Top of town Halo is right next door to an old church. The service was excellent, food was great. I was considering the breakfast burrito until I saw how big it was. It would be enough for breakfast and lunch.

We dropped into Halo cafe for coffee & were not disappointed. The cafe is located in Earl Street next door to St Peters church. The cafe offers inside & outside dining options for breakfast or lunch. We enjoyed our coffee & the pleasant setting.

At Halos today for breakfast. Bustling and full of happy customers. Quick service, friendly staff, great coffee and food - they get it right every time.

After reading good things about Halo, I was keen to give it a try. Cute little cafe with nice decor, however I found the staff to be disinterested. They weren't rude, just seemed like they'd rather be somewhere else. My order was taken promptly but...More
