Nice friendly prompt staff. Plenty of tasty treats in the cabinets. Good coffee. Reasonable prices & good quality "home" baking. Def worth calling past. Yet to try the main menu.

Visited to catch up with a friend mid afternoon, I was a bit early so decided to get a treat out of the cabinet. After a bit of debating decided to get the brownie... pleased I did!! Best I have tasted for ages. Well done!

The food is new, exciting and delicious! The service is friendly, and helpful with plenty of smiles. The prices are affordable. The coffee is a good strength and a good standard. The cafe is clean and tidy. Not a lot of room for prams or wheelchairs would be the only negative.

Quiet little shop off East Street, nice modern interior with some great 80s background music. Ordered the Bacon and egg French toastie with Hollandaise, chicken cranberry and Brie toastie and custard square, all were absolutely delicious. Ordered a flat white and mocha and both were also great. Nice friendly staff would definitely come back again.

We stopped here to grab a coffee while travelling. I checked with the young lady whether it would take long as we were short on time, and she was very friendly and assured me it wouldn't take long - which it didn't.

Superb food! Absolutely some of the best food i have ever tasted! I was particularly impressed with the bacon, cranberry quiche, and the citrus slice. A great place to pop in, grab a coffee and a slice. Also a great place for a kiwi breakfast. Quality service and just a fantastic atmosphere. Very well presented, high quality food. 10/10.

We stopped of in our camper van for a break and a leg stretch. Nice high street and cafe. The cafe seemed to be where people, especially friends met for a lunch and drink. We had small lunch and coffees. The choice of food was excellent and tasty. Some NZ coffee shops seem to specialise in different food to the... More
