“Never disappointed :)”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

I frequent this Cafe most days and it is always a pleasure to rock up to the door, read the quote of the day and enter the Cafe with smiles beaming out to greet you. This music playing is calming and at a acceptable level the staff obviously enjoy working there, which also come out in the presentation and favour of the food, especially impressed with the variety ever changing and the supply, always plenty in the cabinets. Girls keep it up you have the recipe right!! A awesome addition to Mangonui thats for sure!!!

We had breakfast here every morning when we stayed in Mangonui this year and it was truly excellent with very friendly staff and a good view over the harbour. Plenty of selection

“Angie's "Little Kitchen"”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

It is nice to see something that someone has put their heart and soul into, becoming a success before their eyes. In a little seaside town you don't not expect to find big city fare. Angie has got the mix just right, Auckland quality food and service with local prices in mind, is a big winner for both locals and visitors. This is our third visit during our stay with one more tomorrow before we leave. We can recommend the Angus Burger, the Lamb Open Sandwich or an alternative try chicken. Finished off with great coffee and to die for melting moments.The cafe is light and fresh with just a light sprinkle of art. In the time we have been here we have seen a steady stream of locals and visitors coming and going, good to see it well supported. Top marks from me and highly recommended.

Why thank you! It is pleasing to know that people can see the passion that myself and the team put into our 'Little Kitchen'. I am happy that both you and your wife enjoyed what we have to offer and came back to try different meals - I do hope to see you up this way again soon, make the trip back up to see the Cape! I promise that the Melting Moments will not leave the menu ;)

Again, thanks for taking the time to write a review for us, warm regards,

Angie and the entire team at Little Kitchen

Reviewed 27 May 2014

This cafe gets the golden gong! The Little Kitchen is truly an awesome place to go. Whether it's just a coffee or yummy lunch you are after, the high standard they offer our town is Fantastic. Not to mention the friendly staff, reasonable prices and efficient service. Its also enjoyable being able to read the local paper there for free
