Sit outside on a sunny day and enjoy a flat white with the Eggs Benjamin... You won't be disappointed. Great start to the morning, and the staff are super friendly. Fantastic ambiance, great food and killer coffee! A trip to Napier is not complete without a stop at Groove Kitchen Espresso.

This is an odd place with large DJ decks but no music. The food seems to be treating the diner to something different but I end up feeling like I just wanted it to be more simple, with more sauce.

Went there after reading the reviews. The coffee was good. The service could have done with a smile. The eggs were cooked well.

I hadn't been here since it was the Old Flame many years before, so very new to me. I had brunch. It had a great menu, excellent service and the best chai latte I've had in Hawkes Bay. I will certainly return.

Every time we've been, the Eggs Benedikt were always beautiful. On the mark. Now I see they've got some new Egg breakfasts. Most go and try them out. The coffees there are fabulous too.
