This is a real gem of a place.
The staff seem very friendly but not over the top...the menu was not elaborate but seemed concise with a good range of choices. Seating was ample with a lovely looking outside area.
When it arrived, the food was glorious (with my emphasis on the potato scones....superb!) it was all very hot and tasty, but the thing I am most pleased about was the absence of loud music (a particular pet hate of mine.)
My friend, who happens to be a bit of a coffee snob, rated her coffee very highly.
All in all, a very positive experience and we will definitely return!

This is a good neat joint but can be better I would give it 3.5 stars, we went for breakfast my wife had Red Flannell Hash which was clearly the stand out dish and I had eggs Benedict which tasted good but the presentation was very average, 2 small muffins in a plate with little effort to make it more appetizing ...! Considering New Zealand has the best coffee culture in the world I would rate the coffee as 5.5/10 as per NZ standards, the latte art was also average.

Do try their Raspberry and White Chocolate Friand.....I would visit for that alone….the service is very friendly and good.
