If you like doughnuts then you will live mister D's! Made to order they have a slight crouch but melt in your mouth dough served fresh out of the fryer with a side syringe if your choice if filling!

Perfect special date place. Came here a couple of months ago and service was a little average. This time it was amazing! The guy we had was really cool and was knowledgeable. The doughnuts were out of this world and if you're going to get anything - get the doughnut!

We enjoyed our lunch with glass of rosé, tapas plate inspired by Spanish Cousine, both were great, but the best part was coffee with doughnuts!!! OMG, I wish we could come back to enjoy it once again... ;) staff was friendly and quick, ease and nice atmosphere as well. We recommend this place!

Came for breakfast and coffee. Nice choice of inside or semi-out, with good easygoing music. Had poached eggs, tomato mushroom with white coffee all great taste and service was prompt. Didn't have wifi and it wasn't cheap -$21 so that's why not 5 star.

We stopped in here with friends who live in Napier as they said the place is famous for its donuts. Oh my they are amazing, hot sugar and cinnamon covered with an optional filling served in a syringe of chocolate, jam or custard. I have a sweet tooth and I preferred them just as they came without the sauce.

To be honest I'm not a real sweets person, have enjoyed breakfast here though with friends and they loved the Donuts and the sweet options and the service was excellent.

We had breakfast here twice, because it was just so good. Beautiful preserves, the ricotta cake was delicious and all produce and baking was very fresh. We also had dinner, which was excellent. The staff made the breakfast and meals we had there an absolute treat. Highly recommend.

We had breakfast here and the kids loved the donuts. They get to inject chocolate or custard into the donut. Our breakfasts were very tasty and the coffee was excellent

It's my first visit to Mr D. I liked its decor and interesting menu. Service was excellent. I ordered duck risotto. The duck was perfectly cooked with crispy skin and tender meat. I didn't quite like the lemon juice and current in the risotto and so they made me a new one without them, but with perfectly cooked duck again!... More
