“Always tranquil and quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We love the Yellow House Wanganui. It's always tranquil and quiet - out of the city, with lots of parking. Good food and coffee under fire engine red umbrellas, and the confident little sparrows that spring across the table and enjoy your left-overs. Kids thought this was most entertaining.!!

“Regular stopover for lunch/coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Great place to stop for lunch en route to somewhere. There's plenty of parking and you can avoid the city centre. Food is usually good especially daily specials and they cater for vegetarians. As well as coffee you can get a glass of beer/wine. Outdoor tables under umbrellas or verandah, away from any busy roads. And they take credit cards. Don't always believe the nit-pickers!

“Convenient cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Good parking and easy to get to. Lovely sunny spots to sit and sip coffee on cool days.
Friendly service. Mixed type of foods available. Good thing about Yellow Cafe is you dont have to shout to hear one another.

“Very comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We have had several lunches ( sometimes late in the afternoon) at the Yellow House Cafe, we have also had two friday evening dinners and partcipated in a private function at the Yellow House. On all occasions we have found the service and meals to be of a very high standard and have not hesitate to recommend this Cafe to all our friends.
