It might be that I was expecting too much, I planned my whole coromandal trip around coming to SOla. I've been a vegetarian for over 40 years but this place didn't really float my boat. Firstly I found the lack of paper menu difficlut with all the items scrawled randomly over a wall, I am short sighted so had to... More

Sola serves good coffee and a big range of vegetarian food. Had some very yummy meals here and would recommend. I'm not veggie but you would hardly even notice, the food is that tasty.

Can't think of much to write about Sola Cafe which in my mind is not a good or bad sign. It was just average. OK coffee, OK service, OK atmosphere, OK food. No complaints but nothing special either.

What a change to walk into a cafe that actually has homemade, healthy and organic/vegetarian food that you actually want to eat.The salad combinations are what I enjoyed the most (especially the beetroot), usually three different types each day, perfect with a dollop of kumara humus on top, eat there or takeaway. The coffee is good too. Many healthy options... More

The chocolate cake was outstanding and you just wanted more. The focus is organic vegetarian and the array of food is mouth-watering. Fast efficient service!

This Cafe was bustling when we visited, but the service was fast and friendly and the food looked really delicious. I enjoyed a slice of Orange & Almond cake with cream on the side- YUM!!!!!!! They have their own filtered water available to cafe guests, which was great after a morning wandering around Thames looking at the shops on a... More

We were in Thames for the weekly Market on Pollen Street and had a pleasant lunch at Sola Cafe. The cafe is obviously very popular with the Thames locals and tourists alike as the tables were busy the whole time we were there. The food was well prepared and presented by helpful wait staff. Recommended eatery when in Thames.

Found this great morning tea at the 7206 Pollen street street.which is the main road in the retail shops and cafe precinct.. It's about a 45 minute drive on a windy road from Pauanui, where we were staying. They have yummy home made cakes and light meals, sandwiches etc. The coffee was just right too! A clean bright cafe, with... More
