Ate lunch here with my wife in December 2016. Had the large Diavalo pizza with 2 ginger beers for $30 NZ. Great pizza that left us more than full. I shouldn't have eaten that last slice. Good staff. Very clean operation. Outside tables from which to watch the Bohemian garbed locals slide on by. I didn't expect much when we... More

Went out for dinner to see if we can recommend this for our guests. This restaurant offers great options for Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten free food. Unfortunately we needed to wait a bit too long for the food and the music became more irritating after the longer wait. The waitress was very nice and came back quickly to inform us.... More

Ham and pineapple pizza on thin crust was perfect. Loved the murals on the entrance walls! Lots of character, and good food too! Seemed to be also doing a booming takeaway business.

We spent 2 nights in Takaka the week before last and had the pleasure of eating here for 2 breakfasts and one dinner. I loved the whole vibe of the place. The staff were lovely; very honest when they made a mistake with our order which goes a long way with me and the food was fabulous. Fresh and delicious.... More

Whether you are Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free or Omnivore, you will be sure to find something on the menu which appeals. The atmosphere may be somewhat hippie casual, but they take their food seriously. We arrived having been driving much of the day. We just wanted something tasty and comforting before returning to our accommodation for an early night. We were... More

Had breakfast of eggs benedict with spinach and mushrooms with sourdough toast and it was excellent. You can tell the ingredients are of good quality such as the free range eggs. Nice laid back atmosphere, imagine their pizzas are good but unfortunately didn't stay in the area long enough to try one!

Try the excellent popeye pizza with spinach, cashew and feta. Great value, good coffee, perfect place for people watching in Takaka. Casual and relaxed, as it should be in Takaka.

Had the salmon (Anatoki salmon of course) salad. Husband had burrito. The thing I liked the most is your kids menu. It's hard to get a place that caters for children other than stock standard fried foods. My daughter had the kids platter. Apple, carrot, cheese, hummus, banana, cheese, crackers. Was awesome

Came here with our three small children. Quite family friendly with sand pit out back and toys inside. Service was efficient and friendly. Food is mainly pizzas which the children loved and some other options such as very hot and tasty burritos. Would recommend.

Don't be fooled the interior of the Wholemeal Cafe just up the road. The Dangerous Kitchen beats it hands down for selection, looks and tastiness of the food. We came here three times and it was excellent. A bit cold inside when the day was cold and raining, but again food was worth it. I had the Popeye pizza slice... More
