Lovely position

We had an excellent coffee here in the morning then visited again for lunch after visiting the Naval Museum. Lunch was less successful as 3 of our 4 meals arrived and after a long wait we enquired about the 4th meal only to find the order was lost. It turns out that this had happened previously to... read more

We walked along here from Devonport ferry terminal. It's a lovely spot with a nice view of the harbour. The prices were fairly reasonable for the area and food served. We had crab cakes and they were delicious, we followed this with kapiti ice creams which were only $3.50. Would definitely recommend.

Great location lovely to sit and watch the kids on the playground. Outlook superb. Coffee excellent, ice-cream yummy. Only one tall staff member was calm and the lady in the kitchen smiled at us but that was it. The staff were jostling for space, two of them were arguing - off putting - the timing was out delivery and service... More

Reasonable prices, great service, and good food. We went to lunch 2 days in a row. Residents of all ages and families all frequent the cafe and it is conveniently located next to navel museum. It's a neighborhood place which is fun to be a part of.

The food was over priced and very poor tasting. The milkshake had no flavour and service was poor. Our table was covered in news papers and no effort was made to removed these.

I guess most people who go here are drawn to the Naval Museum, but if you are just having a stroll by the harbour this cafe has plenty of outdoor seating, decent enough cafe food and drinks, and is next to a nice little beach if you fancy a dip.

Lunch today, arrived at 12:15 to be told kitchen was backed up and food would be 30 minutes. Decided to order a couple of pies from the cabinet instead as we didn't have time. Waiting nearly an hour to get the pies as a result of "oven malfunction". So ultimately pies were heated in microwave and came out soggy. No... More

Good cafe with wide range of foods. Coffee is good. Great location, plenty of parking. One can walk out on the wharf and view the boats going by. Next to the Navy Museum which is worth a look as well.

Had my very first mince and egg here and loved it! It does get really busy, but I just make sure that i go outside of peak hours.

Lovely area and nice staff but the food was less than what would expect. Magic surrounding and nice clients with many well behaved dogs outside. Food was well presented was terrible. We had four different dishes but not one was nice. Prices were low but more bucks for better quality would serve the business better. Squid looked nice but was... More
