Staff are so friendly and helpful ... awesome service. We went to the Cambridge Farmers Market and they were there so we decided to head to the Café. The GPS doesn't work well out in that area so took us an hour (instead of 15 minutes) driving around the countryside (no biggie as lovely sunny day). We had a blueberry... More

Haven't been to Café Irresistiblue for at least 6 months so decided it was a great option for my birthday brunch. And what a good decision, we all thoroughly enjoyed our food and the service was second to none. They have an excellent selection of vegan options too and as we have a vegan in our group this partly motivated... More

If you like blueberries you will love this place. It has the best pancakes in New Zealand. They also make blueberry ice cream which is excellent too.

I'm not normally a great fan of blueberry muffins but I'd have to say these were the absolute best. I had a white chocolate and blueberry muffin. The texture was lovely and light with the perfect sweetness. The coffee was wonderful too. The venue itself is delightful and set looking out above the orchard. We sat outside as it was... More

Situated on a Organic Blueberry Farm serving the most fantastic food in New Zealand, with farm fresh veggies all natural ingredients. We had the blue berry juice followed by the salmon and a chicken sandwich followed by a blue berry sundae. Fabulous. Great service, beautiful views and very nice place. Looking for to eating here each time I visit.

We were two people for lunch on a Saturday and it was a fabulous experience. We could choose our seats, lovely outdoor setting with funky wooden tables and nice views. Lots of space and sun/shade to accommodate everyone. The menu offered many tempting choices, and when the food arrived we were blown away by the size and presentation. Through our... More

We were in a large group. Two of us elected to have cabinet 'creamy mushroom pies' with salad. After about 45mins they arrived. The pies looked nice accompanied by blueberry chutney in a small dish. The 'salad' looked as if it had come directly from a mesclun mix packet which had been opened some hours prior. It was wilting and... More

The food was fine, but the bunch of young girls working the cafe were laughing and joking loudly the whole time which was unprofessional. Used to be a favourite place to visit, but probably won't go back.
