Went for a lunch with two friends and we all loved the food. I had the Barista breakfast and it was perfect. Waitress was friendly and helpful. They also have some great artwork on the wall to look out while you eat. My only slight issue is that they really missed the mark with the coffee. It just didn't taste... More

We used Trip Advisor for "best coffee in Palmerston North". This cafe was high in the ratings. Unfortunately, the coffee was not good and the normal large cup size was $5.00. That is more expensive than top cafes in Auckland.

Visited Barista for a meal, prior to going to an evening show. Told the wait staff that we will need our meals quickly as we were on a short time frame. Nothing was a problem. The meals arrived quickly and were delicious. Great to see a variety of Gluten Free options available. Thank you Barista for great service and food.... More

Amazing food with lots of choice for anyone with food allergies. Gluten free especially well catered for. The eye fillet was excellent, cooked to perfection. Other meals looked well put together and there were not complaints from among our party.

On a recommendation we went to the Barista for dinner on Saturday night. Though busy we didn't have long to wait for drinks and dinner. The wait staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was excellent and there was a good variety of choices (including Gluten Free options). We will definitely return for another meal.

Went very early on a Thursday morning, 8.05am and the place had just opened. I was first taken by the warm welcome, instant offer of coffee and direction to a table, great start. I had missed the enormous mural until I turned to my left!!! Fantastic, great to stare at and stretch the imagine whilst waiting for coffee. A work... More

Good coffee, great food, really good cabinet food for the late dinners, and a warm (sometimes a bit loud) atmosphere! Highly recommended for a quick bite to eat!

My wife and I meet our friends for brunch in Palmerston North and the cafe we had organised to go to was full so we decided to try barista and we found our new best cafe in Palmerston North.
