Great place to meet friends watch the traffic people come by. Love the savoury muffins only $3.80. Still same recipe but smaller but same quality as I can remember from living here 10years ago. Coffee can be a bit hit and miss. Good breakfast/lunch options.

Had a lovely generous serving of breakfast. Great tea and coffee. Decor not the best does need a bit of a spruce up and service a little slow. But this place has a lot of regulars and staff spend a lot of time chatting to locals while others wait. Would go back though as food was good.

This cafe is situated in the main street of Kerikeri with plenty of seating inside and out. A great selection of ready made food and an extensive blackboard menu. Food and coffee was very tasty. Staff were very pleasant and efficient. Keep up the great work.
