If you want a simple but tasty lunch with great coffee this is the place in Wanganui. Busy on the day we went but worth the short wait for a table. The food was excellent with good service.

I caught up with my daughter for a coffee and we enjoyed the old house style space and choice of indoor seating in a couple of different rooms. There is garden and verandah seating as well but the weather didn't allow that for us this visit. The cabinet sweets didn't appeal, but the coffee was good though not rave-worthy. Easy... More

Second time I've been in recent weeks and the food is not as great as it was a few months ago. I had the skirt steak sandwich and it was not as flavoursome as the menu promised. Also they wanted to charge 20 cents for a little extra hot milk with my double espresso............um, why? Do they charge if you... More

I attended a Business Breakfast at Yellow House this morning. The food was excellent and hot. The coffee and tea were served quickly; much needed first thing in the morning. My wife and I visit Yellow House quite regularly, and it seldom fails to satisfy. Keep up the good service Stu and team.

We ordered the house breakfast to share which was just as well as it came with 2 of everything! The fact that they even gave us two plates to share it was a thoughtful touch. The food was delicious with the tomatoes being the standout flavour on the plate. The coffees (2 lattes and then a piccolo) were the best... More

We visited on a gloriously sunny Whanganui Sunday afternoon for lunch with an out of town visitor. It was the first time we tried the food apart from cabinet standards. I ordered the clams with linguine and chilli, my companions had the BLT and the prosciutto salad - all off the brunch menu. The cafe was busy so we played... More
