Mixed feelings about the bakery mainly because I cant see how any pie with a very small side salad can cost $16. The Lamb and Kumara Pie was heralded as the best pie in NZ so it had to be worth a try. However, mine was all Kumara with a single lamb cutlet in the top no other lamb meat to be found. So while the pastry was good the filling was a let down.
Followed this with a Raspberry cheesecake Cronut which was ok, the cheesecake topping in my opinion didn't go with the sweet cronut in particular but was ok but nothing particularly special either.
The cafe was very busy and noisy so not the most relaxing place to eat either and service was slow. I do think if a place is going to charge top price for something they need to up their game.

Great service, lovely food, well presented; and we purchased some extras to take home.
We ordered breakfast for four. It came quickly and the coffee was good too.

We had lunch at the bakery and were impressed by the service. My overseas visitors said it was one of the best meals they have had in NZ. I have diet requirements that they went out of their way to cater for. Highly recommended.

Visited recently for a late lunch and the food was yummy, had been recommended the bakery by our friends who live locally & they were spot on. The iced coffee was lush!
