This place was buzzing mid-week. Coffee was hot and strong, just the way I like it. Fast service. Highly recommended.

Have stopped here a few times and staff always friendly and food great. Nice as it's a little out of town as well. Can't comment on the coffee as I don't drink it as a rule.

Great place to meet friends half way between Hastings and Napier. Food is great and very tasty. The prices are reasonable. No wonder it’s so popular!

Stopped for a coffee and it was great. A busy wee place and it is small, but most took their's away, so not such an issue.

Love the area where you can sit out the back, it's lovely in summer. A great place to pop in on your way to napier or into hastings to get a quick take away coffee.
