The food was good but the staffs were unfriendly. I ordered one Mocha and one cheese cake BUT they made me wait for 20 minutes.

This cafe in Napier was very welcoming and friendly. Their food, their muffins, their coffee was absolutely beautiful. Their muffins were so lovely we went back again before we left to drive home and bought some more to have with our tea.
