“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

My husband and I visited this cafe for a coffee. Barrister was very friendly but dressed inappropriately. We ordered our coffee and sat down at rear of cafe near kitchen. Floor was stinking. Dust and pieces of food on floor and under tables. Pictures hanging out of their frame and god knows when it was dusted in there. Coffee came and teacup was dirty and stained. The entire cafe had a funny smell to it. We certainly won't be returning to that eatery again

“Good espresso stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Interesting name of the cafe made us stop and wonder....do they specialise in ginger goods? Had espresso which was good. They had a nice array of cabinet eats....scrummy slices in flavours not always seen. Nice modern decor. We'll stop here again next time in Warkworth.

“Great cakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great cakes - even gluten free options. Coffee and good as is the service. The place was clean when we visited.

“The Best Cafe in the Main Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We have been visitors to Ginger on and off for many years. The current owners have done a great job of presenting an enticing array of menu and display cabinet items and are reasonably priced.
The space is well utilised and includes limited outside seating, though being in the High Street, this does mean being next to the road.
If you are going to eat on the main street of Warkworth, Ginger is the place.

“A great spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Very handy spot in the middle of town. Does pretty good coffees, but the food is uninspiring - albeit pretty typical coffee house kind of food. Good for convenience, but wouldn't go out of my way for a visit!
