What would you like? And then keep looking at the selections of pies, fresh bread, cakes, slices, sandwiches, panini and get in early for a cronut before they sell out. What's a cronut? A cross between a croissant and a donut 😍

Didn't seems as try hard as other cafes on Havelock streets. Coffee was good and had a great range of food. We had a $5 coffee and muffin combo which was great value and muffin was delicious

We got some quiche to take to HOY. They were delicous and we also got sandwiches, filled rolls and coffees. Eveything was lovely.

I just went in here when traveling to buy a pie for lunch. My choice of their mussel pie was obvious in a town that calls itself the green lipped mussel centre of the world! It was totally delicious, crammed with mussels, with flaky pastry to contain them. Definitely a purchase to stop for!

Good clean place with a full selection of hot and cold bakery food. We stopped here for lunch and sat outside at the provided tables to eat our orders. All was nice including sandwiches, pies, muffins and donuts. The coffee was nice and the free water provides rounded off a pleasant and affordable meal.

Top food with some indoor seating and quite a few outdoor covered tables on the street. Reasonably high prices but you get what you pay for. Very nice vegetarian pies.Great coffee. Right in the heart of Havelock North village. Very popular.

We frequent this iconic bakery every few weeks. Miss 2 takes delight in being able to point at the item she desires and get it into her hand with precision. The delightfully Hand painted icing covered cookies are her favourite (they have become mine too due to the sheer delight they give Miss 2) I highly recommend the pies and... More

This Cafe is sited only a few steps from the Village Information Centre. Enjoy a Latte or two, on the sidewalk. Friendly staff and plenty of goodies to choose from.
