This cafe is at the northern end of the main street in Masterton. A very good selection of lunchtime food, efficient and friendly staff where you are able to chat with friends. Recommend trying this one.

Taste is at the far end of town away from the most of the shopping area and near the library. There are glass cabinets of food to serve yourself or order from the boards. I had a salmon quiche and hubby had a venison pie. We had coffee and tea. My quiche was made with lots of good salmon and... More

Caters for a wide range of tastes. Traditional NZ offerings as well as light meals. Good coffee, and good service.

This simple place beside the library is pleasant. On ANZAC day we needed lunch. My husband had a venison pie and I had a salmon quiche. I thought they were both reasonably priced. I did notice the full dressed chips or wedges were way over the top at $17. My quiche had lots of salmon and was served warm with... More

$17.50 for wedges is ridiculous. $7.50 for hot chips is pushing it. $5.50 is standard for a thickshake but that was not a thickshake, it was a milkshake with a bit of ice cream. There is a difference. The difference is thickshakes are thick. It was also too small in comparison with other thickshakes in Masterton eateries. The service was... More

This place has everything to do with taste I feel. Whenever I go there there is always the most exquisite tastes in the foods that I can order there and that the actual food I get there is unlike anywhere else! It has the most exquisite taste!

Best omelette and coffee breakfast we've had at a cafe. Lifted our grade from what we thought was going to be very average. Ladies, if you can't make people feel you're glad to see them at 10 am then stay in bed and employ someone who is! We almost walked out. But we're glad we didn't. This place deserves to... More

We had lunch here and were surprised at how lovely the food and coffees were as the cafe is a little old and rundown. We had a great coffee and wonderful milkshakes for the children and their scones were fresh and yummy. Service was with a smile..recommend.
