“Pulled pork and delicious fill-your-own donuts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Popped in for lunch today. Very warm welcome from happy enthusiastic staff. Husband had the best pulled pork which was so tender but with a crisp outside. Yum!!! And finished off with great coffee and unique "fill your own" donuts. We spent all the meal watching the kitchen make tray after tray of donuts. With a syringe of custard on the side, I shared my donut and we all loved it.
Fun and fantastic. Great for lunch but only open Thursday, Fri and Sat for dinner

“great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I've been here for lunch a few times both for business meetings/networking & personal (catching up with friends etc). I've always been pleased with the menu choices & the friendly service. There's usually something a little "out of the ordinary" on the menu which is great. Apparently the doughnuts are "to die for" but I haven't tried them myself. Enjoy:)

“Happy Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Spending one rainy night in Napier we were delighted to have this recommended to us. The Kingfish salad/appetizer was out of this world. Love to be able to go back.

“Inject your own Donuts here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

This was a great choice for a nice lunch out on our first day in Napier, for a girls weekend away. The food was freshly made to order off the dine-in menu and the dessert was really cool, especially as I opted for the donut with inject your own jam! And it was definitely as yummy as it sounds. The waiter was very enthusiastic which you get used to by the end of your dining experience. Hope to visit again in the future to try the dinner menu.
Thank you for a great meal.

“Big city service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Good place this. Good menu but I hear it doesn't change much. We had a very good wine waiter, Matt, who was very knowledgeable. A good urban buzz with big city standards.
