“Could do a lot better!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Could do a lot better! Very inexperienced waitress. Apologized for all her faults. But that does not make the experience any better. Food very average. Moroccan lamb shanks. Where was the moroccan? Overcooked steaks. Very disappointed.

“Good coffee friendly service”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

This cafe is handy to broadway with plenty of parking, the staff are friendly and helpful and provide quick service. The cafe is sited on King Street and is a short walk through the alley way to broadway.

“Pleasantly Suprised”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Arriving in Feilding on a cold & wet afternoon we did not have high expectations of what we would find for lunch - but were pleasantly surprised by Sage Cafe. There was a warm welcome by the sole wait person/counter staff - she immediately offered us a children's menu, which had a slightly better range than just nuggets & chips (though they were there too). I noted that when another family came in after us she was equally attentive to their children's needs.
I admit to being on the fussy side when it comes to my coffee but again was pleasantly surprised with a decent coffee. The kiwiana burger my husband ordered was impressive in appearance & very generous in serving size. He found the homemade patties to be very tasty & the only drawback was the use of a processed cheese slice -which was such a shame on a burger with clearly homemade patties and relish.
I will certainly be recommending this cafe to others traveling in this area, especially to those with children.

“Could do better.”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Sadly, rather average all told considering its visual attraction.
The morrocan prawn & scallop salad was generous in proportion but rather lacked anything vaguely morrocan in flavour.
The long black was a tad weak and bland and the other half says the same of the moccha.
Won't be back I think.
