Great little cafe hidden in central New Plymouth, good range of cabinet food, Gelato and order menu plus at a reasonable price. And seriously the best Egg Benedict I’ve had anywhere, ever!

Late lunch at Lush on the recommendation of a friend. Ordered a salad combo, fries, a flat white & English Breakfast tea for one. Service was fast and friendly. The food and drinks were great. Enjoyed having a leisurely holiday lunch in cosy surroundings.
