A brunch catch up with an old friend. She recommended it as a decent place and it was. There were lots of people and on a Sunday morning you know it will be busy so it's not fair to comment just on slow service. This can happen everywhere. The key thing is the food, when it came, was great and... More

OUr first difficulty was explaining our coffee order to the waiter who could barely understand our Kiwi English. He was pleasant, trying hard, but it was very difficult. It was clear he did not understand our requests. He did not seek help. Next came the order for food. I asked for French Toast and asked that the bananna be fresh... More

Food quality and service were excellent. Meal portions are small and therefore a bit pricey. Good location with a good selection of food on the menu

We've met up with friends quite a few times here. It's always great food and a good location. The owner is very friendly and obliging. We love the place and it's our first choice in Devonport.

Manuka has always had great food however the service lacked a little, we had to wave over someone multiple times before a server noticed us to order! Creme brulee is amazing!

Too bad about the service. The setting is nice as you can sit out on the sidewalk. Great people watching spot. Food was good. I had the shrimp and my wife had a burger. Service throughout was spotty at best. The issue came when we were ready to pay the bill. We asked our waitress for the bill and she... More
