Good Saturday brunch

Went with a table of 8 (4 kids and 4 adults) for brunch at 10am. Good fast service, good food, kids loved the donuts, friendly staff and lovely setting. Would definitely go again - we were recommended this place by at least 3 different people - can see why :)

We had lunch at Mister D's - very tasty lamb croquets - highly recommended. Followed these up with donuts - we should have shared a single donut as they are quite filling. Excellent coffee. This is our favourite café in Napier

They have the best donuts, quite a noisy setting when full, but that just adds to the hum of the place. Family Friendly

We had breakfast at Mister D's. We order the coffee, the granola and donut with jelly. The service was fast and efficient, paying after the meal was easy and the food was excellent. We thought there was a nice atmosphere that invited you to linger and enjoy the coffee and converrrsation.

As the old adage goes "eat where the people are". This place was packed on the Friday night we popped in to make a reservation and it was packed again the following Saturday night. We started with some pre-dinner drinks in rear bar Monica Loves which you can access from the side lane. The bar and restuarant are connected by... More

The great atmosphere and wait staff of one of our favourite restaurants was let down by the food. The Fried Bread was a complete disaster. Totally over cooked. The lamb must have been made from a poor cut of meat. It was stringy and tough. The clams were well over cooked and rubbery. We did complain and our criticism was... More

Went there on the recommendation of a local and we weren't disappointed! We were staying in Napier for the Art Deco weekend and looking for somewhere different to eat. Shared a table with another coupe, on our mutual suggestion since they were busy, and had a very entertaining evening with a couple of Kiwis! Food and service was excellent and... More

After reading the menu there was some discussion of leaving. The staff was not used to helping visitors appreciate the menu. Overall the food was good but not outstanding. Maybe a donut would have made it all better.
