A regular visit for me. Always popular on a sunny day with the outdoor seating. Menu is varied and often when there is nothing that i see that i would like i just ask and often they will just make it. It is one of the few places that open for the early risers especially on a sunday. Coffee is good.

Love their fig & date slice, yum! They are always really friendly & quick to make the coffee. Lovely outdoor seats are available if the weathers nice which overlooks the Watt fountain & Vic Ave traffic. I've not had a bad coffee from there once.

In my opinion this would be the best place for coffee in Wanganui. They have several Baristas and they are all good which is a bonus because it does not matter which day you go. The staff are excellent and always have time for a quick chat. The food is good and the seating areas inside are good. You can also sit outside on the pavement area which is very nice especially on a sunny day.

The Big Orange is always on our 'to do' list for a snack when traveling to or through Wanganui. The selection of cakes & muffins is great and so is the coffee. The staff are always friendly when we visit and there is great magazines and free daily papers to read while you eat/drink. Nice!
