Cheapest coffee in town and the cheese scones are scrummy! Get in early as the cheese scones are gone by 10am. Their "make a sandwich" for lunch is pretty good too.

Great coffee and only $3.50 each. A bargain in NZ! This is our local Mon-Fri haunt. We come for breakfast, morning tea AND lunch ... Sometimes all on the same day! (Ngah, not really all on the same day!) Yum - highly recommend 😊
