The desserts are delectable.such a visual feast. Didn't try the chocolates, but I imagine they would be superb. The gelato and sorbet are smooth, creamy and taste divine. I especially drooled over the cherry sorbet. Taste like they are meant to taste not like the artificial taste you mostly get now days. Premises are very clean and the outside area was lovely to sit in on sunny day. Staff are lovely and helpful esp as lots people try samples and can't make up their minds. So many to choose.

Very clean professional place. If you arrive at the wine district too early give this place a try as it opens before the wineries.

Delicious samples to taste and you can observe the making.

A bit on the expensive side BUT delicious - chocolate AND toffees (e.g. macadamia butter toffee crunch YUMM!) 250g box was NZ$25

Before you even step in to the Boutique you start to get excited. Once you enter you find friendly staff who offer you a selection of chocolates to taste and feel like you are in chocolate heaven. I love that you can watch the chocolate makers through the glass while they are creating their masterpieces. The boutique is beautiful and the displays are very eye catching. Definitely a place to go if you are ever in Kerikeri. They have a wonderful cafe too.

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.
