Stopped in on the way from Napier to Auckland. Great location on the side of the highway. The cappucino was perfect and 'hit the spot'. Service was friendly. Didn't have anything to eat but there was plenty of decent looking food available. Well worth the stop.

The coffee was perfect (had a perfectly made cappucino), the food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxing after a long drive.This cafe lives up to the... More

Good stop off on the main road with plenty of easy parking. Tried the bacon and egg pie which was very good. More importantly, I needed a coffee and that was very good as well. Range of cabinet foods. Staff very good and friendly. Recommended overall

Always a warm welcome from the friendly staff. Good selection of food, and I've always been very happy with the quality. The coffee is also delicious, but is sometimes a bit slow coming out, particularly when they are busy. Shop and facilities are spotless.

Met my daughter here for a quick, light lunch on a winters day. Sjaan and Linda gave us a very friendly welcome. Lovely girls. Big range of food in the cabinet ready to go, plus a good menu to order from. Our drinks arrived very quickly. Another perfect iced mocha and cool art on the hot chocolate. Our food was... More

Was visiting my folks today and took them here for breakfast. The cafe is very new, clean and staff were really friendly. Coffee was large - like really large! And yet it still tastes fantastic, these folks know how to make a great drinking coffee. Breakfast was yummy, cooked perfectly and well priced. A lovely spot for a stop when... More

I've never been disappointed with the food here. Both what's in the cabinets and their cooked menu. The staff are amazing, once they brought our coffees out with our names sculptured on the top. The restrooms are particularly cleaned, and checked often. My only gripe is with the building. It's so noisy inside. It hurts my ears. Other than that... More

There is a good variety of tasty food here. A little pricey for a cafe but not excessive, and the coffee is good (I know, you expect that at a franchise, but I've been disappointed elsewhere!!). The menu is accurate and available, and the case food is tempting and beautifully presented. Staff are very nice and helpful, and very patient... More
