A very friendly refreshingly excellent cafe. Both of our meals were excellent and generous. The side salad was beautifully fresh and imaginative, and both the frittata and the fritter were excellent. Clean toilets, pleasant surroundings, choice of indoor, pavement or quiet courtyard seating. Would thoroughly recommend.

So darn good I didn't notice it was vegetarian! Mushrooms were great. Only downer was the iced coffee...a blender job, not what i expected from such a great cafe, but the real coffees are excellent.

Food was good and is for gluten free and vegetarian diets but the place needs a tidy up. Obviously popular as it was very busy on Saturday for morning tea and opened quite early for breakfast on Sunday.

After a long drive, this great little cafe proved an excellent choice to rest and revive. Great coffee , a delicious range of cakes and goodies including gluten free options, and a very friendly staff. A chat with the chef was an additional bonus.

Friendly prompt service greeted me early on a Saturday morning. I ordered eggs on 5 grain toast with two sides - fried potatoes and mushrooms, and a flat white. My coffee was fantastic - any Auckland cafe would be envious. The food was served promptly and I enjoyed the meal. Keep up the good work.
