Excellent coffee, wonderful array of sweets to accompany it, and a shop of artisan chocolates to take home. Vine covered patio, or eat inside and browse the latest magazines for a leisurely break.

Great cafe situated in Warkworth township. Amazing fudge and the best Hot Chocolate for those cold winter mornings!

We stopped in for a light lunch and this cafe seemed the most inviting in Warkworth. The staff were friendly but not that efficient. We had a long wait in between each person's food being prepared. The sausage roll was good.

Not just an eatery. The menu is a good mix of breakfast and lunch options. There is also a kids menu which consists of more than the usual chicken nuggets. There is an area for the kids to play or watch DVDs. Parking is good,...More

We stopped at Chocolate Brown at the end our tour in Matamata with Auckland & Beyond Tours. They welcomed us with a chocolate tasting then we relaxed in the cafe and enjoyed a lovely hot chocolate. Great place & yummy chocolate.

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.
