Makana cafe
Dec 2020 • Family
They have a cafe next door with gelato and cafe menu.
We were very excited to go for brunch, waited about 45mim to get our food !!!! Staff doing a bit of everything... not very organised... you get your drink pretty quick but have to wait for 35min to get your food ridiculous... their excuse “we are busy” !!! Won’t be going back that’s for sure and the food wasn’t even worth it ....

Delicious food and friendly staff. Great being able to watch the chocolate being made through the window. The shortbread was best I've ever eaten.

A quick stop
Jul 2020
Well worth a visit if you're driving past, but not worth making it a destination. The confectionary is very good, but it is expensive.

Sinfully Delicious Chocolate
May 2020
They have enough of a range to suit most people's tastes. How about chocolate with Ginger? Or, one of my all-time favourites, rum-and-raisin. Heck, they even had sugar-free chocolate!

As you'd expect from a boutique place that hand-makes all its products to the highest quality standards, then packages it in the most luxurious-looking boxes, their products are not cheap.

Being a chocoholic, however, I still consider it a bargain!

Many thanks for your review and kind compliments. You have helped brighten up what is a very depressing day. Like all non-essential businesses Makana is closed until further notice. Hopefully when this crisis is over we can reassemble the team and return to the work that we all love. Very best wishes and thank you again.

Chocolate Heaven
Mar 2020 • Couples
If you love chocolate, go here. Our favourite is the macadamia butter toffee crunch. Be very careful, it’s highly addictive! Other choices are available. All products are made on the premises and are beautifully packaged. Perfect for take home gifts, if they last that long. There is a fantastic coffee shop and cafe next door but skip that and go for the ice cream.

Delicious
Feb 2020
This place has two entrances. The one on the right is chocolate. You can see them making the candy and sample some before selecting some to buy from a large selection. The left entrance is to the ice cream shop with a good variety of unique flavors. The goodies on both sides were delicious.

Brunch at the Makana Cafe
Feb 2020
Top Location, shady outside when its sunny and very comfortable inside dining. The menu offer good choices, the pricens are medium. we had eggs Benny and the pancakes with fruit and bacon, both well presented, great tastes, and top service. The Cafe is licensed, and has one of the TOP Ice creme parlors in Northland. Good ofr business meetings and family gatherings. Located just across from the Kerikeri Sat / Sun Market. Upmarket venue with medium price tag, ALSO in the same building is the Makana famous chocolate factory.

So so experience
Jan 2020 • Family
Just a typical chocolate confectionary. We didn’t see any chocolatier in action, other than 3 people dipping biscuits in chocolate sauce and packaging them.

There were also no specialty chocolates on display. Only packages of biscuits, popcorns, nuts etc......not a chocolate factory we have in mind sadly.

I'm so sorry that your visit to Makana didn't meet your expectations. We do have a short video "Virtual Tour" on our website to help you understand what a visit to Makana would be like. If you saw someone hand-dipping biscuits in chocolate (not chocolate sauce) then you certainly did see a chocoaltier in action. We make two regular chocolate biscuits by hand, Chocolate Dipped Shortbread and Chocolate Sipped Biscotti. I'm sorry that you didn't see the other 51 products, including hand-dipped chocolate truffles, chocolate dipped fruits, sugar-free chocolates, chocolate dipped macadamia nuts etc.etc., that we have on display and on sale, although I really don't know how you could have missed them.
