So nice

Excellent food, great range, superb coffee, great ambience. An ideal place to catch up with friends. My favourite is to do lunch there on a Sunday, sitting upstairs watching the world go by while you sip coffee and browse the Sunday paper. Top venue.

Was here for a girly get together. They couldn't take bookings if you just wanted desserts which was a shame but I was assured being a Tuesday evening it wouldn't be a problem and it wasn't. It was the first time I had been back since moving to current venue. It's as great as it ever was. Although we were... More

Good selection of deserts available. Price is a bit dearer though, but if you need a real treat it's nice place. And the desert was yum.

Good variety on the menu and the food was beautifully presented and tasted fabulous. It was a busy night with a mix of locals and tourists staying the adjoining hotel, but the service was prompt and very friendly. We were seated upstairs - maybe the downstairs tables are little disconnected from the main restaurant - so book and ask to... More

Last visit was at Peterborough Street before the earthquake. Back then desserts was the highlight of the menu....still is. Pity you can't just come in for dessert and coffee but the restaurant wants you to eat a pretty average main meal first. Go for an entree then dessert!

I went with my wife just for desserts. Is a really nice place, at a really convenient location. We had once piece of cake and a coffee, and both of them where really good. The cake was a chocolate mousse with something, and it was amazing. They have lots of options gluten free (my wife is coeliac). I will come... More
