  • My second visit to this cafe and chocolate shop and both times I've been disappointed. The cafe feels crowded and the food options are just a bit confusing and not great. It feels a bit run down too. The only plus is the special hot chocolate. The chocolate shop itself, it's just not good quality chocolate and yet it is priced and presented as if it were. I think they've marketed themselves very well, but I would recommend to avoid as there are far better chocolatiers in NZ, even in Hastings!
  • Great place for your chocolate over load
  • Fabulous range of delicious cabinet food and brunch/lunch menu. Good range of gluten free options also. Must try their extreme hot chocolate. Lovely rural setting.
  • Great food but very busy on the day I visited. Took some time to get our meals but worth the wait. Great chocolate shop too.
  • Great service. Nice drinks and food. Brilliant chocolate.

Where to stay in Napier

pier boasts a range of accommodations, most located on the tip of land that ends at the Port of pier. From boutique Art Deco hotels and rental apartments to backpacker hostels, the central district offers options for many tastes and price ranges. With the city's buildings so attractive, a sea view may not be as much of a deal-breaker as it is elsewhere. Farther out of town, you can choose from an array of more economical motels, or at a campsite.
