Delicious icecream flavours and good value coffee. The slices of cake are slightly costly but packaged up lovely for takeaway and well worth the treat!

Absolutely delicious chocolates. Wide variety. Hand made. Too many flavors to choose from. My personal favorite is their macadamia chocolate.

You can be assured of a great coffee here for only $4 no matter what it is or the size. I usually have a pastry tart as well which I always enjoy. There is a great range of desserts and icecreams etc but I have never tried those. Too cold for me in winter. You can watch them making all... More

They sucked us in right from the moment we arrived - one taste of the free sample on offer and we were just all saying "Wow!" I'm not going to tell you which one it was because everyone has their own taste, but this was the nicest sweet I have ever eaten, and of course I bought a box immediately.... More

We visited the Makana Chocolate Boutique and were delighted to be offered free samples. Of course that encouraged us to buy some more. The Macadamia butter toffee crunch is amazing and must be tried! It was interesting to see how some of the goodies were made, we were surprised to see that they did not pop their own popcorn before... More

We visited here and where surprised at the prices, they have increased dramatically since our last visit. We purchased their chocolate coated ginger and chocolate coated apricots and can not believe how tasteless they both were. What a disappointment. I would not recommend stopping here. Over priced and flavorless product.

Took the family ( 7 people) and everyone had something different and everyone raved about their products and service, Would not hesitate to reccomend to anyone who is partial to a bit of chocolate. We will definitely be back.

This was a place that I was excited to visit. I was delighted to be greeted with a wee sample of a couple of their chocolates not long after setting foot through their door. The young women was friendly and informative. We could see where the chocolate would be being made unfortunately there was nothing happening doing our stop, which... More

We visited this wonderful establishment whilst staying in Paihia on the Bay of Islands. The chocolate shop is full of lovely treats and you are offered samples as you enter. We found a range of goodies to satisfy all our tastes including some beautiful cookbooks. Once we had finished in the shop it was onto the cafe which had a... More

what a gorgeous café. Had the White Chocolate Cheesecake. Seriously Yum! Really appreciated being able to watch the chefs at work through the glass. Great experience all round.
