Had breakfast with hubby. The place has character. Menu was good. Friendly accommodating staff. We had big breakfast and ordered extra Hollandaise sauce which was divine. The sausages were really tasty compared to other we have had before ( and we have had a lot!). Mushroom also was very tasty. Had Chai Latte! Very nice! =) Price is not bad,... More

Tried this café for a change, Not an overly big Café, but found a table out front between the building and the footpath. Nice to sit and watch the world going by. Helpful friendly staff too. Just popped in for a coffee and cake, mid Sunday afternoon, so cake cabinet a little empty, still, the main menu looks interesting. Will... More

An excellent cafe opposite the theatre on Tennyson Street. The coffee — excellent 'mouthfeel' with creamy well textured milk. The chocolate and berry brownie (which was also gluten free) well balanced and gooey melt in your mouth! Pleasant and positive staff experience Thank you

Groove Kitchen is one of the 2 best places in Napier to get consistently good coffee. Has a good selection of meals as well. The service is very good.

We really enjoy our time at Groove. At least once a week we visit for coffee and a tasty treat - be it an eggs bene or ginger gem. I won't go anywhere else for coffee - Ben makes THE best

Third group breakfast for 15 there this year and still the very high standards that Ben and his team are known for. Great coffee, ecxellent food and catered for the vegan, vegetarian and gluten free members.

Wonderful hospitality, very pleasant ambiance and very good food -worth the wander up the street right across from the theatre.

We had salmon on potato cake (so glad it wasn't fried), full size, and 3 hot flaps pancakes. Both were delicious! Coffee was great. Service was lovely, both barista/manager and young girls serving us. Very pleased with our breakfast!

Coffee was good, I like the fact that they ask if you would like your coffee extra hot. Which I do. Groove's take on eggs benedict is an interesting one using hash cake (store made) instead of breads. My wife judges most cafes on this as it is her personal favourite. Food was tasty eggs were only slightly overdone for... More
