“Good For Families or Groups”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I checked ahead and staff were very helpful in providing a menu option according to my dietary requirements - vegan and low fat. More than the expected group turned up but it was 'no problem' to staff. The meals took a while to come but were great.

“Good meal but.....”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The meals were excellent but the carpet adjacent our area was grubby with spilled food. I asked for it to be cleaned up and the lady did use a brush and shovel but on a grey carpet, everything showed. Apparently a couple of youngsters had been a bit rough with their food! Unsure whether I would go back.

“Good Breakfast Stop”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Better than a hotel breakfast:) Staff were helpful and coffee was good. Food was good - more information needed though on whether eggs/bacon freerange and/or organic.

“Best breakfast in town”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Definitely the best breakfast in town - don't miss the kumera hash cakes served with spinach, crispy bacon, egg, and hollandaise. Like eggs bene, but better! The only issue with this restaurant is that the wooden floors can make it quite loud and difficult to maintain conversation.

“Favourite spot for breakfast”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

I wasn't the only one waiting for it to open for breakfast on a recent weekday morning, and the others were locals which is an excellent sign. Very well located for anyone travelling on an early flight to PN and then going out to Massey. Lots of suits in the am because it's filling a need very well.
