Came in through the big bank doors to this lovely cafe. Great cakes. Beautiful fit out. Very Stylish, very personal cafe. The vintage clothing and household bits and bobs were also carefully considered. Felt like a trendy Auckland cafe in the middle of Te Aroha which is a small country town. Will definitely return next time am in Te Aroha.

Other reviewers said that Banco Espresso was good, but when we pulled in for morning coffee and cakes on our way to Hamilton we were blown away by just how great it was!

In the front of the cafe was a collection of vintage clothing and accessories – a real credit card bender for the girls! While the actual cafe was clean and funky with a great selection of cabinet food including their award-winning Blubard cake – a “must try” temptation.

On such a beautiful sunny morning we gravitated to the outdoor courtyard with its range of comfortable furniture including gorgeous cushioned couches – just the place for a romantic encounter. The service was prompt and courteous and all carried out by a team of young women who enthusiastically went about their work - well done!

With reluctance we dragged ourselves away and continued on our journey but the sentiment was that we should have stopped for lunch! But we will be back to face the temptations at Banco Espresso.

Pretty nice płace on your way to Coromandel. "Banco" is an 150 years old building. Spectacular victorian time architecture. Great time for coffea and pictures.

We had a gluten free person, a vegetarian, and two who ate everything and they were perfect for all. They also have a few antiques and some fashion to brose while waiting. Reasonable prices and good, fresh food.

Took two visitors there recently for a Sunday lunch and disappointed with very limited food available. But, as always, service was excellent and ambience great.
