“Local hangout....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

1st time to this cafe as another member of family invited us here for brunch. Looks very unassuming from the outside but on entering it's quite spacious. Display cabinets seemed to have a very large variety of food as well as choices from the menu board. Food was nice and service was good. Staff friendly. We were told on that day that this place is not only popular with visitors but also with the locals and have been told that again since, so that would have to account for something. We have returned a couple of times since and got a table in a quieter part of restaurant where the fireplace is - lovely! Had Eggs Benedict with salmon. Can't say it was perfect but it was close. Atmosphere seems to be very friendly. Will most certainly keep going back.

“Eggs Benedict were to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Stopped on the off chance for a quick breakfast en route to Wellington and we were not disappointed. Friendly staff and excellence service which we were becoming increasingly pleased about throughout our trip. The eggs benedict were fantastic as was the coffee.
