Lively atmosphere, relatively quick service, coffee comes within five minutes food follows shortly after, generous portions of everything, I ordered eggs Benedict, eggs were cooked perfectly and the bacon was crispy, the potato rosti was surprisingly better paired with the dish than my usual order of bread, the presentation was nice also meal was very filling cannot complain and always make sure to get a few chocolates on your way out to get the full experience chocolate brown has to offer, one of my favourite local cafes
This place is pretty great. Today I got bacon and eggs after being fobbed off with the world's worst eggs on toast at Black Dog in Matakana. My meal came out quickly and was absolutely delicious and well presented. My partner's mocha was also really good. Reasonable pricing and great service and food.
The most DISGUSTING meal I have ever had at a cafe. I'm not usually one to complain at all, however when you order food and it comes out stone cold you can't help but be disappointed. I ordered scrambled eggs on toast with a side of halloumi and both were stone cold and the halloumi wasn't even cooked. Very disappointing. Couldn't engage with the staff as it was too busy. Such a shame- wouldn't even give this place a second thought
GREAT food, service, atmosphere, cleanliness. They need to address washing glassware faster tho, so as not to serve iced drinks in plastic containers. Menu has been updated since posted here as well. The paeleo dish is very nice. We couldn't help but purchase some chocs from the adjoining shop on the way out. Wish we had stopped in here before Xmas to get gifts for family.
Lovely Chocolate Brown cafe and chocolate factory 👍they sell all sorts of chocolate. My fav is yellow duck shape chocolate which i cannot get elsewhere. Really well priced and beautifully packaged. Their hot chocolate to die for and pancake was just how i like it 😊
Little gem in Warkworth. We decided to have brunch here on the weekend. What a cute little cafe and they do artisan chocolates and fudge too. While waiting for food to be made, you can pop in to their choc shop and you will want to buy one/two to go. We ordered venison burger and big brekkie , food is good, portion is decent and price is the usual cafe price. Service is good and the lady at the choc shop is really nice. The place is child and dogs friendly too.
Some of the best gourmet chocolates I've tasted! As soon as you walk in, you're greeted with an impressive array of chocolates and candy, the chefs are in full view working away in the kitchen - it was almost like something out of a movie. A beautiful shop that produces beautiful sweets!
Food ordered: 3x Fudge (Chocolate Mint, Passionfruit & Caramel, Tiramisu) 3x Chocolates (Passionfruit & Orange, Coconut Truffle, Espresso & Baileys) Bill: $21.60 Big tummy: We stopped off at this chocolate shop on our way back from up north. It can be a bit tricky to find (we missed it the first time), as it's tucked in at the back of Warkworth. It's definitely worth the stop though. The homemade fudge is quite simply the best fudge I've ever tried and they have flavours I haven't seen anywhere else. They're also happy to let you try each flavour, before you make your decision. In the end, I couldn't pick a favourite - hence us buying 3 flavours - all three were just sublime, rich in taste and melting in your mouth. Admittedly, their prices are a bit steep (it's like $5.99 for 100g from memory and 100g is only a small chunk of fudge), but the quality somewhat makes up for it. The chocolates themselves were a bit of a disappointment to be fair. I'm not sure if we picked the wrong flavours, but none of them really stood out to me. The passionfruit & orange was easily the nicest, but even that simply tasted of orange with no hint of passionfruit. Next time, I'll definitely be spending my money on fudge instead. Little tummy: We'd been dying to stop off here ever since we heard of them. Their selection of goodies certainly didn't disappoint, with a wide assortment of candy, chocolates and fudge that you can't find anywhere else. They even do their own dessert sauces. The highlight for me though was definitely the Tiramisu fudge. It was just perfect and would melt in your mouth. I'll definitely be convincing my boyfriend to stop here again next time we past Warkworth.
