Went in to get a mocha today. Got served by a lovely young man with flowing hair. Really tickled my fancy if i do say so myself. Great tasting mocha and had good banter to go along with it. Would go again. Definitely not scruffy

For starters their coffee supreme is nz premium bean so that alone made me go. Unfortunately the food wasn't as good as the coffee but the experience overall was good.

Visited Rain today for lunch with my elderly Mum. We both enjoyed every item especially the salmon omelete. The smoothie and ice coffee were superb. All beautifully presented.

Went in for breakfast after an early appointment. Ordered the Big Breakfast. Seemed a long time in the cooking. Coffee arrived quickly but was on the weak side and too hot. When breakfast finally arrived, the poached eggs were hard, bacon ultra salty and the rest on the plate pretty average, considering the price am disappointed... Have been here before... More

i always enjoy the fresh variety of salads, and the variety of omelets is just the best, and the coffee tops it all off.
