We stopped here for lunch. The cafe is nicely decorated and a great location, however the wait for the food was really long and when it came out the food wasn't that great.

This cafe has a great selection of tables outside, where you can enjoy your drink while overlooking the flower gardens, while being visited by ducks (though you're not supposed to feed them within cafe grounds). We tried the chocolate Lamington, a clown face cookie, and a chocolate brownie. All were good, as expected. Service was okay. Not the friendliest we've experienced, but not rude either.

My husband and I drive 2 hours to Wanganui to meet up with 2 Australian friends over for a family wedding. They chose this cafe as they lived in Wanganui many years ago and it used to be very good. Unfortunately it has gone seriously downhill. My husband ordered a large slice of pizza from the cabinet and it was so hard he couldn't cut it with a knife - he had to hold it and bite/rip it apart to eat. I ordered the sweetcorn fritters with salad and the two fritters were overcooked, very crunchy and dry. It is in a lovely setting by the lake and zoo, but we certainly would not go there again.

Our visit here was a quick lunch stop. It looked hopeful from the outside but inside it was shabby. Worst of all the girl behind the counter was unhelpful and had a hugely bad attitude. The food took forever to come and was expensive.
The cafe closed at 3pm and at 2pm the man there started stacking chairs. We could tell he wanted us out.

Not recommended.
