Food presentation and preparation were excellent. Portion sizes a bit small compared to price. Coffee luke warm. Although we arrived at 8.15 pastries croissants were not yet available so we had to choose something else from menu. Staff at cash till excellent

Thanks for your feedback. We value what our customers think. We are sorry to hear that the portions were on the small side as we pride ourselves on well portioned meals. We have a temporary chef who is filling in while one of our key chefs is away visiting his family. More

The good quality of the bacon was noted by my husband and my breakfast salad was fullsome if a little heavy on the balsamic. Breakfast tea (leaf) was excellent and stayed hot. Like the courtyard greenery... More

I would never have imagined that Warkworth would have a city-style cafe like Chocolate Brown with its smart-casual decor, fabulous coffee and delicious food. Even the clean, chic toilets warrant a mention! We make an excuse to call in every time we pass through Warkworth, even if it's only for a takeaway coffee. The trouble is, lots of other people...

We have eaten brunch here a number of times and never been disappointed with the service or food. If you don't have time for something off the menu, then the cabinet is well stocked with savoury goodies and they have a great selection of cakes, pastries and scones. They are often very busy but always seem to get the food... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here recently for brunch on our way through Warkworth as we were told we had to stop in and check it out. They have a great little chocolate store attached to the cafe which offered all sorts of yummy sweets, and the cafe offered a great brunch menu, as well as some cabinet food. We... More
