Had lunch in a beautifully perfumed rose garden under shady trees. Had salmon quiche filo and cappuccino coffee. Friendly service. Really enjoyed. Thanks.

There's a rose garden with tables and chairs to sit underneath the trees. Nice to see the choice of sandwiches in the cold cabinet food. Coffee is good.

The guy barista is very cheeky (good cheeky) and the coffee here was the best I tasted in New Zealand. The food selection looked decent too. The second time I came back the barista recognised me and had a little chat which I thought was nice.

My mum and I like to sample new cafes, and since we've tried all the other ones in town we decided to give the Mustard Seed Cafe a go. The staff did not make eye-contact with us even once. No greeting, no smile, not even a "can I help you?" The lady behind the counter scurried off to clear a... More

We stopped at your cafe on Saturday morning after having travelled across the Desert Road where it was only 2 degrees.
