Owner description: This is a chocolate boutique where they make speciality chocolates before your eyes (and you can have a go too!) and the products are the best chocolates, without fear of contradiction, you'll find anywhere!

Always stop here when visiting Kerikeri. Well designed and presented clean shop. Great to see the chocolates been made and always a sample to taste. Fantastic range of chocolates but rather expensive then they are a treat and hand made. Next door is their cafe which is an impressive designed building with a great layout and a large courtyard. Nice landscaped gardens. The selection of treats to die for and the gelato ice cream gives you so much choice you need to sample a few to decide which one you want. Excellent stop for a self indulgent treat.

On entering the Makana Chocolate Boutique we were greeted by smartly dressed smiling and cheerful staff offering free samples of “today’s tasters.” Though quite expensive we were very happy with our purchase which taste absolutely divine. The Boutique is clean and has a lovely calm atmosphere with the biscuits and chocolates beautifully merchandised. We were also impressed being able to view the factory through the glass windows.

Makana Chocolate Boutique is a delightful cafe full of delicious treats. We were treated to a freshly brewed pot of leafed tea and strong aromatic coffee. The slices are all hand-made daily and painstakingly delicately decorated by proud artisans. We saw them if action! We chose a creamy soft lemon meringue pie and a buttery croissant. Just mouth watering! Go and see for yourself!

Fantastic kokako coffee! Underated NZ coffee soooooooooooo good. Had the almond and citrus cake! OMG! Soft and tasty. Others had the sugar rush. Divine food. Rich and slightly expensive. But an experience that is worth stopping in for!

Always try to stop here any time we are in Kerikeri. The service was great the free tasters were fresh, we brought the macadamia shortbread choc dipped biscuits and whilst they ARE amazing at $26 feels a wee bit pricey. Also got the toffee macadamia buttercrunch? this has to be the best thing on offer at this place but last time I brought it I got 4 slabs however this time only 2. Save your pennies before shopping!
