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

Visiting Napier and in search of a café for lunch we came upon Cappadonna. It has a small indoor seating area and large sidewalk seating area that was vacated really quickly when it started to rain. They have a large cold cabinet of prepared savoury, sweet and salad items. As I noted in the title the jury is out on... More

We always re-visit. The food is awesome! Plenty to choose from. Exceptional quality. Nice surroundings. Music maybe a little too loud but I am sure they would have turned it down had we asked.

We had a very pleasant cuppa with good service. The place was buzzing with a wide age group which we thought was a good sign and we weren't disappointed.

All had a great breakfast, but husband's mushrooms on toast we're incredible. Very generous serves! Really charming service, giving us a few ideas on what to see around town. Food in the cabinet looked amazing too.

We stopped here for an early lunch. Service was very good. Coffee was excellent. We ordered the ham, mushroom & tomato omelette and it was beautiful. In addition to the menu, the cabinet included a wide array of food all of which looked very good. Definitely worth calling in.

This is one of my favourite places to sit and people watch! great outdoor seating in the middle of Napier and always sunny. There is a fabulous choice of food - hot and cold. A wonderful blackboard menu as well as a fully stocked cabinet of dream food - especially hugely decorated luscious cheesecakes topped with amazing decorations! (chocolates etc)... More

We had a full breakfast for $20 (most expensive one all weekend), advertised on board with middle cut bacon (the only type I eat) and Lincoln sausage, mushrooms, tomato etc. The food in the cabinets looks amazing so thought it was going to be really good. Asked for extra soft eggs for hubby but mine to be cooked enough so... More
