We visited on the way to and from Napier (ex Wellington). Food was delicious and the coffee was very good. Would love it if we had something like this in our neighbourhood! Try the quiches and sausage rolls. Croissants are also excellent.

We stopped here on our way to Napier and were blown away with how delicious everything was. We enjoyed a coffee and hot chocolate, with a citrus tart and orange and almond meal cake. The service was excellent and you can tell how much they care about the quality of their food. Highly recommend.

We had come in from the Whairapa after tramping so were fanging for a good coffee and a snack and we hit the bestplace in town straight off. Males staff very welcoming, but female found it hard to crack a smile. However she made really good coffee and we had a sample of some very tasty pastries. Would be back... More

We stopped for breakfast here. The staff are very nice and the food good. We ordered flat white coffees and they came in proper mugs. Just what we wanted to start our day.

Nice choice of bakery items and good coffee. Opens quite early even on Sunday so great place to grab a light breakfast.

Had several coffees and pastries here whilst staying in Greytown. Friendly, efficient service, good coffee and drinks, excellent authentic French baking. Really enjoyed it and would recommend this popular small cafe right on Main Street.

Fantastic flat white. The rhurburb crumble was amazing. Extremely hot day so air conditioning was most welcome.

We stayed in Martinborough, but visited this cafe twice. The first time was for afternoon coffee. The coffee was excellent. We also had two pastries, a lemon tart and a raspberry danish. Both were excellent. The lemon tart, however, was outstanding. We were so impressed by our experience that we decided to pause on our trip north the following morning... More
