I have had this a number of times, not only because it is delicious but also always good. The service is attentive, prompt and helpful. As a cafe it gets top spot in the Horowhenua for me.

Local friends had recommended Whispers and now we do too. Lovely atmosphere, welcoming smile and great food. We had the Beef Lasagne and Tea for Two. Everything was well presented, tasty and hot. Really enjoyable. Particularly liked the local art on the walls.

So darn good, so ... busy! We joined a slow line to place our orders or choose our cabinet food (from an excellent selection). Well priced, good service with some unexpected surprises in the offering.

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.
