Nice food, quick service, friendly staff. Enjoyed the quirky furniture and decor. Cool local artwork on the walls. Very clean toilets. Nothing extravagant food wise, basic menu. Wasn’t personal a fan of glad wrapped food in the cabinet and not particularly well presented, but the...lower prices reflected that, so no complaint here. Coffee wasn’t the best I’d ever had, but not the worst. Thanks, we’d come again.More

A nice enough cafe lunch, but then I picked up a bottle of chilli sauce off the shelf to take home as a gift. Paid $15. Then walked 1 minute across to the four square and saw EXACTLY the same bottle on the shelf there...for $8!!! And in a shop down the road it was $7!! Little Kitchen, it’s okay to charge what you like for your food and service, but it’s really really RUDE to price-gouge unsuspecting visitors like this. Especially when visitors like us are travelling and buying in order to support YOU while the borders are closed. SAD.More

Great coffee and one of the best brownies I’ve ever had. Warm it slightly and it is even better. Nice NZ cafe feel.

Had two breakfasts here with my family. The food was good, lovely coffee, friendly staff and beautiful outlook of the harbour. Set in what was the old post office I believe. Would definitely return.

Beautiful location and building- special piece of history here. Cafe busy and good coffee. The old post office - personal links made it a nicer visit.

WOW! Beautiful food served really fast and presented so well. The menu has a great selection to choose from and their cabinet food always looks great too. This place is licensed so it’s awesome to be able to have a beer or wine with lunch...while looking out at the harbour. The few times I have visited now there has been lots of seagulls but you can shoot them with a water gun which is great fun for the kids. They also have a local singer/band which is lovely but when you sit outside it is too loud to hear when someone talks to you which I did not like.More

Nice little cafe on waterfront, lovely staff, ensured everyone signed in. Coffee and food was okay. Unfortunately weather not great, but would have been nice sitting outside on a nice day

A really good coffee from a very fussy coffee drinker, and lovely friendly service, fast takeaway provided.
