LOVE LOVE LOVE Chantel's! The cabinet options are fantastic but you've got to order their Bircher Muesli, it's incredible! I make sure this is my first stop whenever I'm in Hawkes Bay. The Organic Shop attached is fantastic too.

I really like this cafe but I must say the service can range from really friendly to a bit miserable - depending on who is working. Food is consistent really healthy and you feel healthy will every bite. shakshuka, banana gf muffin, buddha bowl, pancakes I have tired a fair bit with no complaints!

Looking for coffee and cake we'd left one cafe because they had so little choice of gluten free (chocolate brownie again!) We walked into the Kitchen and found at least 4 choices plus salads. I had the gluten free pizza and the chocolate and beetroot cheese cake. Delicious. The service is a little slow but worth it for the food... More

I've belonged to food coops for years so when we stumbled on this healthy store, we felt right at home. We shared a large salad (with three choices) and a Swiss chard quinche. Delicious!!! Thank you!

I want to know the secret to this cafe's food - it's healthy and completely delicious, so much better than the unhealthy versions, I wish this cafe was where I lived but I will be visiting every time i'm back in the Hawkes Bay, and will be taking food for the road as well! Fabulous fabulous!
