We went here for a late lunch and decided just to have an ice cream. Friendly staff. Looked at the menu and decided to get a dessert ice cream instead. The pancakes and berries and the rum ice cream sundae was divine. Definitely would recommend and return.

My wife and I pop in for a coffee and cake when we are up town. Lovely sausage rolls and as fairly regular customers, the owner knows that I have mine cold with yummy relish. Lovely atmosphere and great service and just an all round place to have a break. Top cafe for us.

Gelato occupies a prime position in our wee town in this remote part of New Zealand, but there's nothing provincial about the service, the presentation or the food itself. Today's visit was for a meeting, and all I wanted was an iced chocolate - one of the best I've had, artistically created and not too sweet. Simply perfect. A great place for meeting up with friends and colleagues, or just to watch the world go by.
