Streetside café

Streetside café in the pedestrianised area with outdoor seating and windows flung wide. Excellent Caesar salad and fettucine carbonara –these girls worked really hard and it seemed non-stop.

Don't spoil your morning - find another cafe in the area, with friendly service, good coffee and freshly made food.

Stopped for a morning snack and so glad we did. The range of cakes and slices made this a sweet tooth's heaven! The coffee is really good too. If you're in the vicinity, eat here, you won't be disappointed.

Great food at great prices. The location in the mall was just the spot to sit in the afternoon sun and enjoy a cold drink and a little something to eat.

Oh wow, the cakes, the food, and the adorable options of drinks too. But let's get back to the cakes and let's celebrate those crazy cheesecakes! Definitely worth a multiple visit.

Good coffee, good food. Friendly staff. The omelette delicious and so was the Creamy Mushrooms. Only down side it was a bit of a trek to the nearest toilets.

We often have lunch here and have never had a criticism to make. Our last visit on 27th Jan was no exception. The food and service was excellent. The food for sale is well presented and of excellent quality. If you are looking for a first class cafe in Napier give Cappadonna a go, we are sure you will not... More

I have been working in Napier this year, most recently in November. Cappadonna has become a favourite for business lunches - just great food, and really good, friendly and quick service. Recommended.

Went here with friends and was initially gobsmacked by the delicious looking fare in the display cabinet. There is a multitude of mouth watering cake there......BUT......this was actually the second time I've been.......hence this average review because both times the cakes were as dry as bone and I only had a couple of bites from each. Unbelievable. Staff were good.... More
