus. The coffee is lovely too. Staff friendly and helpful and it's very clean! The gift shop is super, lots... More

Loved the information provided and the collectables but the over the top experience belongs to trying to drink one of their iced chocolate drinks. Liquid chocolate mousse..........so delicious...couldn't finish mine but my travelling companion managed to finish his and mine.......it totally fulfilled his chocolate craving!

My favourite place to eat. The food is delicious, the coffee amazing and the chocolate divine. The staff are friendly and efficient. Don't just go to the café....there is also the gift shop ( a great to place to find gorgeous hand bags and jewellery)...and the chocolate shop. Not only do they make fabulous chocolates, they also make fudge! Well... More

Visited the factory as a detour between Napier and Hastings. It was very interesting. Loved the museum of chocolate - much better than the one at Phillip island in Victoria, however felt that the entry fee was a little pricey for what was a static display. Despite the adverse comments re Phillip Island factory could I suggest that the owners... More

Honestly, this place is fine if your road tripping and come across it by accident. But at the core to go looking for it specifically it is very disappointing. The chocolate is very average, I didn't even buy any of it as a souvenir because it just tasted like cheap $2 chocolates that you get at the grocery store. The... More
