“Not once but twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We had breakfast at Moxies two mornings in a row. The first morning we both had the big breakfast and boy was it big. So big in fact that we didn't eat again that day or night! For drinks we both ordered English Breakfast Tea and received a pot each. The little teapots weren't so little as we managed to get three cups of tea each.

The service was friendly and the staff have a sense of humour. It's really good to find somewhere that hasn't forgotten what top notch customer service is all about. There was a constant stream of people coming and going and I can see why - they have an excellent menu of breakfast and lunch offerings.

The next day we returned. My partner had the porridge and I had the pancakes. It was tempting to have the big breakfast again but we were going to a friends place for lunch so needed to make sure there was room for that.

Next time we come to Palmerston North we will be coming back to Moxies Café that's for sure.

“Average cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Generous serving sizes although nothing stood out. French toast was nearly all bread and little bannana.

“mmm... brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

busy doesn't always mean good - but Moxies is an exception to that.
Sunday brunch is a bit of an institution there, and especially on an All Blacks international weekend tres busy.
Good food, well priced with friendly staff - recommended!!

“Really good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Very well priced for the quality of food, and healthy portions also. The coffee is what made the café standout, it was really good, too many cafes serve up weak and uninspiring coffee. The coffee at Moxies was hot and strong.

My wife ordered bagel with cream cheese and I had poached eggs, both were very good.

If you are in the area, worth a visit.
