Popped down here for a late breakfast prior to hitting the shops on my trip to NZ. Great atmosphere, excellent food and customer service, unfortunately didn’t get the opportunity to visit again before returning to the UK

So many good food places in Ahuriri. This isn’t one of them. Such ordinary food described ridiculously on the menu but in the end average and overpriced.

There was a very small selection of cabinet food - even before 12 midday which was very disappointing as we did not want to order from their 'menu'. Coffee was excellent and staff were friendly but would not return for lunch.
