Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went here to pick up some toffee for our friend who highly raves about this place and we can see why!! They sell chocolates, toffee, lollies, and other gift items. Their creations are absolutely delicious! Highly recommend!

This place has the yummiest chocolates. There is a large glass area where you can view the chocolates being made. The lovely girl at the counter gave us some decent pieces of chocolate to taste and that is what we ended up buying. There is a good variety of chocolates, and some are gift wrapped so nice to buy for family and friends as gifts.

Over all disappointing to be honest. The cafe side of the factory is now closed up. We viewed chocolates bring made through the glass windows from the shop, this was interesting. The chocolates and candies looked yum but the prices were very high..may be less packaging would lower the price a bit.

We don’t consider ourselves big chocolate eaters but these were delicious! Purchased popcorn and a macadamia butter toffee crunch - perfection! The toffee didn’t get stuck between our teeth and still managed crunch!
The box came with 3 large slices and we knew - knew - we would share this over the next 3 days and failed. It was so divine we ate the whole lot in one sitting! Holy cow! I think we might drive back today!

The whole family was looking forward to the delicious looking treats in the pictures provided online.
When we arrived there were no treats, there was no cafe, and no yummy ice cream as per photos.
We got nothing but a boring chocolate gift shop and some disappointed children.
If the cafe has closed and there are no treats anymore then you should remove the photos or make it clear somewhere online.

Stopped by on our way to the Bay of Islands and was attracted by the large signage outside this building. Sampled a few chocolates on offer and bought quite a bit of the available variety.

Must confess the PACKING was very fancy!!!

But the prices were EXHORBITANT!!!! especially for the quantity provided.

Overall--7/10

My husband and I went to the Cafe for Brunch in November 2021 and the food was superb! The service was a tad slow but what we had - the Spanish Eggs which my husband rated as the best ever had anywhere ( including several places overseas) and my creamy mushrooms were excellent! Very generous quantity as well. Would go back anytime! Surroundings and atmosphere also very pleasant.

We have been to Makana countless times and the quality of their chocolate is consistently excellent. The staff are always courteous and helpful, a trainee was working in the cafe over the weekend and even she was doing a great job.
Price wise it isn’t the cheapest but you really do get what you pay for and it is worth the premium price.

We have now eaten there twice. Once for breakfast and then lunch the next week.
For breakfast I had corn fritters. Superb. A largish meal but immaculately cooked.
My husband had the eggs benedict… also very good.
Lunch .. I had the pork masala. Beautifully presented and tasted even better.
My husband had the lasagna, another triumph.
We have been here for 4 years and eaten here before.
We most certainly will return.
