Great lunch, daily menu changes. All options a cut above average cafe fare. Our party included a chef who rated food options and quality very highly.

Perfectly poached eggs, a yummy avo smash w/ tasty toasted tomato and everything served up both congenially & timely w/ this cafe's typical quality preparation. Please note: My only chitch this visit was... More

We popped over the hill from Upper Hutt to enjoy some sun. We had an entertainment discount for this place so thought we'd give it ago. Service was great! Waitress was attentive even though it was busy. My hubby ordered the cheeseburger which looked good and I got the club Sammie. It's the biggest club Sammie I've seen! It was... More

I've been here a few times in the past couple of years, the service is always good as is the coffee. One of the few places that always seems to get poached eggs just right.

We ended up eating dinner here both nights we were in town as all the food was great. From the shrimp pasta and scallops to the Parmesan salad and rib-eye, everything was wonderful. Definitely recommend eating... More

Man devoured the Farmers brekkie everything on his plate was cooked to perfection. And to top... More
