“Great Gluten Free & Vegetarian choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

This review probably means nothing to you unless you have dietary requirements like my travelling buddy and I.

This cafe was a diamond in the rough. We trekked up and down the streets of Wanganui to find somewhere that was a) open, b) gluten free friendly, and c) vegetarian friendly. And this literally was the only place we could find. And boy, what a find. It has more gf options than the entire city that I'm originally from has.
Although it was at an awkward time for lunch (3 or 4pm) the lady behind the counter was very friendly and helpful.
The food was tasty and healthy, so if that is what you're into - go here.

“Okay food, okay service, coffe not the best.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Just what you would expect from a smal lcafe in a small town. Service was okay, coffee was not that hot when it arrived and tasted a bit sour, wonder if the millk was off. Food is standard cafe fare, nothing exceptional but you get what you pay for. Fine for a quick bite but would not say it would be my favourite. Have had better here before, maybe it was just a bad day.

“Great coffee but bland food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Have had two meals here recently. Service is excellent. Cafe is bright, clean and airy. However ,the past two times we have visited the food has been disappointing. Ordered toasted sandwiches which looked as though they had been slapped together and toasted without any butter on the outside of the bread, resulting in a very dry texture.

Patrick G, Owner at Delicious Cafe & Wine Bar, responded to this review, April 2, 2013
We are sorry that your toasted sandwiches were bland. We have many spicy items on our menu and toasted sandwiches were one of the items we included to offer a less spicy option. As we do not know the ingredients you chose, we can't comment any further on the blandness factor. We have taken on board your comment about buttering or not buttering the outside. We now ask everyone which they would prefer. One of our goals is to provide the healthiest food available, therefore we reduce the consumption of butter and oil by default. Our regular customers want to feel like there are no unexpected extras.
You commented that the service was good. Having said that, we would have liked to have the option to rectify the problem at the time.
