I frequent this cafe in a regular basis and have done so since opening which must be 8 years. Without a doubt Lisa & her team deliver time and time again. Great food, great coffee, great service. Truly, you won't find a better cafe in Whangarei.

The salads, pies and French pastries were all delicious. However, they were all quite expensive for their small size. The counter food all looked very inviting.

Great food, good prompt service and fab coffee! I've been here a few times for lunch. I'd definitely go again. I like the salad selection ( I take photos of their cabinet to attempt making them at home) and the coffee good!!! I love coffee!!!

Popped in for a quick morning tea coffee break. Awesome Space, great design. Was given table water in awesome wee milk bottles. Ordered coffee and it was delicious! Thank goodness for amazing coffee! Anyway, didn't have time to eat but cabinet food looked amazing! Cannot wait to go back. Service good too :)

Smooth coffee that's the perfect temperature (because I don't like to wait or scald my tongue!) They do caramelized leek omelets very well. Often caramelized dishes are too sweet, but this was a nicely balanced savory brunch dish. Plating is more functional than pretty, so don't judge by the appearance of your dish. The staff, however, more than make up... More

Really cool place. Even the table water was yummy because it was served in little milk bottles with straws. The coffee is top class, offering tulip cup size and larger options. Food was fantastic in taste and variety. Staff were friendly No faults - well maybe just that it was hard to find a table.

This has to be the best in town. Great coffee and wonderful porridge. I know it looks very Aucklandish but they need to drop the plastic straw with the water

Ok food. Counter food and baking looked way better then my dish. Nice presentation. Good coffee. Menu very small and nothing very interesting about it tbh, just the basics... I guess I had high expectations based on other reviews from this page, so was a bit disappointed. Not many Gluten free options either - I didn't see any. Good service.

Thank Aline P
