“Best coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

The barista is exceptional and the coffee fantastic. We read the reviews on trip advisor when planning our trip as great coffee is a key feature of our travels.. Sorry we are not staying longer in Napier .

“Food so good the plates were almost licked clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Brunch with hubby turned into a good surprise when we found Groove Kitchen. Coffee was excellent, food was amazing. He had the omelette and it was inhaled before my eyes. I was tempted by the daily special and wasn't disappointed. Good portion sizes, excellent produce and obviously made by a chef who cares about what leaves the kitchen. Great value. We even went back for more coffee on the way to the airport the following day. Next time we're in Napier we will be back.

“Yum brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Came in with three other friends and all of us had great brunch.

The eggs were cooked to perfection and the bacon crispy and left you wanting more.

The service was great too. Friendly and happy staff with lovely giggles coming from the kitchen.

“Great coffee and the Ginger Gems”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

Picked up the recommendation from Lonely Planet and it was worth the visit if only for the coffees,which were great, and the Ginger Gems their famous ginger cake. We went twice having had a take out Ginger Gem which were so fab we went back for more the next day. Didn't get the recipe, Grandma's original we were told, but it was good. There are other snacks and brunch items in a relaxed atmosphere with pleasant staff so worth passing a few other cafés to get to it

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

Friendly and helpful staff. Good selection of counter food; we opted for the separate brunch menu. Himself had the big breakfast, I chose the half portion salmon cakes. It was great to have the half portion options available on a number of menu items. The coffee was great; the meals a little longer arriving than expected however we had not indicated any urgency to the staff. Overall a pleasant experience.
