9 of us stopped here on the way back to the Waikato. Everything was great. The coffee. The service. The food. If I needed a break for another long trip north, I'd visit Leigh just for this place.

We called into CB on our way north from Auckland. We're over wellsford and the dining options there. This place is great fresh food options reasonably priced and child friendly. The generous servings were devoured and the coffee was fresh a tasty. After brunch we wandered into the candy store..WOW what an assortment of new and old favourites. This place... More

A great place to stop and enjoy a break. Had a mixture of coffees, tea and hot chocolates. All tasted good although I would hate to see the small size hot chocolate. Had some food as well that tasted good and seems to be a little different to your average coffee shop. I enjoyed the food. Also went and tried... More

Popped in on our way through town to get coffee to takeaway. Also got some delicious fudge. Lovely place and the food looked good. Would definitely like to visit for lunch one day.

I was excited when I visit them, they have a cafe and shop beside each other. Wanted to get some chocolate souvenir back home. So want to have a taste of their chocolate drink first before deciding what to buy. Expecting a lot from this cafe. Since they are quite popular for chocolate in Warkworth. I ordered The Belgium and... More

Lovely place to visit with lots of eating options. Coffee was not strong enough to my liking. Roast vegetable frittata not bad but suggest that you don't heat up sour cream - doesn't tend to work too well. Came here on the back of Trip Advisor reviews - May have just got it on a bad day.... I would say... More

Good service, friendly staff. Good sized portions and tasty meal. Plenty of parking at rear of building, important in Warkworth as parking is often hard to find. Café was packed and we ended up with last table near toilet entrance, this is the only negative.

My husband and I ate lunch at Chocolate Brown today and I must say mine was the very best roast vege salad I had ever eaten ! Lots of variety and a dressing which enhanced the flavours beautifully. Service was great even with the cafe full of lunchtime diners. Well done C/B. We will definitely be back again soon.
