“Worth trying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

The food well displayed in the cabinet, fresh and beautifully put on the plate.Plenty of outside seating this cafe has it own herb garden which they pick from.they now have a experience coffee / barmaid with a license my granddaughter she has just joined the staff a few weeks ago.We found it hard to find as we live in Whakatane and didn't know the town.I agree they were slow,there were 4 staff on should've been a bit faster BUT WORTH THE WAIT

I really enjoy stopping into visit this eating place. They always have a great range of food to suit all palates and age groups. I also enjoy their coffees, hot and cold. Good parking. Close location to shopping centre and supermarket. Lovely atmosphere

“Slow but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Great counter selection, good coffee, good menu (a little pricey), slow delivery.
Have been to this cafe many times and it remains my pick Cambridge cafes. I'd give it 5 stars if my coffee would turn up in a reasonable time. They don't have a dedicated barrister so front of house make coffee while serving and tending the counter. Most of the time I order a coffee the tables seated after me get their fare first. Random. Otherwise an excellent place.

“Great little cafe..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Always good food and good coffee every time we go, keep it up.
Food always looks and tastes freshly made and has the homemade feel.

On the pluses outside of the food, great parking being off the New World car park, dog friendly with both a grassed area and outside patio and they make your dog feel at home with water.

Service at times can be a little sporadic but all in all friendly, Absolute for me is definately a Cafe and not a "Restaurant" so great for coffee & cake plus Lunch.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

A hidden treasure where you would not expect to find a coffee house, but a delight when you step inside - good menu, good environment, good service with a smile. Food is different and very tasty.
