we called in after the Christmas parade and they were quite busy but the service was quick and friendly. However the choice was a bit lacking, this may have been because of the day. But that said I'd go again.

We stayed for lunch and were very impressed with the friendly atmosphere, well-presented food and great service - up until my son and I were up all night after getting food poisoning from either the savoury muffin or waffles, which we'd shared. Will not return.More

I love to eat and drink at this cafe that respects the poor cow and calves whose milk is being stolen. I have 2 pet steers that I rescued from the freezing works when I bought my lifestyle farm.

We have recently eaten at Whispers Cafe in Levin. Having breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. Great meals, great variety, good amount of food and lovely friendly staff. This place seemed very popular at all times of the day over a 3 day period, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We had corn fritters with bacon and ciabatta toast for breakfast. Huge meal and very cheap we thought. And it was great to have homemade fritter. Not the mass produced frozen variety. In fact all food seemed to be be made on the premises. Highly recommended.
