VIP prices for being treated as the last people in the world! Food was pretty average and the experience just terrible. Felt sick the next day - which kind of ruined the two days stay at Rotorua. Will never come back and definitely warn friends&family. Kind of surprised after all the good reviews - maybe the owner changed.

I've been here several times, usually just for coffee, when staying in Rotorua. This morning we had breakfast there and it was delicious. We don't eat much bread and when we asked for it to be left off our dishes we were offered other options, mushrooms with my eggs benedict and potato cakes with my partner's bacon and eggs. Service was excellent, toilets were clean, water glasses were a sensible size so they didn't need constant topping up. Will definitely keep coming back!!
