  • The chocolates here are delicious - but expensive the nut brittle is lovely. They often have samplers which is a good way to try something. The Chocolate shop has just opened a cafe next door and it i...  read more »
  • This was definitely a highlight for me in Kerikeri and I kept returning for the gelato and $4 coffees! Good outdoor seating for some sunshine. $4 for any coffee - any size - all double shot! The cakes...  read more »
  • First of all the gelato and the chocolate mousse cake were delicious. In fact everything for sale looks so beautiful. I'm guessing there is one very talented pastry chef working incredibly hard behind...  read more »
  • It was good but I probably wouldn't go back. The treats we had we're too rich for our tastes. The coffee was pretty good. Pleasant interior.
  • Visited the cafe today for the first time and we were very disappointed. We chose our items from the cabinet and placed our order. The food prices are expensive but it was a special treat. As it was Mothers' Day and quite busy, we expected to wait a while. However, after 3/4 hour nothing had appeared. Other customers who came in after us were receiving their orders and we queried this with a passing waitress. It turns out we had been forgotten. Next, I was advised that my choice was no longer available as it had been sold to someone else! We were appalled at the standard of service but they did give us a refund when we asked to cancel our order. Advice to prospective patrons would be to wait until they have their "trainer wheels off" and can run their operation smoothly!
  • Omg you have to stop here . So gooooooood
  • A little pricey, but not bad for a boutique factory. Everything is made on site and as soon as you walk through the doors you are assaulted with the delicious scents of chocolate. Nearly everything is gluten-free, which was a fantastic find for myself. They also had a sizeable selection of sugar-free items, great for diabetics in the family. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, helping my husband and I find appropriate gifts for our family.
  • Hilarious how they produce the sample from under the counter before they quickly make it disappear. Enjoy the morsel because prices that you would expect to find in Harrods in London will leave you dismayed.
