Plenty choice for lunch prior to boarding an international flight. Quick service for meal, but slow for coffee.

Stopped in to grab some of the Famous custard squares, they have both vanilla and chocolate ones, 4.50 each. Grabbed a coffee while I was at it. Enjoyed the custard squares but the coffee (flat white) was too weak for me, it really needed an extra shot. Very friendly service.

The custard squares were very good , but the coffee was average , and the new staff didnt look happy and were not trained properly in the art of coffee making

We spent an enjoyable couple of hours here waiting for an international flight. Run by a couple of kiwis who have literally run away to the islands - a great story. Great big meals, good coffee, they did not mind us hanging around after reading our books. It was busy and had a good vibe. The service was not silver... More

Was starving hungry so called in for lunch. Not particularly busy but the service was really poor and not the usual smiles I have come to expect from places like this on the Island. Waited for ages and when service was not forthcoming I left.

We had lunch here a couple of days on our trip. The ika mata was delicious, and the staff were really friendly. I would recommend dropping in for some kai.

As the title says everything about this place and service was great. The kids enjoyed the outdoor playground even though they were too big for the swings, they still enjoyed themselves. Recommend a visit to this place.
