The Apothecary has been tastefully furnished. It has wholesome food and salads and other snacks are available. The service is a bit slow because there often seems to be only one person taking the order and the money so try and go when they are not too busy.

This has become a favourite morning or afternoon coffee place for me and my friends and I am sure will continue to be so. We haven't tried the new wine bar next door yet but that will be our next stop.

Motorcycle ride led me to eastern beaches. This cafe on Main Street Howick presented as popular, full of antiques (it is owned by the dealer next door) and the order of savoury mince, poached egg on rye toast was well made. Good local offering.

We've been impressed by this excellent cafe on the two occasions we've visited. The coffee is excellent, well made, and arrives promptly even when they are busy. The staff are friendly and efficient. We were well pleased with our generous brunch plates of eggs benedict. There are tables street-side which are pleasant on a sunny day. There's a good choice of seating inside including couches and bar stools and it's very attractively decorated in keeping with its name. We haven't been here for an evening meal but if we were in Howick at dinnertime this would be our first choice.

My in-laws loved this place just sit with coffee and watch the world of Howick go past. Now it has a little eatery at the side which is very small and cosy.
