Lunch on a sunny Saturday

I love this little cafe and it has the best coffee in Palmerston North which is consistently good. We had a relaxing lunch with a friend, enjoying the sun outside.

Café Cuba has been a favourite for many years but I have recently returned to NZ and under new management this Café is thriving. The Thai Beef Salad is amazing! Staff are friendly and accommodating and the cake cabinet will catch your eye as soon as you step in the door!

Stopped in on our way to Napier and had a delicious lunch. My husband had the pasta, I had the hash stack and our daughter had the kids meal.

Good time. The food was good and the price was reasonable. I will go back again but I think the cafe jackos around the corner is very good as well for the odd time this place is full.
