“No Surprises”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This roadstop café has been trying to climb above itself for a long time but ia still bog standard average. If you are passing through Paeroa and the better cafes are full, you'll get a passable coffee and the standard selection of slices/panini level bites, but you'll be short of anything to write home about.l

“Extremely Normal Cafe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Nothing special about this place. Except for a huge L&P bottle outside the cafe and a couple of L&P quirks. Didnt try the L&P Ice cream. A friend tried an L&P cake but said it tasted incredibly normal. Everything was pretty expensive for what they were selling. Ended up having a ham sandwich as that wasnt too expensive. Supposedly has free WIFI but I couldnt seem to connect to it.

“GOOD CHOICES AND SERVICE”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

We ended up here on Boxing Day because we were told that the lovely 'Refinery' that we wanted to go to had closed down - hopefully not forever. But just wanting somewhere clean and with a good choice of food, the L&P Cafe & Bar was our only alternative. I had tried several in Paeroa on previous occasions and experienced stodgy food, bad coffee, or we couldnt speak over the noise of the coffee machine). L&P Cafe is just a big cafeteria and lacks any atomosphere with average run of the mill 'on the run' food. My companions enjoyed their meat pie and it is clean and the staff were lovely.but someone didnt get my order right.. I asked for scrambled eggs on wholemeal toast.and ended up with soggy white toast. (ugh) Asked for a double shot of coffee with lots of milk - got the double shot but not enough milk. I was given a small jug (cold) and the coffee ended up luke warm. But hey - those lovely employees having to work on Boxing Day - I appreciated that they were there for us and that they did their best.

“I love being at L&P cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Having been to many cafes, I am always so pleased to return to the L&P Cafe. The choice of breakfast and brunch meals, along with cabinet food selection, is extensive. The dinner menu appeals as well. The owners and staff are always friendly.
