“Enjoyable but not worth the price.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011 via mobile

My wife, daughter and mother-in-law had lunch outside which was nice. We had two salads, which were good and a pannani. However, the chicken in the pannini and the calamari on the salad was sparse. The pannini arrived so much faster then the salads that it had been consumed before the salads had even arrived! The meal was not inexpensive and we were disappointed overall.

“The best people watching cafe in Napier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

- Cappadonna is a huge Napier hit with it's Parisian outdoor seating style it's a sweet perch for people watching.
- A 'lollyshop' like selection of cakes, sweets, salads and savouries. Presentation of staff and shop is well thought out.
- Fluffy Omelette for brunch was superbly done. Beef salad freshly created with tender beef and all the fresh trimmings you could ask for.

“Great food, lovely coffee, and what a place to people watch A+++”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

We stumbled into this place and the food was tasty and well prepared, priced fairly and sitting by the window allowed us to view the parade walking past. We had sandwiches, dessert, salad and coffee, it was one of the better meals we had all week. Recommended!

“Morning after breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Very popular cafe for a great breakfast after a big night at the Steely Dan concert - the second coffee was better than the first and their big breakfast hits the spot. Was also entertained by a pipe band that just happened by - great day.
