Great for Gluten Free

This cafe has a separate Gluten Free menu, based on the regular menu. The surprising and impressive thing for me was that the prices on the GF menu were the same as the regular one.

I can hardly remember the details, just that I was unimpressed. The espresso was good, though. I only went a month ago....? There was not much choice in the breakfast menu, as I recall. Very ordinary.

Have been here twice recently for hot drinks and cake. Good choice of cakes in the cabinet. Both times hot chocs great and the apple cake is divine. Good service and friendly staff.

the coffee is good but the pancakes seemed defrosted or something and to hide it they were drowned in a maple syrup/sugar mix that destroyed any remnant of taste. One loud group means conservation is near impossible. Thankfully Petone has choices.
