Had lunch today at Blah Blah Blah Dargaville. Delicious kumara and mussell chowder! I ordered a large mochaccino. Usually anywhere else I have had coffee this means the cup is bigger. Not at Blah Blah Blah! It came out in a bowl. I kid you not. The service was good. The barista was the friendliest out of all the staff.... More

The name drew us in with it being an unusual name and all. Staff were friendly enough and service was quick. I had the big breakfast and found the bacon a tad dry and the coffee bland. The selling point for the coffee was the size of the cup...it was actually a small bowl. The setting of the cafe was... More

They were busy, but didn't seem to have enough staff on. Ordered a panini and muffin. The muffin didn't taste fresh and was cold as if it had just come from fridge, the panini was bland and tasteless, was very disappointing.

Menu looked great but we both had disappointing meals. Corn fritters undercooked & bland. Both our bacons were overcooked & very chewy. Bacon buttie was a ridiculous huge serving of thick bread with two slices of bacon that got lost drowning in a sea of tomato relish. Husband didn't even attempt to eat it. Kids both had crepes & they... More

The food was really good - I had a B.L.A.T. Coffee was great. However there is something strange in this place. It is quite dark and oddly divided in two rooms. The staff was very friendly but the place is not very clean ....

Hi Jackie. I'm very, very sorry you did not enjoy your meal. After 20 years using the same bacon recipe our local butcher ceased making it and we have had to find a new supplier. The bacon is definitely not the cheap variety, we are now using a more expensive, free-range variety, but after only 2 deliveries we are still... More

Staff are friendly here. The place looks pretty scungy and dark. Walls are damaged, paint missing, knocked about. Needs a tidy up and brightening up. Coffee was good. Food took a long time to come but tasted fine.
