Food is good but the ladies there are so rude! More so the older ladies! Very abrupt and short! During peak times everyone seems a bit on edge and the atmosphere is not great. Won’t be coming back here for a while

Was visiting for business from Auckland, was recommended lush by our New Plymouth friends and I was blown away. Salmon eggs bene was divine. They give you the option of half or full which is one or two eggs and one or two hash cakes....More

Great coffee - great service and the best eggs benedict. We have never been disappointed with anything at Lush. The baked cheesecake is also divine :)

The lady who took my order on a monday afternoon was not friendly at all. Poor service throughout, probably due to the cafe being packed. Steak sandwich overdone and fat on the side not seared so inedible. Only an average cafe.

When at Centre City, Lush is always our GO TO café for fresh food, good coffee and gelato. Both the cabinet food and menu selections are always of a high standard and coffee is great!
