We moved from Auckland to Matamata as a retired couple a year ago and discovered two great places to eat. The first was the Redoubt bistro & bar, the second this wonderful cafe. Truly great coffee, consistently excellent and lovely indulgent cakes. The croissants are to die for. Owners, Bill & Jaquie are always welcoming and friendly, great smiles and fun to chat with. 101 out of 100.

They make the best coffee ever (and Chai Latte too - haven't found a better one yet!).
They are always so friendly and chatty. They certainly make you feel welcome. All of the biscuit selections are so yummy, our fave is the chocolate brownie!

What more than a delicious coffee with a mellow homemade muffin??
The cofee is superb. Precisely we got flat white and chocolate muffin....yummy!!One of the best coffee we had in NZ and said by two italians...means is really great! believe me.
And what if this break is followed by a lovely talk with the couple of gorgeous owners??
Yes, it was a great and unexpected experience!! We stopped there on our way to Rotorua just for a coffee, but we got something more!!
The couple of owners gave us a warm welcome in their city. They told us many tips about what to do, to visit and see all around. They suggested us the best way to go everywhere. We felt to be at home!!
Put a stop at Espresso to go if you are planning a trip over there!! worth it!!

we 2 couples from Shanghai China went to new zealand at beginning of December 2013. we drive ourselves all the way from south island to north, the overall experience we had was wonderful, especially the experience we had in the town of Matamata on the highway from Roteruwa to Auckland. we stop by the espresso To Go Cafe. the coffee and cookie we had were very tastey and so lovely. the service we received was fatastic. the enviroment was cozy and warm just like at home, we will stop by when we visit next time .
