“A great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

With such a huge amount of places to choose from, what stood out for us was their use of organic produce. We weren't disappointed when the food came for our 2 boys, the portions were just right ( although please consider 2 pieces of toast/bagel when serving 2 eggs!)
Lovely coffee and excellent choice of drinks. We were so impressed, we went back the following day. Only sorry that they aren't open for dinner service yet!!!!
Staff very polite and helpful.

“Fast, friendly food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Stopped in here for breakfast on a recommendation. We have fussy children and they accommodated all their requirements , no cream, fruit instead of yoghurt really well with no need to explain twice. Food was served very quickly.
One minor complaint. The tables inside the cafe are very wobbly which I find quite irritating.

“Probably worse cafe meal I have ever had - oh dear”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

My fault probably for picking this dish because I don't like sauce. It was smothered in so much that I couldnt tell the different vegetables. I think there was pumpkin, potatoes and onion, but I could be wrong because the sauce discoloured everything and wet everything. I had picked grilled chicken and vegetables. The staff were nice.

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Climbed the Mount late morning, descended around lunch time, walked around the beachfront looking for a place to rest. Tried Slowfish, and lunch was good - had the kumara pie and mushroom in cream. I had a pleasant experience, but the lady at the counter wasn't so pleasant with another group of diners at the next table.
