Stopped off at the Monarch Cafe for a drink and nibbles while walking around Pukekohe. Service was excellent, great tables outside in the sun or shade, we just ordered Bruschetta with our drinks which was lovely. Nice place to sit and relax, would like to return and try lunch or dinner one day.

We were here for both lunch and then on another day, dinner, during a recent visit to Pukekohe. Food is consistently good and menu offers loads of choice. Staff are friendly but service can be a little haphazard. The ambience is nice. A good experience overall.

Great coffee and great food, good wine and beer selection on a sunny day it is really nice to sit outside on the pavement area not so good when it windy, can be rather noisy if you are conducting a business meeting

Dined here on a Thursday evening. Place was buzzing. Very nice atmosphere. Calamari starter cooked perfectly. Pork belly main was also delicious. Loved the Spy Valley sauvignon blanc. Wine list intelligently selected with some nice reds that I'd like to go back and try. Staff curteous, fun and efficient. Nice food served in a nice atmosphere.

The Monach is the grand old lady of restaurants in Pukekohe, guarding the Queen Street corner for many years.
The food remains consistent and filling, the wine excellent.
Our last visit was slightly disappointing due to the slow service (over a half hour for lunch). The staff was attentive, and it was not crowded.
Prices were slightly higher than expected for lunch, but the food was excellent.
A great place to bring business guests, if the company is paying the bill, and you need time to discuss business.
