“Not my favourite”

Casa Pequena Coffee Lounge & Restaurant
Ranked #10 of 23 Restaurants in Stratford
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 4, 2014

I had breakfast here early one morning. There weren't many choices in town but this might have been the wrong. one. I ordered eggs benedict and a flat white. the coffee was perfectly acceptable but the eggs - not really. The eggs were slightly over-cooked, the hollandaise had split a little and lacked enough acid for my taste. There was a strange brown sauce underneath that was quite sweet and wasn't needed and unbalanced the flavours completely.

Had a big day planned so were recommended to this café. Our order was taken quickly and the breakfast (Poached eggs and scrambles eggs) hot and tasty. Their take away look fresh and the place was clean.

Went to Casa Pequena for lunch with 6 others on Labour Day Monday as there wasn't much else open in town. We were warned that there would be a 30 minute wait which we were fine with. Last person at our table got there order 50 minutes later, they were obviously under staffed as by the time we left every table in the cafe was still covered in dishes, but the wait made the 15% extra tarrif even harder to swallow. They very obviously weren't paying anyone holiday rates as there was only 3 people working there. Only redeeming factor was when we finally did get our food it was quite good.

Breakfast was OK, really nice service, good coffee. Lots of locals, very traditional NZ cafe though, white toast hardly toasted the only issue with the scrambled eggs.

Old fashioned small town cafe - too many of these are going - great fresh food with lots of options, friendly staff, surroundings dated and in spite of this very comfortable
