“My absolute favorite cafe in Napier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I have patroned Cappadonna many times over the years and it has always remained my most favorite cafe.

The food selection is extremely good, with great portion sizes and excellent quality. If I had enough room in my stomach I would have one of everything! Unfortunately I don't therefore whenever I'm in Napier I go to Cappadonna several times.

Service is always excellent. Wonderful value for money!

On sunny days go early to ensure you can get a seat outside as this cafe is busy from just before lunchtime, onwards.

“Heavenly Cakes and Slices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Wandered into Cappadonna for lunch and found heaven on earth. It has the largest collection of cakes and slices I've seen in a cafe...and the quality was as I said heavenly. I ordered a gourmet chicken sandwich and Baked New York Cheesecake and both did not dissapoint. I highly recommend those with sweet toothes to stop in and try a slice or two.

“Cafe”

Excellent coffee shop in the centre of Napier which also provided an amazing selection of sweet and savoury snacks. Extensive outdoor seating area. Once ordered at the counter, service was quick and efficient to the table.
