Went to Dixie's for the 3rd time, this time to try breakfast. We chose one of the $9.90 specials (eggs, toast, sausages and hash brown) and it was substantial and delicious. Superb value and the restaurant and service is fantastic. We plan to re-visit to try some if Dixie's gorgeous deserts.

Hello

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to Dixie Browns for breakfast. Our new breakfast menu is proving very popular with an option for everyone, from the egg white omelette for the healt conscious to my new favourite the corncake stack!

Did you know that everyone of our delicious deserts, muffins and slices are made right here on the premises? The hardest thing is choosing which one.

We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

Kind Regards

Hello

Tahnk you for taking the time to review your recent visit to Dixie Browns.

It is very dissapointing to read you did not enjoy your experience. Training staff is always a fine balance between taking care of our valued customers and letting our new team member learn the ropes. On this occasion, I am sorry to say, we did not get that balance correct and for that we do apologise.

As I am sure you will see from our previous reviews this is certainly not the norm. We do place a very high emphasis on customer service and we take it very seriously if we do not hit the mark. In response to your review, I am pleased to say, we have implemented some changes to our staff training process.

We do appreciate your feedback as it gives us the opportunity to recitfy any potential issues and to maintain and deliver the high standard of service on which we pride ourselves.

If you do get the chance to visit Taupo again we would welcome the opportunity to show you just how great a dining experience at Dixie Browns can be.

Kind Regards
Martina Stephen
