Ate here with a friend,view is lovely and coffee good however I ordered corn fritters expecting them to be freshly made instead to be surprised with the one that was on display, the fritter itself didn't contain much corn or flavour at all, instead it was doughy and dense! Ergh and it was topped off with some old microwaved bacon... More

The venue is interesting, overlooking the river. The food is always good, and a reasonable price. Service is friendly and efficient.

Had our lunch here while our car was on display. Food and hot drinks were nice but quite slow in coming. I realise that the town was busy, but it would have been of no surprise to them. Maybe another staff member or two could have helped the situation. Pleasant surroundings. It was lovely and clean as was their toilet... More

I had Lunch with my friend on Sunday and the food was very nice but there is a very strange smell in the café which I find every time I go there and the toilets were not very clean, my friend turned around and walked back out of them!

A second visit this month did nothing to our first impression of this inner-city café. The venue is great, with indoor and outdoor seating, all with a view of a small stream and lots of concrete. There is an all-day menu with basic selections (BLAT, breakfasts, etc). Additional printed selections include 'savoury mince on toast" and the soup of the... More

We tend to go here of an afternoon as many of the cafés in NP tend to be winding down after 2pm. The problem with this place as mentioned by another reviewer is the service. We have had excellent service the last couple of times but also shockingly poor service. On one specific occasion, some of our food was served... More

We were looking for somewhere to have a late lunch and somewhere to sit in the sun as the breeze off the sea was quite cool . The terrace at Espresso suited the bill. They had a great selection of wraps and salads. Prices were reasonable and service was great. Recommended.

This has become a favourite when visiting New Plymouth because of its location, outlook and good food and coffee. They also tend to be open when other cafes are closed- we were most recently there on New Year's Day, and were thus saved from the food court at the mall. It is easy to park nearby, and there is a...

good value, good food, nice to sit outside if weather permits, good setting. Menue is good but does not change that much, consistent though, not had bad food there ever.
