“Great coffee and cakes”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We ducked in here for a coffee and cake and loved it so much we came back the next day for lunch. The coffee is superb and the 5 or 6 cakes, slices and tarts we tried over 2 days were all superb. Lunch was quite good, though not up to the standard of the coffee and cakes, and both days, service seemed a bit indifferent. Tables were also quite cramped with very little room inside so grab a take away coffee and a cake and then head outside to enjoy them among the stunning surrounds.

“Best Coffee in Town”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Stopped in this beautiful town during a cruise with Diamond princess " Sydney to Auckland ".
We attended this restaurant twice during our one day stop. The coffee, cakes and meals were excellent. If you are in the area, do yourself a favour and have a coffee, meal ETC.

“Don't try and move a table - you'll get your hand slapped!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

I think the food is all right at this cafe, but to be honest, we had no chance to enjoy it as our group of 4 tried to move two tiny tables together down the back of the cafe (next to an unappealing empty ice-cream machine) and we were immediately told: ''Oh we don't move furniture here!!'' Well naturally enough we took our business elsewhere - to a place up the road that didn't mind the furniture being moved and they had brilliant customer service too!

“Not bad”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Not as French as I hoped it would be, but still good. Their pain au chocolat (or "chocolate danish" as they called it) were yummy when fresh out of the oven, but not so good when I came in later in the day. Their real fruit frozen yogurt was delicious. It's a shame it is so squishy inside.
