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.

Stopped in for a bite for lunch - deliciousness right there!! The long rolls are fresh and tasty with the perfect balance of salad, meat and relish. The muffins are next level!!! Blueberry and chocolate- best muffin I have ever tasted, no kidding. My husband...said the same thing. We will definitely be back.More

Awesome place to refuel on your way through. Excellent quality food (sausage rolls are awesome). Pricing is really good too - the same sorts of prices as a standard bakery, but the food is soooooo much better. Definitely worth a visit.

We have been looking for a good almond croissant for several decades now, ever since Gilles genuine French bakery in Rotorua closed. No luck so far, but this would be the worst. The pastry was heavy and doughy and the filling wasn't nice. Finally I...have decided I should make my own. Googling indicates it isn't hard to do.More

I went here because I heard these got voted best pies in nz, to be honest I still think better quality pies in Rotorua are the best but this one was way up there!!!!! It was so nice, the most beautiful pastry and meat with...a hint of curry powder, very nice and tasty. Also a cool little bakery cafe as well, little expensive ….. $27.00 for 2 mince and cheese pies and a sausage roll…More

Beautiful homemade pastries, rolls and cakes. Love that they do oat milk coffees! I have had their vegetarian rolls and their chocolate eclairs, highly recommend both with excellent coffee to top it all off.
