This cafe had lovely decor. The service was fine. The menu quite good. We all found our meals ok but not great. It's in a good central location.

Both meals were beautifully cooked, the steak was perfectly done to order and good value with added garlic butter. Gluten free options gave the open chicken sandwich a change up, and Moxies has a very good range of options for food intolerances. Finished off with beautiful dessert slices. Service was great from Andy! Thanks Moxies for another good experience.

Palmerston North was not originally a part of the itinerary for our NZ trip so we had not had a chance to do much research ahead of time. We asked around for a good breakfast place and the this cafe was highly recommended so we decided to give it a shot. This is where I was introduced to, what turns... More

We have had good meals here before, but this time we popped in for an evening coffee and cake. Service was good, and there was a good selection of cakes and savories. The cafe seems to be as popular as ever, and we found the whole experience to be enjoyable.

So many great options for those with food intolerances / allergies. And its YUM:) Love the salmon every time, and willing to change the menu to suit.

Returned after a 9 months overseas and found the same great service and food on offer from a helpful and friendly staff. Still doing some of the best Flat White coffee in town. The food is innovative and well priced. Will be regular customers till we go away again.

This is a very popular restaurant/cafe for breakfast. We have had many family and friends meet up there. There is plenty of parking at the Harvey Norman which is 2 minutes walk away and the food and coffee is perfectly acceptable. There are quite a few cafes and restaurants on George street, including Cafe Cuba at the end of George... More

We visited on a week night for a quick meal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We sat at a big table with plenty of room, and it was great for conversation. Moxies have an excellent gluten free menu, and on this occasion they even checked whether I was coeliac or not. My cajun chicken salad was very fresh... More

My husband and I have often haunted Moxies and it used to always be our go to. We have just started going back, maybe new owners? Love the new look, but food has suffered. Big breakfast used to be a excellent feed for a bloke, today it looked below part, came with 1 piece of toast, not even any butter... More
