Best is probably the location and outdoor seating. Food is ok, nothing extremely good but not bad. Staff is friendly and attentive though sometimes too fast and rushing, cleared plates even though I haven't finished eating. Would come back though.

Brunch on Sunday 16 March, not busy waited 45 mins plus for very ordinary brunch food below average. Couple just before us had finished brunch and gone 10 mins before we received ours only 4 of us and not a huge amount to cook.

It was Art Deco Parade Saturday and the crowds were building up. With comfortable pavement tables, chairs and market umbrellas attracted us to Cappadonna. The service was excellent, the coffee hot and strong (Gravity coffee is always great) and the food tasty, generous and good value for money. A popular cafe to come back to again.

Lovely sitting outside in the sun, fresh air, good food, including healthy options, nice coffee, pleasant staff, good service, even on a busy Friday. Been here before, it's reliably all round good.

In the pedestrian mall in Napier. Excellent coffee, good tucker and great service brought us back several times during our stay. Everything we had was thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommended. As 'Arnie' says: "We'll be back"

I got a flat white made with scalded milk and over an inch of froth on the top. Add to that the Belgium biscuit which was stale and was miserable on the jam and I am afraid I walked out. Left the coffee and biscuit there. Just don't need to eat that. Couldn't be bothered in complaining even. Not a... More

An unexpected day off work, a beautiful spring day and the grumblings of an empty tummy hearalded us to Cappadonna in Napier for Brunch. We have been here on a few occasions and have been satisfied everytime. Eggs are not on my list of favourite foods, but everytime we have brunch, Eggs Benedict seem to pop out of my mouth... More
