I almost always drop by when passing through Warkworth to stock up on the essential chocolate supplies for myself and chocolate gifts for various friends and family. Second... the Cafe' is outstanding! Food quality second to none, large ample servings, prices about what you'd... More

After an enjoyable lunch in the cafe we headed next door to let our young son choose a treat. Waited in line for 10 minutes then when we finally reached the counter the staff member moved off to another area without explanation and the other lady serving ignored us and served others. Very disappointing end to lunch, we left with... More

We had a lovely afternoon tea at Chocolate Brown cafe. It is the third time we have chosen to go there and I would recommend it. Staff were helpful and friendly. In the chocolate shop the lady was particularly helpful. I loved the lego lollies. How cute! Nice to sample some of the fare. Yes, we will be going back.

Visited with friends. Very quiet even tho it was Tuesday and a 15% discount for Gold Card holders - this made it a more competitive price with other local cafes. Coffee was good food average.

Hi. Sorry that you had a less than exciting experience. It has been a quiet few weeks due to lack of car parking - something out of our control. Although I am working hard to get this resolved through council and with our landlord. I would be interested to know what meal you had and why you thought the food... More

The coffee used to be really good but in the last six months the coffee is really only hot milk. If you want it to taste like coffee you have to order a double shot which I think is a total rip off.

Hi Allan I am so sorry that you had a bad experience with your coffee. I promise you that we have not changed our coffee. We supply the same brand from Underground in Christchurch - which we have done for over 6 years. It could have been the strength of the shot or the actual making. Can you tell what... More

Ordered 6 meals which were delivered over a 45 minute period. Two of the meals were inedible. One meal was totally incorrect (beef burger ordered, fish burger delivered) and had to be returned. The replacement was stone cold and greasy. The other meal, pancakes, was so rubbery they were impossible to cut and had to be torn apart! A refund... More
