“Average NZ breakfast”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

This cafe offers the standard fare for an NZ Breakfast...eggs benedict, poached eggs/bacon etc etc as well as "healthier" options. Staff were friendly. The cafe is located right where the Intercity bus drops off/picks up passengers so would be handy for travelers.

“An average place”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Ordered the combo of hamburger and chips, chips were very salty, hamburger was just a basic hamburger. Just an average place to eat, prices were average. Took a while for the food to arrive but that was not really a problem for us as we were not in a hurry. Think being by the main bus stop they tend get food out to the people waiting for buses a priority. My husband had the BLT combo with chips, which he thought was ok.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

Cannot recommend the Eggs Benedict. Advertised as being served with Hollandaise sauce (to be expected), but came covered in foul tasting mayonnaise!

“good cooked food”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

Not exactly the coolest of cafes if you judge a place purely by the decor and ambience but was very surprised how good the pancakes were. Served with a combo of bacon and banana, everything was cooked to perfection with the syrup making it as overly sweet as it should be. I'd imagine this place is good for cooked breakfasts too.

“Always a delighful visit”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

I regularly travel via the Intercity Bus service, and it stops here on the way to Auckland from Tauranga and vice versa. Sometimes it stops at Paeroa instead, but if they stop here, then you're in for a treat. The ladies behind the counter are always lovely to deal with, and the food is great value. Highly recommended.
