Tiny cafe with lots of energy. Great coffee. Small selection of options for breakfast. We stopped in for take away coffees each morning we were in Mount M.

If you're like me - exercising early morn, there's one place you can be guaranteed a great coffee at 6 am, and that's at Luca. Supreme coffee blend, either to stay or go, Dan & his team will set you up for the day. Cheers guys & girls ☕️

A local favourite! The coffee here lives up to it’s name, it’s a very good cup of coffee!! Great interior and location right on Main Street. We couldn't go anywhere without locals stopping us to confirm this was their favourite cafe. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone! Some of the best coffee we had in New Zealand....
