Excellent dining. Coffee and range of delicious fresh baked sweets. Inside dining, average prices. Shelves filled with deli goods from local producers. Bit busy on day we visited, service a bit slow but may have been down a staff member.

My partner and I had breakfast here, eggs Benedict and coffee. To start with the drinks came out and shortly after the food, it's not often I find a place will actually get them out around the same time, normally the drink is gone then the food arrives. The food was good, my only comment is if you want things... More

Visited for lunch. We saw a pleasant looking, busy restaurant. The menu seemed to suit our needs being a family with two small children. First issue: We chose the fish and chips and asked that the fish be grilled rather than deep fried... unfortunately this 'simple' request was denied with little explanation. It wasn't until the food arrived that we... More

We visited here twice and the menu is varied and encompasses many tastes. We enjoyed kumara zucchini fritters with mushroom & haloumi / pancakes with strawberries / smashed avo on sourdough, and a spicy bean & chorizo... More

This café & deli is well supported by locals. The baristas always produce a fine coffee, the food is fresh and tasty ( if you are there when the daily batch of muffins is pear and ginger, you are blessed), and the service is cheerful.

My wife and I went for breakfast as we're both vegetarian and there are a few veggie options. There was a 25 minute wait for food, however they were completely upfront about this, so I didn't mind and appreciated their honesty. The food was very tasty, I had the zucchini fritters and my wife had an omelette. Both were filling... More

Lovely experience, the meals were great the coffee was great and the wait staff were efficient with a great sense of humour. You get the choice of sitting inside in aircond or outside in the fresh air. There is also produce you can buy inside.
