“Normal NZ Cafe Breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

This cafe had the normal selection for an NZ breakfast, well prepared. The people I was there with said it had changed in the last year so don't expect the food that it used to serve if you are coming back.

“Gorgeous courtyard & delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

A great find for morning tea on our travels. The courtyard out the back is gorgeous. The tables built around trees would be lovely on a hot summer's day. The staff were really friendly, and only too happy to help get my kids sorted. The boys had delicious homemade sausage rolls( I stole a few bites). They were huge and served with sauce in bowls. My coffee was well made, and the date scone was also really nice. The checkers board built into the table kept the kids entertained while I read the paper. Will defintely be back for more.
