Have always gone here when we visit Havelock North. Great variety of food, friendly service and my favourite is the apple strudel and their ginger crunch is so yummy!!!! Also have seating outside to enjoy the lovely warm sun and fresh air.

We swung by here in the morning before leaving Havelock North, and I'm so glad we did. It was the best ginger slice of our trip. The bakery offerings were lovely (and huge). My son had the cream donut and cinnamon roll and there were no complaints...just sticky smiles.

Thought the pies not as good as a year ago. Mine lacked meat with too much gravey. Others in our group had a good pie. Excellent coffee very busy but nice outdoor seating.

We found Havelock on an overcast day in spring. All the streets were blocked with a local carnival. Lots of music and activity that was fun for children and adults. We had lunch at the bakery. The cases were filled with both sweet and savory. I had a fantastic brioche. I wish we had spent longer with so many sweet... More

We stopped in for a morning top up. My partner grabbed a chicken pie and I had a nenish tart. Both were exceptional delicious! Just like a bakery from the old days :)
