Was here for a business dinner and found the atmosphere is relaxed and staff welcoming. The food is beautifully presented, fresh and tasted delicious. Plenty of good NZ wines to choose from and service was excellent with attentive staff.

We stopped here to rest our weary feet after a lot of sightseeing. Coffee was good. Lots of outdoor seating to enjoy the passing trade.

Visited this place a couple of times. Great ice cream. Good, friendly service (a little slow but not too bad). Didn't care for their sandwiches but went back multiple times for their deserts.

Capuchino served with love and French croissants are my favourite at this Cafe. Free wifi makes this place a great breakfast venue.
