After our disappointment at Matakana Market Kitchen, we thought we were going to suffer during our stay here. Fortunately Plume Cafe came to the rescue. The freshly baked breads and pastries were delicious. The prepared meals were also enjoyable. Coffee isn't as good as we found in the big cities, but still a step up from the other cafes in... More

Stopped by to purchase bread and decided to stop for coffee and a sandwich. While some of the sandwiches were fine the wrap O ordered was no bigger than a large spring room, the couple of bites tasted fine just not enough

Hi MoretonBoy - thank you for the review and we do hope you liked the bread you purchased too? Our bakers work very hard to make the best artisan breads. The wraps are made by us and placed on the counter with a price tag of $5 - when you purchased the same you could most definitely see it too... More

Stephen the Manager is a very friendly fellow, an asset to the cafe. We had great coffee both times we visited and the food was delicious. A good selection of cabinet food baked on the adjacent premises. Plenty of parking and sitting out areas under shade. Lovely neat gardens.

Friendly, helpful staff served our beautifully presented 3 tier cake stand laden with inviting creations. Scones and accompaniments on the lowest tier were superb but moving up to the middle tier proved disappointing as the brioche was a little dry and appeared to have been refrigerated - it was cold and gave the impression that it was not freshly made....

Went for a girls High Tea and although the food was lovely & well presented, the delivery requires some improvement to suit the occasion. No tablecloth, tea served in leaky old style cafe steel teapots that do not pour properly, crockery/cutlery were everyday cafe ware ie white cups, plates etc. Requires some dainty, (maybe floral) crockery, better teapots etc especially...

Hi Nancy, thank you for taking the time to put down this review. We have noted all your comments - it seems all the new items we ordered must have come in just a day or so after your visit. We are a rural rustic Café and our High Tea has everything made in-house by our staff only - delicious,... More
