Great coffee, awesome smiles, good strong service. This is another cafe I used to visit frequent before our overseas stint. Wow they've done an amazing re-fit and looks sooo good. The out door seating well thought out with large pleasing umbrellas. Choice of style of seating inside, with comfy sofas added if you just want to kick back and relax. Our coffees good but if you go for a small this only uses one shot, in our opinion it really needs two shots. This was added at no extra charge to us. Our savoury mini quiche was delicious, Another bonus it's still on Bartercard. We will most certainly be visiting again, highly recommend you visit. This cafe has exciting cabinet food, fresh, delicious and this is accompanied with a strong menu.

We popped in for lunch with extended family and children. We enjoy bringing the kids here so that they can play on the playground outside and we can relax and enjoy the company we are with. Win, win!
We were surprised by a new menu this time and it looked really good! The only thing a number of us were sad about was ........
Where did the Kumara Fritters go???
We loved them! So hoping they will consider doing a "specials" board in the future with that as an option.
We had a range of meals, from eggs benny, chicken and pulled pork burgers through to big breakfasts, and all were nicely presented and tasted good.
The coffees here are brilliant!!! Consistent in taste and quality!
A fantastic barista here.
On this Occassion the staff were very friendly, obliging and appeared happy which was lovely as this is the only thing that isn't always as consistent as we would like.
All in all, definitely worth the visit - especially for parents with active kids and coffee lovers.
