Previously my favourite cafe with an excellent vibe, everything has changed including the little touches. Hmmm... No music, 5 people at 10.45 am wow, it used to be packed at that time on a Sunday, where are they all?

Service was rude! It's hospitality not a reflection of how much you hate your life. It felt like i was a problem not a customer! I will never go there again and will do everything in my power to never let another person have to endure this kind of experience!

Caffeine is always enjoyable. The coffee and food are great and the service is always friendly. The place is always busy, which is a good sign, but you never wait for very long. I go there at least once a week and plan a lot of meetings there.

Love the breakfast menu, this place is always packed even on a Sunday. Right in the heart of town the coffee and service impress. Friendly staff - this place does Whangas proud.
