On our two visits over the past year, we enjoyed the food, and found the staff friendly and considerate.
However, the fact that our old dog was in the vehicle each of our last two visits caused the untrained dogs on the site to repeatedly stand up against our vehicle, permanently scratching 3 of the 4 doors. The owner had been outside with his dogs during the time this was happening.
His reaction to the damage caused was aggression and foul language aimed at his customers.
Having never seen the owner involved in either the cafe or the gallery during any of our previous visits is now quite understandable. The operators are well advised to keep him clear of the customers!
There are many other options in the Whangarei area - we will not return nor will our associates.
