We visited Lush last time we were in New Plymouth and liked it so called in for morning tea on a recent visit. There was a lot of nice looking food in the cabinet so it was hard to choose, nearly bought something for lunch to take with us. Coffee was good too.

The staff forgot our order of two gelatos. After waiting for half an hour in the empty cafe we enquired where our order was - two staff members looked for it, said it was lost and rudely asked "what did you want?". When we finally got our order there was no apology or acknowledgement. We should have expected that - the staff are NEVER friendly.

Berry hot cakes were delicious. The mushroom stack had quite a few onions in it but it was still pretty good. Coffee was nice but the ozone blend is probably a bit dark and bitter for my taste

My wife and I re-visited Lush again after a less than memorable visit earlier in the year. Another chance for an improvement in food, service and coffee.
Their coffee is good, well roasted and prepared, but inconsistent in its taste and presentation. There is definitely something missing here. There were no date scones and the savoury offering was doughy and bland. We hade the soup of the day, bacon and kumera, which was pleasantly typical cafe fare without any special effort in its presentation of quality. I do commend Lush, however, for their attempts to have a varying 'special of the day' and their ice creams are really very nice. Service was OK and tablets were cleared quickly and without fuss. Maybe we'll give them another chance later in the year.
