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.

Has Whispers changed hands? Went there on the weekend expecting the same lovely food and fairly reasonable prices. Food was ok but not presented particularly well. Ordered one of the lovely mince pies, on previous occasions this was served with a salad and a tomato...More

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.
