Visit and try the ice cream or have a coffe and cake, then go next door and look at chocolate being made. A great experience and worth the stop!!

Walking through the doors your senses are immediately indulged by the sights and aromas of chocolate being prepared by skilled staff, free samples are promptly offered to pretty much seal your fate... High quality, mastercrafted chocolates and confections worth of the prices asked.

Impressed by the decor throughout the cafe - an attractive restful place to linger. We had drinks and pastries - almond croissant was delicious. The ice creams were hugely enjoyed by the kids, after spending ages choosing, as 'they all look so nice!' Plenty of parking and friendly staff made this a great place to take relatives visiting from UK.

Well you are almost spoilt for choice in this cafe. We stopped on our way out of Kerikeri to check it out and I chose an ice cream. Great that I could get 2 half scoops of different flavours. Went for the chocolate truffle and coconut bounty ice creams - both were excellent. Stopped on the way back from our... More

Every time we go to Kerikeri we have to stop here to get the macadamia brittle toffee & I could eat the whole box in one go. We also bought some macadamia shortbread dipped in chocolate & boy that was great also. It's also nice to watch them making all the chocolates they sell. It's great that when you walk... More

I have been here several times. The cakes are top price but they are definitely quality. When I go here for morning tea I find I am so satisfied I don't need lunch. It improves more every time I go there. The chocolate section is a must visit too!!

We were recommended to stop here, but it felt underwhelming as an attraction. It is mainly just a confectionery store with a cafe beside and a window to see the process of their chocolate making. They also provide free samples. The chocolate was good, though a bit overpriced. The cafe was a nice stop.
