Prices are now higher than Wellington and Auckland - $23 for a full cooked breakfast with no coffee.
My companion and I were visiting and decided to stop for breakfast. Order to service took some 45 minutes and the place was barely 30% full so the kitchen was not rushed. As so often in NZ the place appeared to be entirely staffed by children with no evidence of a more mature manager in charge.
I like the Village Cafe but I think it needs to regain the spark it once had.
