Had lovely poached eggs and smoked salmon as a late brunch breakfast. Faultless. The baked goods at the counter looked delicious too

Was last here three years ago, so we stopped for a coffee, which I have to say was lovely. They have tidied the place up a bit and the toilets are far more accommodating than before ... lets just park that there. However the choice...More

We are regulars here because the coffee is soooo good. The service is always friendly and the food is excellent. It’s a great location that reminds me of the UK and a little bit bohemian being in Titirangi. Highly recommended.

Visited here with my friends on a sunny day, sitting outside in the sun, sipping some delicious coffee and a platter of absolutely delightful Kumara chips. Loved it. Quite popular and crowded therefore but the food is really nice.
