New Treats in Kerikeri!

Posted by on

A couple of weeks ago I went out for a girls day out.

We wanted to try somewhere new and then I remembered that the Makana Boutique Chocolate Factory had added a café. As we walked in we were greeted by lovely smiling faces and an array of tasty looking treats. As we looked at all the options we were spoilt for choice. After much deliberation, I decided on ice cream and my friend went for the cake and coffee option . It was absolutely delicious! I had a double scoop in a cone, however, I could have just had a single as they were very generous with their servings. Once we paid we sat outside in the sunshine. There was lots of seating inside and out and even though the café is close to the road it was very peaceful. We both enjoyed our visit to the Makana café and will definitely be going back soon. The toilets are lovely too!!!!!! 

On a Saturday, you can make a day of it with a visit to the fabulous Packhouse Market now just across the road from the Makana Chocolates and Cafe. 

The market runs every Saturday morning from 8.00am indoor and outdoor – RAIN OR SHINE!!!

At the Bay of Islands Old Packhouse Market you will find good, honest, farm fresh products plus value added produce, fabulous artisan breads & pastries, delicious “street” food, great coffee and music.

The Old Packhouse Market is also a good place to purchase gifts from a wide range of talented Arts and Crafts stallholders.

And then go and treat yourself to Makana deliciousness after the markets! Enjoy!
