Okay food, good variety. The service was a bit slow, but there was only one person in the kitchen. The cafe food looked fresh but opted to order from the eat-in menu. The chef was adaptable with my order, but at an extra cost. There is not too much competition so this cafe is a bit more expensive than others.... More

Very expensive for where it is situated. It took awhile for coffee but the custard squares delicious.

It is tasty food, and the place is so popular, with seating both inside and outside. Convenient to all at Waipapa Junction. And a bonus is that... More

The food is well presented, but the flavors are too bland, also I do not like the coffee. Reminds me too much of food in England.

Very pleased with new management. Keeping up the high standard MellieJoanz was known for. Good service, great coffee, and yummy food. Fish and chips the best!

Ordered chips for the first time since purchased by new owners. Chips were crispy and tasted really good. Was my favourite takeaways in the area before, guaranteed to remain so!
