  • Excellent chocolate!! A bit expensive
  • This place was extremely expensive and the staff were not that friendly or welcoming. My husband and I ended up turning around and going into Napier to find somewhere else to enjoy some coffee and chocolate.
  • Staff are amazing, got chocolates spectacular and the foods perfect!!
  • The staff were friendly and the service was fast. As you'd expect, they have a chocolate focus with some unique items, such as the chocolate toastie that I ordered. It was surprisingly nice, though the portion was huge, especially with both ice cream and cream on the side. It's definitely worth trying something different! The museum was interesting, though some of the information was repeated among the different exhibits. It is a history of chocolate from its initial discovery until about 20 years ago. It's okay, but not great.
  • Lovely chocolate. Delicious
