Decor was nice. There is an area out the back. Coffee was nice and strong. We both had the eggs benny with ham. It was ok but nothing special. Bubble and squeak could have been crispier and the ham was nothing special.

Lovely food would have liked to order a smoothie but the half hour wait time was excessive and we were disappointed so ended up with table water that was warm!!

We visited this great little coffee shop everyday over our 5 day stop in Mount Manganui. The coffee was excellent and catered to the varying needs of our group, offering soy, nut milk and dairy. The cakes and biscuits looked amazing and our group was pleased with the raw treats they tasted over the holiday. The breakfast dishes were generous... More

Visited on a rainy day and what a find, excellent coffee and the Carrot cake? Jeez what a size so we called in the next 3 days just to make sure it was OK. Honest folks try this place for food satisfaction. Great staff, once they understood my accent ad I was speaking slowly. Enjoy!!

Got the Lolly Cake for my little guy, and a blueberry coconut smoothie to share. There weren't any seats available so we wandered down the road to eat on a bench and I practically scoffed the salted caramel thing -... More

Honestly once you get your coffee hot Chico and food you won't be disappointed. The biggest problem you will have is deciding what to eat this time. You have to go back again because it is all sooooo yum to look at and smell that you'll want to taste it all. Delish!

This cafe can't be beat for their muffins, cakes and anything sweet. It is very busy but there is seating in the back. The soup, salads and everything else is also very good.
