The food was lovely, I ordered the jammin salmon and the coffee good, but the light was quite dim on a gloomy day. The building is poky. After reading the reviews of it being number one in Napier I was somewhat disappointed.

In town for a few days and tried this place because of the rating on trip advisor, couldn’t fault it. Eggs Benie was great, pesto and basil added a nice break to the rich hollandaise. Well balanced Grapefruit juice was freshly squeezed

Enjoyed the coffee. Nice to have half portions offered. Egg let the dish down as not runny and potato was a little dry.
