“Warm, friendly service, and excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We found the staff very helpful, warm and friendly to deal with. Even with it busy when we visited, the service remained quick and pleasant. Couldn't fault our breakfasts or drinks. Well done you guys! We will definitely return for another meal!

“Lovely place for a late lunch or a very late breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Had the best seafood linguine in a long time arriving here following a drive up from Taupo- followed it up with an afternoon 'picnic breakfast' (bacon and eggs with hash browns, field mushrooms, kransky sausages etc) after a morning of trout fishing) two days later. Friendly service and a nice cheerful decor - highly recommended.

“Nice breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We ate here on our last morning, friendly staff and good service and our breakfasts were nicely cooked and well presented. Pretty outlook, and some yummy looking slices etc in the cabinet, but we we're too full to try.

“Small but peaceful cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We went there was our last morning in Rotorua, it is a very small cafe but peaceful with some awesome painting. We ordered breakfast and the food is very delicious, it was a good start for our whole day journey back to Auckland. Love this small cafe and highly recommended!! :)
