Walking along Maraetai and stopped here for a snack. Shared a beef burrito and large chips washed down with an iced chai drink. Decided date and orange scones were not to be ignored so shared one of these as well. Scrumptious.

Very bad fish and chips, deep fried large fish fingers do not count as fish and chips. Such a shame for the area to have a take-away joint like this.

This cafe was lovely. The staff were kind and our food and coffee came out quickly. The chocolate cake was especially nice. Would definitely go here again.

We popped in here for an afternoon coffee. We usually go to the cafe next door, Bach'n, but needed to check this place out. Decor is kind of low key beachy. Nothing flash, but nice and spacious. They had a great selection of cabinet food...More
