One of the best breakfasts we have had in Wellington. Great coffee and wide selection of tasty food. Nice, cosy atmosphere.

The café is located off the main road in the heart of Marsden Village and has plenty of free car-parking nearby. Although the cafés exterior décor has seen better days the staff are very polite and helpful. The "Revive" coffee was great and there was a very good range of cabinet food. There was also a good range of menu... More

I've wanted to come here for awhile but it's always been closed when I visit. Today it was open. I feel like maybe it's a place the locals love but which visitors might shy away from. It's quite small, dark and shabby inside and perhaps in the middle of winter it would be a cosy retreat and in summer it... More

I have been visiting thus cafe for some years now . It was once a really pleasant place to visit and the food was excellent. The food is still pretty good but the coffee isn't as good as it was, the staff are often rude if you dare make any small complaint. I waited fifty minutes between my coffee and... More

Tucked away in the village, they have some great 'revive' coffee and with a great range of yummy food. Came for lunch today and if we come back to the neighbourhood, will definitely be back. Great job!

Sadly despite many good reviews the hype is just that. We ordered Eggs Benedict, a coke and a coffee and the best part of the meal was the coke. The eggs were over cooked and the bacon is not good quality. The coffee was bitter and poor. Such a shame as the location is great. Overall very poor and not... More

I remember this little place from Jeremy's time, best cheese scones you could find! The new owners seems to have chosen a cheaper option for their ingredients, as I could not finish my cheese scone, after eating only a quarter of it. Their was too much baking powder, which brought a bitter and disgusting after taste to it. The coffee... More

Pretty small cafe, but enough room for a few more. The food punches above its weight. I don't usually buy pies but the ones on display looked so good I gave in. Am I glad I did! It was jam packed with a lovely meat filling, I didn't ruin it with tomato sauce like I would normally had done. Wife... More
