I love this little cafe in the Mount and you could easily walk past it and miss out on the great cafe, fabulous cabinet food, beautiful baked goods in the morning and delicious cakes in the afternoons ( the cakes are HUGE). It is small and always busy but it has a little secret hidden courtyard through the back which... More

Unfortunately Mt Maunganui businesses now charge top dollar for a takeaway coffee in what is clearly a medium cup for large cup price.My coffee was lukewarm and very average. Won't be back.

Upon entering the busy cafe for brekkie, the selection & presentation is amazing. I chose outside of my comfort zone & had salmon & veggie breakfast dish - very tasty. Others had the big brekkie - they said it was great! Highly recommend this place. We went to go there for lunch the next day and queue was quite long,... More

Wow,this cafe was recommended by a shop assistant and it didn't disappoint.Starting with great service from the young lady at the front counter to an amazing piece of Carrot Cake and Great Coffee.It was most enjoyable. I would certainly go again and will have no trouble recommending it to my friends and colleagues.

I came here for my 50th birthday and this is by far my favourite cafe. I love it here. It's small and narrow but long and worth it. When you order your food you are stood over some of the most amazing cakes. Lots of staff but they are on to it. Seating outside inside and out the back. No... More
