A venue that is trying to something a little different than the usual fare and on the whole is not doing too bad a job. There is a good buzz on the live music nights and the place can get crowded, the interior could do with an ambience make over to add to a little more cosiness for the evening... More

Not one, but two nasty reviews from the same person – lucky us. The first review, which should have been entitled “let me be condescending about small towns”, claimed his coffee was “sour”. No other comments from our regulars who also drank milk from that bottle of Anchor (NZs freshest milk), and have the courage to approach us. So this... More

Sorry our soup didn't meet your expectation. We are always happy to refund on the spot. It's a pity that this couldn't be a constructive criticism to us personally rather a negative review on the internet. More

My wife and I dined tonight. The entree platter of breads, dips, etc was very good. Mostly made there it was the best I've had for a while. My main was great also. The best thing is that the meal is unlike the typical pub meal you get everywhere in Wanganui. We will definately be back.

Went there on Thursday night for a meal out with a friend of mine. Turned out to be live music night which was a real treat. The atmosphere was lively without being too loud and the food was very nice too. A little bit on the expensive side compared to what I am used to paying ($27 for the fajitas),... More

Great Local Restaurant - Lovely Food. Went with my partner's son and girlfriend who are doctors at the local hospital. This is one of their locals and I can see why! It was nice and relaxed with good food and some live music. It would have been nice to go back for another meal but unfortunately we were on our... More

Thank you for a lovely romantic dining opportunity. My partner and I were having a weekend away from the kids heading to new Plymouth when we decided to stop in at Whanganui. We liked the look of delicious café and thought we would pop in for a quick coffee and bite. We were greeted by two guys playing guitar and... More

This review probably means nothing to you unless you have dietary requirements like my travelling buddy and I. This cafe was a diamond in the rough. We trekked up and down the streets of Wanganui to find somewhere that was a) open, b) gluten free friendly, and c) vegetarian friendly. And this literally was the only place we could find.... More

Just what you would expect from a smal lcafe in a small town. Service was okay, coffee was not that hot when it arrived and tasted a bit sour, wonder if the millk was off. Food is standard cafe fare, nothing exceptional but you get what you pay for. Fine for a quick bite but would not say it would... More
