    Newport chocolates are without any doubt the best you can possibly buy in NZ. The manufacturers use only first class ingredients and - compared to others - know what they are doing because they have heaps of experience and knowledge. Having said this: You always get what you pay for - like in this case where quality and workmanship reflect the price. And the owners are absolutely right when they claim that well explained and clearly stated (in writing) conditions of purchase don't require further comments. Exactly: You cannot order just one oyster when the menu offers only the options of one dozen or a half. Everyone who doesn't understand this has either got an IQ of less than 60 (mentally retarded) or lives in a dream world.

    Walked the talk with the 'best hot chocolate' special. Friendly owner told us a bit about the town too.

    Best iced chocolate drink I've ever had! And the male staff member also gave us some great travel advice to go to Long Beach which turns out is the nicest beach I've ever been to! Thank you would recommend
