I had to wait awhile as I ordered a cooked lunch. Most people picked up food from the café display. I enjoyed an iced coffee while my food cooked. Its only two weeks ago but I can't remember what I ordered (I think it was mushrooms on toast) It was a friendly place, a great place for people watching and... More

The queue was insufferably slow because the place is understaffed. Pile of old newspapers to wade through. I know it's adjacent to a garden centre but to have sparrows flying about inside the cafe, eating leftovers from the tables and leaving droppings on chairs that customers sit on is both unhygenic and unacceptable.

Flies are a nuisance at most but while trying to eat and watching a cluster of them buzzing on the window in front of us tells me that window isn't clean. This then leads me to wonder what else isn't clean? But the food was it's usual deliciousness.

A great place to take a break from all the DIY jobs. Part of the Mitre 10 Mega complex- you'll invariably take a look at the latest tools, outdoor furniture, or fantastic plant nursery on the way to or from the cafe. While it isn't a "destination cafe" for special occasions it's a 'go to' for a weekend coffee and... More

Offers so much and delivers so little... It has limited food and what they do have looks mass produced and uninviting. We just wanted coffee and cake or a scone but they had nothing, just a meagre offering of biscotti. Sadly the coffee was weak and cool so it was a big disappointment all round.

We were hugely pleased with the quality of the vegetarian puffy omelette that was served promptly in pleasant surroundings No hesitation in recommending to others. The coffee a treat too!

I went for lunch with a group of friends, and because we were many, had to sit outside the cafe in the garden centre. Very pleasant surroundings, if rather noisy from the children playing on the climbing equipment nearby.

Consistently very good coffee and meals. Very good value. Can be very busy at times but the staff cope quite well, worth being a little patient. Very nice outlook onto garden centre.

Columbus is always extremely busy which makes the visits quite chaotic and not very relaxing however it is a testament to the service, food and drinks provided which are always at a high standard.

Their food was really quite good and they made a good cuppa coffee. The cake and slices we had were really delicious but. .... we did find it a tad bit expensive.
