We came here for lunch on a Sunday and had the vegetarian panini and the omelette with salad. Both were delicious, the salad is a personal favourite and never disappoints. Coffee and smoothies also delicious and the service was fast and polite.

Terrible service. The lady who served us for takeaway coffee and food was rude. My husband asked for a flat white and if it came with two shots, he was promptly told "how else would it come". Why be in the service industry if you have no time to smile and thank your customers. The coffee was awful far too... More

As an ex local I was excited to visit one of my old favourites while I was back home. Gosh what a change. I went there once to get a takeaway pie and my favourite vanilla custard square. Let's say the custard square was the only thing eaten. The pie was advertised as a steak pie, not steak and vegetable.... More

It took the staff quite some time to get our friends food out who ordered at the same time as us but it then took another half an hour for our food to come out and when it did it was very average as food goes. My seafood chowder was revolting from the first mouthful. The vegetables were not cooked.... More

Worst service I have ever had! I have been to the cafe a few times and have had minor issues every time. The woman behind the counter was rude, food was cold and over priced. Such a shame, this is a nice venue how ever I think the staff need to pull their heads in. Would NOT recommend!

Friend and I met for lunch in the sun at Mapua today. We both ordered the seafood chowder which was highly spoken of by the man serving us and on the menu it boasted masses of seafood and not a shell in sight......well I have to say there was hardly any fish in sight either! The veg were still crunchy... More

I needed to have an extra shot to my coffee (50 cents please) to make it taste like coffee. My coffee mate needed a triple shot for a strong latte. I have never had a bad coffee in NZ before and was very disappointed as in previous years the coffee at the Naked Bun was great. Perhaps they have a... More

This is located beside the tree-lined centre of the village. The service is good but the food is very expensive compared to other places in Mapua.
