“Fantastic ”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

We went to this cafe twice last weekend for breakfast. It was fantastic. We all loved it. Very different options in the menu, not things you can find in a normal cafe. Awesome service too :)

“Loving the new Cafe”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Really loving this new Cafe! Really nice food, many gluten free options, decor is wonderful, variety of food choices is really well done. I started visiting this cafe regularly from word of mouth, they are really getting a awesome name for themselves. HOWEVER, there are a few things I have noticed while there that could use some work. I took my mum there for a birthday lunch date, she is a health professional, and really could not bring herself to order anything from the counter as none of it is covered, there were quite a few flies buzzing around and the food was being breathed on by a full line of customers, and brushed by hands arms and wallets when customers were paying for their meals. Maybe they might what to have a look at ways to cover the food with clear plastic or glass covers. Also the waiting staff are not very quick at clearing tables, last time I was there 40% of the tables were unusable as they has other people dishes on them, also with customers tips sitting there on the plates (so those people must have loved the service, awesome stuff) table cleanliness, and covering the food would make this cafe definitely on of the best in Rotorua if not the best! Keep doing your thing guys, and I hope you consider my criticisms as advise not an attack. Oh AND just personally, I'd love to see more gluten free, sugar free options.

Thank you for your feedback! We really do appreciate it. We took on board your comments and are pleased to advice you that we now have a glass top cover on our counter! It was something we were really wanting to do from the start but didn't quite get around to it! We welcome you and your mother back for coffee and a treat ON US!

“A must do.”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

All the food in the cabinet and front of house looked delicious. Sadly the breakfast I ordered from (smashed avo with eggs etc) wasnt that nice. And both mine and my partners breakfasts were just luke warm. Nice staff though and yummy range of food.

“Excellent Cafe!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Brought my family here. We had chicken schnittys and an open face mushroom sandwich. Both slam dunks. Coffee is perfect as well. Menu is unique and makes it extremely hard to choose. We will be back for sure. Breakfast and lunch menus look amazing.
