Visited in April 2 days before the Cafe opened so JUST had to go back on this visit to experience. No matter what you read or their web-site tells you can prepare you for the wonderful atmosphere and decor of the Cafe. Visited the Chocolate factory before and as usual delicious chocolates and friendly staff and to see the production... More

Have been buying these lovely chocolates for a few years now great for a gift or just for yourself . I buy online they arrive in a few days. I visited the Makana chocolate factory in Blenheim worth a visit.

Greatly enjoyed picking through the selection. Ate a few over our trip and enjoyed them very much. A lovely cafe is attached with good coffee and superb cakes/desserts.

They usually offer a wee sample. You can see through the windows, people making the delicious range. My two favorites are macadaemia popcorn and macadaemia brittle. But there are so many different lovely things to choose from. Good place to get that special present from too.

If you love chocolate then this is the place for you. In my opinion there is no other chocolate that comes close and I eat a lot of chocolate. It is scrumptious. Also they now have the chocolate cafe next door with the most delicious cakes and cookies, gelato ice cream and the best coffee in town for $4 small... More

Great choice of chocolate treats. You can view the chocolate and other treats being made. Lovely staff who offered free tasting the minute we walked in. Really delicious treats.

Here's a great little chocolate treat visit for the adults. As you enter the door, lovely sales people offer you a tempting taste of what is on offer. Whilst the products are not cheap they are divine and I have to admit that if we had not been offered a taster I probably wouldn't have made a purchase. So obviously... More

If you are not a chocolate lover, you will be by the time you leave this place. They offer tastings of their 'product of the day' and even the tiniest morsel has you drooling for more. Staff are very friendly and engaging, they're not the type to hide behind the counter either. They will be out on the floor to... More
