“Tempt your taste buds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Wonderful friendly, patient staff with a good sense of humour. Food was lovely and fresh and very nicely presented. The date caramel muffin was absolutely devine. Wish I had bought another to take home as I can't stop thinking about it.

“One of the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

The Groove Kitchen Espresso is right up there with the best eateries you are likely to find. We were spoilt for choice with the breakfast menu and the food was superb. The morning we visited they were short staffed but the Manager was friendly and unflappable and made us feel most welcome. The interior has a nice feel about it and we came away with a sense of satisfaction on all fronts. Great food and presentation, great staff, affordable prices and a relaxing atmosphere. What more could we want! And the tea and coffee was great too!

“Best coffee”

The barista is exceptional and the coffee fantastic. We read the reviews on trip advisor when planning our trip as great coffee is a key feature of our travels.. Sorry we are not staying longer in Napier .

“Food so good the plates were almost licked clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

Brunch with hubby turned into a good surprise when we found Groove Kitchen. Coffee was excellent, food was amazing. He had the omelette and it was inhaled before my eyes. I was tempted by the daily special and wasn't disappointed. Good portion sizes, excellent produce and obviously made by a chef who cares about what leaves the kitchen. Great value. We even went back for more coffee on the way to the airport the following day. Next time we're in Napier we will be back.

“Yum brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

Came in with three other friends and all of us had great brunch.

The eggs were cooked to perfection and the bacon crispy and left you wanting more.

The service was great too. Friendly and happy staff with lovely giggles coming from the kitchen.
