“Good Value; Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Capers Epicurean is a cross between a restaurant and a cafeteria. I had a fantastic chocolate cupcake and wonderful seafood chowder (though not in that order). So many New Zealand restaurants are expensive. Capers Epicurean was not, but the food was still grat.

“Very good coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Picked up a take away in the morning which was so good we went back in the afternoon for some very nice cakes and an even better cup of coffee than we'd enjoyed in the morning. Good, friendly service and lots of interesting bits and pieces to look at in the store.

“Great place for a meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

They had just started doing table service the night we went, prior to this you had to order at the deli counter. The food was excellent, very reasonable 2 course meal. We also bought scrumptious cakes to take home with us. They also have a shop where you can buy produce.
