Award Winning cafeteria and chocolaterie. A Kiwi styled menu, just like our nanas used to bake: home-made cabinet food and specialty drinks. Next door in the Chocolaterie are hand-made chocolates, British sweets, Dutch licorice, Kiwi lollies, and gourmet fresh fudge. Come and be warmed by our fire in winter or sit in the sun over a beautiful Kiwi summer. We would love to see you here soon. Open for breakfast, and lunch. Open for dinner in summer.

Excellent coffee and great service. Was one of the few cafes open in Warkworth on the public holiday so that was appreciated. The chocolate shop is great with amazing chocolate choices.

Chocolate Brown is a popular Warkworth Cafe not just with locals but also travellers heading to Matakana and the northern beaches. A great place to enjoy a coffee or a light meal then head next door to the chocolate shop and indulge yourself.

Great food, staff were very friendly and we shared the big bucket of fries which were really hot, but lovely and crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. We received Aioli with it, but not tomato sauce even though the menu said it...came with both. It wasn't a big deal. I did hear that the coffee machine was not working, but we ordered shakes anyway. Some patrons came in and sat down, only to find there was no coffee, so perhaps a sign up advising people of this, would have been helpful.More
