Sorry to write a bad smoothie experience, but the smoothie they served to me was not good. A mixed berry smoothie should have mixed berries. There was little evidence of mixed berries in the smoothie. There was syrup (not necessary in a smoothie), and ice and delicious. But this is only one small item they serve and maybe other experiences... More

We had a visit to Napier recently and surprised how big the choices were at Cappadonna. The food on the shelves had much to offer and make choices hard because of the quality and look. The value was outstanding and the setting in the center of the city was just the right place to relax.

Came on 11th Jan - ordered chicken & plum filo roll. Was halfway through before I found any chicken - once found flavours were good but so little chicken - very disappointing for $7.95.

I normally wouldn't bother with a review I just wouldn't go back but I think it was the attitude of the staff that irritated me. I know it was late in the day and all I wanted was a juice to quench my thirst. The cakes looked OK in the refrigerated cabinet and there were people both inside and out.... More

Stopped in for lunch, ordered as two groups with, fries, salads, kids toasties and cheese cake. The cheese cake arrived after about 5 minutes with drinks following a few minutes later. The salads and toasties then took another 20 minutes with the fries another 10 minutes later. The cheesecakes were very nice with the rest being pretty average. We would... More

The display case has you at a first look. It is mouth watering. The cakes and cheesecakes look delicious. The coffee is strong and tasty and with the cheescake I was so full. I highly recommend this one for a brunch or snack

We just ordered the dish of the day at 13:02 and waited, waited, waited. When asked the waiter told us that it was no longer available and suggested a replacement as they were short of buns in the kitchen. We waited waited waited. In the meantime, we received our coffee and our desert, complete nonsense since we were still waiting... More

Friendly staff, prompt service. Big breakfast was yum, my wife had the pancakes with banana, bacon and maple syrup and an iced chocolate she said she would have it again. Nice to sit in the sunshine and eat.

Plenty of choices, suited for mid-morning and mid-afternoon dining, though they also cater for breakfast i think but not sure as I haven't been there for one. Love their cake especially the chocolate mousse. Choices of pasta and good coffee.

Thank Eonlight
