I've generally enjoyed the coffee at this local cafe over the years but today was not very impressed by the indifferent service. The young lady at the till did not ask, but apparently assumed I had asked for a take-out coffee. When it was ready...More

The Coffee was only average and the food a bit below average. They were very busy the day we visited but that’s no excuse. My wife had a quiche that seemed like it was from yesterday’s menu and was hardly edible. Not recommended

Had breakfast (bacon butties) here in Nov 17. Never had bacon butties like these before - absolutely wonderful! Flat White coffee came out suspiciously quickly after ordering, but tasted fine.

We ate here when we first arrived in Napier and the food has a different taste to it. I loved it (Big Breakfast) but my partner not so much (burger) It wasn't expensive and the service was fast, I would visit again

8 of us visited for lunch - extremely slow and orders mixed up & forgotten. Staff not apologetic and full of excuses which didn't stack up. Food ok when we finally got it but more than an hour between first & last meal coming out....More

Sorry to write a bad smoothie experience, but the smoothie they served to me was not good. A mixed berry smoothie should have mixed berries. There was little evidence of mixed berries in the smoothie. There was syrup (not necessary in a smoothie), and ice...More
