I came here with a friend and we decided on having brunch. The coffee came out and was delicious. We both decided we would try the "world famous eggs benny", with a title like that the expectation is that it's going to be sensational, right!? Well to be fair, we both absolutely agreed that it was the best eggs benny... More

We love coming here for lunch and have not been disappointed yet. Eggs bene is the best for miles since it's on a potato rosti not bread or toast! Yum! They also do fabulous coffee with a sweet on the side - great touch and the best iced mochas! Yum yum yum! Service is generally good. Some staff could be... More

Fantastic smiles great service, a wonderful choice of fresh cabinet food also a good strong menu to choose from. However the coffee was quite bitter for my taste buds not pleasuring to my palate. I would visit again perhaps choosing another hot beverage.

I was taken to Lush by my son as he told me they had the best eggs bene ever when they were last in New Plymouth. This is my No 1 breakfast when out. Well he was not wrong! The presentation was perfect with crunchy kumara twirls on the top and the hash browns were crunchy and made with real... More

Very busy. Shame there's no views as its in the mall but it's always popular. Recommend the eggs Benedict - at last someone who serves it on potato Rosti and not bread or muffin! Please don't change it as its delicious! Always great coffee and usually not a huge wait. Service is usually good.

Came here for brunch and the eggs bene were to die for. Both my husband and I had them and he also agreed they were amazing. Coffee was also great.

Saw a bold advert on the blackboard by the front door - Bacon and Kumera soup. Made our order for three meals,one of them the soup, paid and sat to wait. Twenty minutes later the waitress comes over and says , "Were you informed there is no bacon and kumera soup?" I said no, we were not. I ordered poached... More

Absolutely amazing eggs bene!! Perfection. Also have amazing sorbet options which is awesome as there's not many places that have nice dairy free desserts. Friendly staff.
