LOVE LOVE LOVE Chantel's! The cabinet options are fantastic but you've got to order their Bircher Muesli, it's incredible! I make sure this is my first stop whenever I'm in Hawkes Bay. The Organic Shop attached is fantastic too.

We found this very good Vegetarian restaurant in Napier and enjoyed a lovely lunch there. This should be listed so that Vegetarian visitors to Napier, NZ know it is available. Great restaurant.
