We enjoyed breakfast here Thursday and popped back Friday as well. Sampled the homemade museli, with fruit, yogurt and a very large omelette with salmon. Very nice place, huge counter food selection and a good coffee. Maybe give the toilets a revamp? Will be back on our next visit.

Visited here sporadically over the years. Today for take away lunch. Lots on offer. Some lovely looking dishes. I chose the sweet chili chicken salad. I wasn’t sold on it but was told it was one of their best sellers. Looked nice so I gave it a go. Service was ok. The options for takeaway are $9.00 and $13.00. They... More

A large selection of food to choose from so it takes awhile to pick what you want. Yummy and worth the dollars. Coffee lovers will like as very strong.

Found this long established family business on a two Wellington stop. Had lunch here on day one and came back on day two for breakfast. Coffee was good, ambiance and food too. Would come again.

We stopped in here last Sunday morning while waiting for friends. We only ordered a cup of tea and a coffee as we were heading off. So wish we had ordered some of the beautiful food. Cup of tea was fantastic as was the coffee. Nice friendly staff and the place was super clean. Will come back here again -... More

Stopped in for late lunch, food was ok, but as it was later in afternoon, seemed a little dry. No complaints otherwise, for a nice deli cafe.

We went for brunch today and the service was awful. The people behind the counter were very rude. I ordered an omelette and the blackboard said to ask staff for options. When I asked the waitress for options she said "well what do you want". If I had known the choices perhaps I wouldn't have to ask. When she also... More

We opted for omelettes and we're delighted with what was produced which goes to show that conceivably the last time I visited the chef was having a bad hair day or something similar!
