“Super Staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

I have been to the original restaurant in Taupo so I knew to expect the same franchise style food in Mount Maunganui, nothing was overly delicious but that's to be expected with a menu of those proportions and a high volume of customers (this was a bustling Saturday night). The staff on the other hand-were exceptional. I come from a long hospitality background so notice things that get overlooked by most. Even though the establishment is clearly understaffed at the moment your current staff are exceptional-courteous, thorough, enthusiastic and efficient. They should be commended-well done!

“Excellent Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

I ate the prawn and avo salad which was one of the best things I have eaten in a long time. My partner had the avo and bacon bagel which he said was tasty.
Also, I had the best mochachino I have ever had which is saying something.
Didn't help that the table over from us was three people fresh from climbing the Mount, they smelt awful.
Service was great but the next day when we came for breakfast they said the wait was 40 mins. Pretty hectic, but they said we could have coffee and wait which was nice.

“Nice Spot for lunch”

We had a lovely lunch here a good priced lunch menu, I had the pie of the day and the pastry melted in your mouth. Their hot chocolate is a must but do ask for it extra hot as it was luke warm
