I drink flat whites, this is the first place I've ever been where I've been asked if I'd like it extra hot, which I LOVE. This guy takes his craft seriously which is such a treat. Also loved how they do half size eggs benedict, all the yum with none of the overly-full feeling!

We loved the fact that you can buy full sized meals and half size. Perfect for brunch or a light meal. Our waiter was also great, and made sure we were all completely happy with our meals. He also brought out a replacement egg without even being asked, as he noticed that one was slightly firmer than the others.

Incredible coffee! This barista and amazing all round guy was the best. He was warm and welcoming and made the best coffee I have had in Nz. As a barista myself it's always a treat when you get a great coffee, not just one but the three coffees I drank over the duration of our breakfast were inpecable!! Thank you... More

We had breakfast here as a family after my sisters wedding, before we all left to travel the world individually.. the coffee was amazing, with the option of regular or extra hot, and the food was stunning! Very easy place to eat for people with allergies... the potato cakes were amaaaazing!

Lovely little cafe opposite the theatre friendly staff and atmosphere.We had eggs Bene done Ben's way on a potatoe rosti with mushrooms pesto sauce with the most delicious flavour some sauce. Then to top it off super ginger muffins served hot and fresh Ben's Grandmas recipe with nice coffee. Would certainly recommend this cafe for fresh flavour some food.

Went here for breakfast. Ordered a couple of hash stacks on the basis of other reviews - it was okay; wasn't terrible but wasn't anything amazing. Coffee however is a different story - they seem to take pride in making coffee anyway you want it and they know how to brew. Would come here for that alone.

We found ourselves just outside of the main Napier district and happened upon Groove. The service was very good and the food was even better! A real find just off the beaten track which we will definitely seek out on our next visit.
