Amazing coffee!!!

Polite friendly service, yummy bacon buttie, and really, really good coffee! We went because of the on-line reviews which said it was the best coffee in Wanganui and we reckon they are right.

if you like strong coffee roast this is the place to go. Not everybody's cuppa. Very clean, friendly staff, great fresh food & service. Perhaps 2 brands of coffee could be offered?

This cafe will surprise you. I loved the garden at the back. Perfect for a sunny day. Coffee and cake and other items on the menu are affordable. I now know why it's a local favorite. Nice to have popped in here.
