We visited the Chocolatier and the Café. Staff at both were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had one of the best iced chocolates ever and the Macadamia caramel popcorn was magnificent. Would definitely recommend a visit.

A must if in Kerikeri the chocolate boutique will have a chocolate for everyone. Cook books as well to purchase. Also next door now is the cafe which cakes and ice creams.

On a two trip to Kerikeri we stopped at the Makana Cafe for coffee and cake. Certainly the best coffee we found in Kerikeri and the most delicious chocolate eclair which had my husband licking his lips. I enjoyed a yummy pecan tart - needless to say dinner was light. Well worth a visit, air conditioning, modern and very cool... More

Stopped here on the way back to Auckland from the Far North, a little off highway 10. Well worth the small deviation in our trip home. This place makes handmade chocolates which you can view through a glass window from the shop. The Chocolate selection is truly world standard. We were offered a sample once inside & viewed their selection... More

First visit to the cafe and what a place of chocolate heaven. A great variety to choose from and great service. We both enjoyed our chocolate desert choices and will be back to try more.

Walked in and was immediately offered a free sample which my wife said was beautiful. We walked out with three items. Two sugar free chocolate, one containing macadamia nuts, and a macadamia nut toffee. You could spend a fortune if not careful. There are windows where one can watch them being prepared.

I recently visited the Makana Chocolate Cafe in Kerikeri, the latest addition to the Makana brand. I had heard about the amazing ice cream and decided to sample. I noticed a lot of the ice creams had nuts on them so I informed the assistant of my severe nut allergy. She asked me what flavour I would like and said... More

With so many beautiful pastries in the counter at the cafe it was difficult to choose just one! Delicious food and yummy Kokako coffee. Very reasonably priced for the quality.

Beautifully made truffles and shortbreads etc. You can see them making them by hand. Tasters too. Delicious. Can buy single truffles at the café next door. Customer service was superb. Very attentive and informative at both cafe and shop.

We went to Saint Clair for lunch and found this chocolate factory. Both myself and my husband loves chocolate but we were unwelcome by the staff and we can felt strongly of Discrimination. We are not sure what they have experienced before or if any of Asian or Chinese guests have done anything, but we will never even go there... More
