Stale muffin Talisman Cafe.. .. Karangahake gorge

We enjoyed a nice lunch at the Talisman cafe after walking through the gorge ..2 weeks later when we were passing we stopped for a coffee and a savoury muffin. The muffin was stale so complained to the woman at the counter. She said they were fresh..she had made them at about 7 the night before and she was happy to eat them.

Muffins and scones should be made fresh on the day..but she said she didn't have time.

it was her attitude that was very disappointing....we thought she would have appreciated honest feedback.

Be warned..don't have the muffins as they are not fresh.

Hello Lyndy :)

There is little point in posting reviews on the forum as no one will see it after day when this thread drops to a back page.

Reviews are best placed in the review section where they will stay evident for years.
