Good clean place with a full selection of hot and cold bakery food. We stopped here for lunch and sat outside at the provided tables to eat our orders. All was nice including sandwiches, pies, muffins and donuts. The coffee was nice and the free water provides rounded off a pleasant and affordable meal.

Top food with some indoor seating and quite a few outdoor covered tables on the street. Reasonably high prices but you get what you pay for. Very nice vegetarian pies.Great coffee. Right in the heart of Havelock North village. Very popular.

We frequent this iconic bakery every few weeks. Miss 2 takes delight in being able to point at the item she desires and get it into her hand with precision.

This Cafe is sited only a few steps from the Village Information Centre. Enjoy a Latte or two, on the sidewalk. Friendly staff and plenty of goodies to choose from.

Has this place changed hands or something? There were literally no other customers early afternoon - normally it would be buzzing. In ten years of going there, I have never been the only person there, even early morning. The three staff there today were too busy chatting to acknowledge me when I walked in. The woman who served me literally... More

Called in after a drive up to Te Mata Peak. Coffee was good & the beesting was absolutely yummy - might have to go back again before we have to go home - definitely recommend everyone try it out!

I always stop here for their gorgeous filled rolls, these guys make all their own breads. I'm fussy with filled rolls and sandwiches and don't normally buy them at bakeries but these guys food is great. Good pies, sweet treats and breads too - bakery how you remember it.

Stopped in for a quick snack. Tried their vege pie - really nice sauce and vegetable filling. The staff were really helpful in recommending local attractions/beaches. If we had more time to try their menu, we sure would have been pleased. A variety of baked breads in their cabinet.
