We popped in here for lunch after visiting the garden centre last Sunday. It was well patronised but by no means full. It was quite windy, so not so many people wanting to sit outside, but we still walked straight to a table inside. Disappointingly we put in our order and then were told just before paying that there would... More

I've visited cafe Thyme a number of times and love sitting in the outdoor area for brunch on a sunny day. There's lots of birds and trees around, and it's quite protected from the wind. It's child and dog friendly, and I've always found the service to be warm and welcoming. The food is always so fresh and you get... More

Love this place for meeting up with friends/family for brunch, lunch or afternoon tea. Everything I've ever eaten here has been delicious. The staff are friendly and quick with getting drinks and food to you. They are pet friendly too, which works out great for my friends who have a little dog. You can eat inside or sit outside. The...

This is such a great spot for a quick lunch. The cabinet food looked good and I had a salmon quiche with fresh salad. The coffee was strong and hot. Nice on a sunny day to sit outside

Really friendly fast service with great eggs. Ive eaten here previously and the food is always consistent. The coffee is also great. Pop next door to buy plants for your garden on the way home. Lovely outdoor seating on a sunny day

Excellent coffee and cafe food. It's not fine dining, but they do quality cafe fare just so well it might as well be. Everything they use is good quality and well sourced (delicious bacon). Prices are quite reasonable. Service is great - very attentive. They have a excellent team and it's actually a pleasure to see such great team work.... More

Great little cafe in an old house, with a front deck, and a rear courtyard, which both get the sun. Small menu and cabinet food, but great food and coffee. I go regularly.

Visiting from Nelson. My Brother knew this place and me there with our Mum. Lovely spot and a nice day so we sat outside. I had eggs Benedict which was very good, the eggs were beautiful. Mum had pumpkin soup and enjoyed it very much. Bro had omelet which was huge. Staff were warm and friendly.

We went to this Café for a birthday brunch, we had made a time and booked a table for 10. When we arrived we were 10 minutes late, mainly because we couldn't get a car park close by so had to park and walk some distance. one of the young staff said they were not pleased we were late and... More
