Lovely seated outside under canopy on a nice Autumn day, coffee great and arrived very quickly followed by our wonderful and tasty Whitebait Sammie. Best news No surcharge on Easter Monday. Place was packed and good food and service will win over customers, no need to say anything else.

You can go and buy your gardening supplies or just go for a coffee and a slice. It's a charming little cafe inside Palmer's Garden World. Nice coffee and a good selection of sweet things.

I really enjoyed my creamy mushroom and bacon toast lunch, with three small pieces of toast. It would have been nicer if there were six pieces of toast instead, as three pieces were definitely not enough to soak all the creamy mushroom provided.

Had a good range of breakfasts. HAd a very tasty eggy breakfast and the eggs bene was good value. Coffee very good. The best thing is that you don't have to wait long for your order. Don't know how they do it when the place is far from empty.

There were five of us. The decor was quaint. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. The person at the cashier was very good and made sure she asked the right questions to get the order right. Definitely worth a visit when in Miramar.

Taken here by friends during a visit to the city. Great little place. Usual kiwi friendliness from the staff. Good breakfast menu, less choice for lunch unless you want a bigger lunch and not a snack. Good choice of cakes etc. Excellent strong coffee. Seating area was hot but served by a strong fan. Attached to a nice little garden... More

I was told to come and try this cafe-so on the way to the airport we had such a nice lunch. Lemon couscous with halloumi, great soup of the day, hash veggie and bacon stack and corn fritters. Yummy smoothies with unusual flavours like plum. Good coffee. Nice seating near the plant area. Will come back for sure.

The café have a wonderful range of cakes but if you love Pinky chocolate bars, then you'll love the Pinky Cake! The cake had a few layers... chocolate, caramel, pinky, chocolate and the base!! DEVINE!!!
