OMG the Lamb Croquettes with pickled zucchini and capsicum sales were to die for! This place hasn't lost an iota of its spunk since it has opened its doors

Lucky enough to see Kim and Dusty live when we were having dinner there. we had a large collection of starters with the two of us. The liver parfait was excellent so was the baked goats cheese. Good atmosphere and good service. Really nice Australian shiraz

We came for lunch with our 2yr old son and some friends. Service was prompt, friendly and they do well to create a relaxed atmosphere. Food took a little while to come but our son was kept busy with a fluffy and a toy box filled with toys and books. Yummy iced choc and the salad special was fresh, tasty... More

This funky little cafe gives the impression that you are about to embark on something special. However I haven't found this to be the case. I've visited 3 times now and today will be my last. I arrived around 11:00 on a Tuesday so the cafe was reasonably quite, yet still took almost 20 minutes for someone to ask what... More

Came here for burger night- The burgers were awesome! I was tempted to order more but knew how full I was and decided to be wise. The heaters were going, customers of different sorts were all smiling and laughing away enjoying their food and drink. Even the lemon water I had was super squeezed with lemon- I'm a lemon water...

We called into this place on our way back to Wellington last night and had a fabulous meal. I phoned them and booked a table and said we would be there in 20 minutes and what a great spontaneous decision that was! The staff are just fabulous and obviously love their jobs and love working together. They were very helpful... More

Love the casual atmosphere, very popular with the locals. Hard to get a table in the weekend. Great menu for brunch or lunch.

We hadn't been to this cafe for a few years. Its very rustic and offers an old fashion style which is great to enjoy. It also offers free meals to under 12s (with some rules) on certain days Isn't it great to see such a nice approach to looking after the local community. The food was excellent, environment vibrant and... More
