Fast, easy & tasty!

On the way to the airport we made a quick dash to grab a bite to eat. The kids had pies and there were no complaints there. Freshly baked bread and filled rolls were satisfying. I also had a custard-filled donut - delicious! Easy on the tummy and the pocket.

Excellent food - great selection of breads, cakes, sandwiches and savouries. Whether you on the go and purchase from the walkin service or sit down and enjoy the cafe area, the food will delight. The coffee is strong makes your hair stand on end (I only ever order a 1/2 strength). The best thing every is their hot chips, not... More

Whenever we are in New Plymouth we make a point of going here for snack lunches, cakes and bread. They have a really good selection of breads and will slice for you also. Their filled rolls are tasty and healthy. Definitely a big step up from the usual Hot Bread shop fare! Their Cafe which is around the back is... More

Yum yum yum, this little bakery has the BEST almond croissants in town. Pick up a coffee in the attached café next door and head down to the beach.

Although the bakery is an absolute favourite of mine, my friend and I decided to try the cafe, which we found terribly disappointing. First my drink came out after around 10-15 minutes which was a coke float, she did admit she poured the wrong soda, but still its about a 1 minute job. Not only that but our meals came... More

Discovered this little delight on our visit. Pastries great! Coffee good and a lovely atmosphere. Went bavk a few times. Tried $10 brekki & pancakes. Not great. Baking is better. Rather charge more and learn to make a poached egg. Pancakes over decorated and too sweet. Separate sauce next time. Recommend.

Here is the place to go for one of the great New Zealand culinary experiences. Not the fancy stuff you get at Huka Lodge or Logan Brown or the French Cafe. No, this is basic - the pie. With all the warnings we get these days about the inherent dangers of cholestrol-laden food and high sugar/salt content, there is something... More
