Yesterday we were passing through Kaiwaka and as usual we stopped at Nonnas Italian Bakery for a coffee and cake . I did not feel like a coffee so asked for a hot water . I was charged $1 .50 cents which I think is exorbitant - I do not mind paying 50 cents as they have to wash my... More

Coming back from London for a holiday, I needed the best pie kiwis can offer. La Nonna is the one! Also love the shop in Ruakaka. Best pies around! The coffees aren't too bad either!!!

Good place to stop when passing through Kaimana. Excellent food, little on the pricey side. Good coffee but it dismays everything why a long black costs the same as a flat white etc considering the price of milk...

Their coffees are great according to my husband and the place is clean. I wish for me that they had a few things that were not so carb loaded but everyone... More

We went on a terribly rainy day, stopping in to pick up some lunch, never having been here before. As we entered we saw a wonderful array of tasty looking food and the staff looked really presentable and friendly. We bought a marinated lamb focaccia and a chocolate brownie between the two of us, and asked the girl serving if... More
