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.

My partner and I had a brunch at Barista on Saturday. We were quickly attended to and took a seat in the window. The wait staff were on the ball and hot drinks arrived in moments.

This is now my favourite Palmerston North café. We had a group of 8 for lunch, and everyone loved their food. I had salmon, which was served with an interesting but incredibly pleasant combination of flavours (grapefruit and avocado). The coffee was good too (important for a Wellingtonian!).

I think is the most popular Cafe in PN and I guess why. Small menu but all high quality. A little bit crowded on weekend.
