The best lemon meringue I had in a while. Smiling staff and welcoming. We arrived 15 min before closure in a Sunday and they served us without making us feel that they had to close soon. Great selection of sweets and really fresh products. Checked the factory and also the cafe. Lovely music in the background. Will definitely come back... More

If you are anywhere near Kerikeri this place is worth turning off to visit. Have been here a few times. The macadamia butter crunch is a must. I don't even have a sweet tooth but exceptions have to be made!!

Visited yesterday and left a happy customer. Was asked to sample some chocolate and was so delicious I had to buy, Macadamia, butter toffee crunch. Get your Easter treats here!! Oh and if you pop next door you're in for more treats with some amazing cakes and ice-cream.

Four of us went for cake and coffee. Four of us each said our choice was the best. I cannot begin to explain the taste of my white chocolate cheescake. Good coffee to boot. Go and choose your slice of heaven from the many offerings.

This is one of the best coffee shops I have been to in NZ. No expense has been spared with the decor, very upmarket, even the toilet is a treat. Now to their eats and drinks - out of this world. I have to phone ahead if I want my special treat of almond croissants as they get sold out... More

I love popping into the Makana Factory when I am in the area. You walk in and the delicious smell of chocolate floods you, with friendly staff ready to great you with a little sample of some of their most popular treats. I love watching the chocolate makers (there is a big glass screen right into the kitchen so you... More

We pulled in with great expectations - after all, it's a chocolate factory! However at prices between $2 and $5.- per mouthful, we told the kids to keep their money for the supermarket. The coffee was delicious but I think there are just too many overpriced, 'boutique' chocolate makers setting themselves out as something they really are not.

We stopped there after going to the Saturday farmers market in Kerikeri. It is fascinating watching them prepare the chocolates and yummy samples too. Then you can go next door and enjoy a coffee and very decedent desserts or a wide array of ice creams. Including real sorbets for those of us who can't eat cream. Try the chocolate sorbet... More

Just happened to be passing this place during a wine tour. Absolutely amazing. Great coffee, pastries, gelato and a really nice chocolate factory all in a beautiful setting for afternoon snack.
