We visit this cafe each time we visit Palmerston, they have a great selection of food and plenty of seating. Today my daughter and I went for lunch we were told the wait would be 20 mins but after 45 mins I went and was told they were serving it up but after another 5 minutes I went and said... More

Although this place doesn't look like much, the food is excellent and the service is great. There's a huge selection so that even fussy eaters will find something they like. The portions are generous. We liked it so much at morning tea time we went back for dinner (the mall is open late on Thursdays).

Tasteless coffee. Rude front staff. However seems busy and popular. OK value for money, but you certainly get what you pay for.

Graemes is perhaps the most expensive café I have been to in the world for the food you get. I could (and have) easily spend $50 for a few sandwiches and a cake or two for me and my kids. I wont be heading back there again in a hurry.

Clearly this is a great Café in the hub of the Palmerston North Plaza. Food for all age groups are catered for by the extra friendly staff. Watch the hustle and bustle of shoppers while sipping your Café.

Not a lot to be said. The long wait for an overprices breakfast that came out cold.The scrambled egg just passed. Why put limp lettuce on the plate. A pleasant smile would of been nice when ordering.

Thank Alexander S
