Coffee tasted terrible. A friends 'cronut' was actually just a donut!!! What a disaster. I still gave a 2 star because we were offered free chocolate.

We were taken to Chocolate Brown as part of the Matakana Food & Wine Tour. We tasted different chocolates, all deliciously different. They have a very large variety of chocolates and sweets, including many different licorice sweets. If you have a sweet tooth and love chocolate, you must visit, but be prepared to buy!

I felt like a cuppa and something chocolate base before arriving in Auckland so was sure this cafe could deliver. Tea was great, music not so much. Booths a little tired. Staff were friendly. I asked for smallest piece of truffle cake expecting it to be light and mousse like - unfortunately it was not small or light. Tea hit... More

Amazing food, great coffee, friendly laid back service, warm offbeat decor. Always has diners, with good reason. Chocolate shop part of the place is also amazing. Forget your diet for just this one time. We look forward to periodic trips from Whangarei to Auckland because we always eat here and have never regretted it.

Chocolate Browns not only serves good coffee, and good food, it is joined by a great little chocolate factory with a wide and very tempting range of lovely chocolate and fudge. Well worth a visit as long as you're not on a diet! There is a good range of dishes available, from snacks to larger dishes, and they have daily... More
