Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is now known as Green & WhiteKitchen cafe. Situated in Raumati shopping centre on a corner this cafe gets the morning sun and is s favourite with weekend cyclists. A good selection of cabinet food, I had the vege stack served with side salad....I was not disappointed the best I have had for a while.The coffee was strong just how I like it.Thete are newspapers to read with your coffee.The service quick and efficient and staff are very polite.Decor is simplistic but with all those windows and sunshine why detract.More

Now named as Green and White Ribbon Cafe, it provides a good quality standard cafe fare. Location is really good, and is always popular. Food and drinks and tasty and good value for money. Seating options good, with a relaxed ambience.

Seems to have had a name change. Reasonable selection of counter food and menu items. The outside seating area was quite nice. Food and service were lacking though. If you like a pie microwaved to sogginess, this is the place to come. Service was rather...poor; they messed up the coffee order with a mocha turning up in a takeaway cup, an unordered scone arrived, and they forgot a cake. And beware of pensioners toy dogs that have not been toilet trained; puddles in the outdoor area is a bit off putting.More

We took a drive out to Raumati at the weekend, and decided to try somewhere new for lunch. They had a good range of both cabinet and menu foods, and while it was very pleasant, the service was quite slow, and I had to enquire...as to when the food was coming out. There's a small outside seating area for those fine days.More

Had a quick lunch with my colleagues. I did order the deli sandwich and was not able to finish the fries because of huge portions of the sandwich. Or maybe it was too much for me, but that is a compliment since you are getting...worth for every buck you spent. Food is very good. Store environment is comfortable with sufficient lighting from the outside.More

We used to come here often back in 2013-2015 but stopped after they had a change of management. Decided to give it another go and went there lunch after a bike ride with the family. Was pleasantly surprised with the food selection and serving size....We ordered the bagel and the salad, both were really good. They did charge 50cents for some extra sauce though..More

First time we had been here for sometime (used to love the deli presentation). Food nicely set out. We ordered from the cabinet. Paid. went to our seats. Coffee and water arrived promptly. And then we waited. !/2 an hour later our food arrived -too...microwaved hot to eat!! Our coffee had long gone. (maybe they are one of those places that hope you will order more coffee). The coffee was really nice. By the way it was steadily busy. We went in at 11:30. At one stage I checked the satf thinking there was only the counter lady and the coffee lady -but there were others. Oh yes the salad was lovely. But the focal part of our meals were horribly squishy.More

We went for a drive up the coast and decided to try the Garden Deli. It was quiet when we were there. The big windows make it so open and light. The food was good and we'll be back again.

Was told that couldn't swap bacon for eggs. Bit of a shame having such a rigid policy in place. Especially when subbing out a more expensive item for a cheaper one. And not very busy at all. 😕

My wife and I decided to go out for lunch,so we drove down the coast,and come across this cafe in Raumati.We got menus and seated,then the waitress brought over water,and asked if we were ready to order.The cabinet was full of yummy items,I asked if...the pork and fennell roll and mince pies were made on site,and they were so we got those,which come with salads and we ordered chips.the pie and roll were oven heated,as they dont like to microwave and told us it would be about 10 minutes,which it was,very nice pastry and the pork and fennel was superb,I tried a bit of the mince and cheese pie,which my wife liked,but for me was a little bland.service great,coffee and food great ,would recommend,also it has a park across the road and you can walk up a small hill to find a wonderful sea view with Kapiti islandMore

Nice position, catches the sun well inside and out. It has outside tables on the roadside and also in a courtyard to one side. Initial service to order my food was a bit slow as the lady serving was also delivering food to tables at...that point. But when she did attend to me she was quick and friendly enough. Inside is large, with a selection of table sizes and a nice lounge seating area in one corner. Less than 30 minutes after I arrived the place was almost full, inside and out, buzzing with chatter. They appeared to be mostly locals, familiar with the staff and with other patrons. My steak and mushroom pie looked homemade and was delicious - tender and tasty and had been heated in an oven rather than a microwave, so the pastry was lovely and flaky. The extra few minutes' wait is entirely worth it The included side salad was very tasty and colourful, with a dose of lentils and things to differentiate it from the usual cafe fare. My iced mocha did not score so well - in fact it was a little on the insipid side even before I asked them to add more ice because it was also a bit tepid. In all honesty, I wouldn't order that again. Overall the experience was good and a lot of other food in the counter cabinets looked worthy of trying, so I'll definitely call in again if I'm in the neighbourhood. And it's certainly popular, so plenty of people seem to agree with me.More

Great café on the corner near Raumati beach, in a village atmosphere, with plenty of seating inside, and out front on the pavement. Also a open courtyard to the side., which is excellent on a sunny day. Great meals and coffee, plus the cabinet food....Do try the pies..( picture) they have about 4 types, and only about $9 with a side salad!! Coffees are double shot, unless you tell them otherwise. Friendly staff too. Across the road to the park and beach...More

After much deliberation chose The Biggie Vegetarian breakfast. Eggs mushroom veggie sausage tomatoes and mash. Hot fresh and...so much but I did manage to eat it all .More

Good cafe for some classic kiwi sized served (ie huge). Had nice chicken salad. Meals going to other tables very large as well. Good service - love it when you order an expresso staff automatically check if you want double shot and extra hot water....Only negative was there seemed to be a lot of flies near rear of cafe - moved tables because of it. Place wasn't dirty - maybe just time of year.More
