Don't let the word cafe fool you. The food at this place is amazing!! Good atmosphere and a nice outdoor area as well. Good, friendly service and nothing is too much trouble. Dinner prices are on the higher side 28-35nzd per main but well worth it. I had Crispy pork belly with black pudding and seared scallops. It comes with... More

Always a good stop for breakfast, if its fine outside tables, otherwise inside. There is a good variety of options for food and the coffee is Peoples Republic. Clean toilets and parking out the front.

cafe Medici is very popular with the locals for good reason. It has a buzz and a very welcoming feel with really good service despite a busy day on Toast weekend. Good range of meals and licensed also.

Medici has been a good solid choice for a long time. The service is friendly, prices good, food competent at worst but always with enough touches of flair (the fires are always top-notch, for example) to keep you coming back. The wine list is small but well-chosen, with a good mix of value picks and few interesting (usually local) drops... More

This wasn't our first choice but we couldn't get a table where we originally wanted to go and it turns out that this was no hardship at all. We received very friendly and attentive service and had an altogether very enjoyable dinner. It's worth a visit.

Chose Medici at random as somewhere that we could grab a quick lunch. The menu was quite limited but I could from what was coming out of the kitchen that the quality was high. We had two lattes and shared a club sandwich which came with fries and a salad. It was delicious and more than enough for two.
