Took mum out for coffee, service was a little frosty, friand was stale, coffee average, fly on scones on the counter. Should have known better than to choose empty cafe along from much busier establishments.

Just called in for a quick takeaway morning tea.....I wish I had gone elsewhere. The girl that served me quite obviously doesn't enjoy her job by her manner. Ordered 2 coffees and 2 scones. Had to ask for the scones to be warmed and buttered....More

Good Friday and not a lot open. Stopped here for a late lunch. Slow counter service. Food and drinks were even slower. Finished our food before we got our coffee. Food ànd coffee were very average.

Love this menu! Delicious food and where everybody goes for a freak shake. Great cafe for brunch with a couple friends. Probably not a place for a large group of people as there is limited seating on a busy day.

Called in for a mid-morning coffee in the Havelock Village on a lovely day. The whole street is jumping with customers. We found the last outside table, cleared the detritus off it ourselves and one of us went inside to order. The place is full...More

Went here for lunch and I was keen to try one of their special shakes but nothing gluten free. Had a good selection of canine food but gluten free products right next to non gluten free so cross contamination too easy to risk eating anything....More
