“Was my favourite ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

I've been to red kitchen a lot mostly to call in grab a coffee and some lunch and hit the road as I am here every month for work we were going to New Plymouth and I was excited to take my partner here we decided to go for breakfast I told him how amazing it was we got the rosti with spinach and eggs sadly both our eggs were poached solid as a rock which ruined the entire breakfast for us the coffee was nice but can't say id go to the effort of dining in and ordering off the menu I see they teach cooking classes here if say poaching eggs should be a walk in the park.

“Yum Yum Yum Yum!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Oh my God! The almond croissant, Chocky caramel slice & salmon brioche are divine! Small town hospitality at its best! Megan also catered for my daughters wedding earlier this year, & everyone commented on how amazing the food was!

“More than just a café!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Only started using Red Kitchen café this year but it's become a fave.
As usual on my most recent visit they had plenty of staff on and service was prompt, friendly and efficient. The food was as usual fresh and well constructed with lots of healthy choices. Dr Libby dishes regularly feature - the quinoa and the beetroot salads are just lovely.
Spent a good fifteen mins browsing the small food shop at the rear which is well- stocked with quality and organic products for kitchen and house. Seating area is a mixture of patio, road-side and in-house. Have a large table suitable for a bigger group. The kitchen area is open and visible from he café - great to catch a glimpse of where it all happens.
Can usually find parking in the side streets, never have to walk too far.
Have seen signs for their cookery school but haven't attended any of the classes yet, but will:)
