We came to celebrate birthday.Service was good.Food seeved quick enough.The downside was the list of menu that was sooo outdated.And also the taste oh my God,especially when you order seafood,please learn how to cook!It was awful! We were traumatised by the taste of the meat,especially...seafood menus.Nah...it was a bad experienced.Sorry guys.Either you change the chef or tell the chef to learn how to cook for real...the quality will not improve.More

Great little local place for breakfast which is reasonably priced too. It is one of the only places to open early enough for those that would like the make the most of their day by getting out and about to explore.

A nice place to enjoy good food and a coffee. They provide water pistols to keep the seagulls away - a great idea and lots of fun.

Lovely cafe in a good position with outdoor seating overlooking the bay. Coffee and food was good and reasonably priced. The service was prompt and the staff were friendly. The seagulls hovered constantly, but there were water pistols on hand to shoo them away! Quite...a novelty!More

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.
