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.

Well worth eating here, the staff are so lovely, the cabinet/bakery food is so good and there is plenty to choose from. Excellent coffee too! I would dine again and I definitely recommend.

We are travelling and have found many cafes serve warm (not hot) coffee. But today at Café Nosh we had hot coffee and a great taste, excellent. We also each had a pie and both of us were delighted with it. He had bacon and...egg and I had a smoked fish. Thank you for a great lunch.More

Travelling through and stopped for coffee, savoury potato muffin and savoury scone. Good coffee and soy chai latte but serving up a half cooked scone, really? When they cut it in half and butter surely it was obvious... dissapointing

You can get a great well-made coffee here, delicious tasting sausage rolls, and beautiful raspberry lamingtons stuffed with loads of fresh cream exactly how they should be. Will eat here again.

Ate here this morning- had the Nosh special breakfast and eggs Benedict. Eggs were undercooked and basically just a sloppy mess of eggs and hollandaise sauce. Pretty much inedible. Should have stuck with a scone. Do not recommend.

Visit with daugther and G-children for lunch, special occasion. The staff was very helpful, and busy, unfortunately the plates on the counter was dirty, and when we took cutlery from the counter, there was still some food on the forks. They were possibly washed, but...not checked for cleanliness after the process. This does tend to spoil the experience. Otherwise, looks nice, but I don't think I will try iit again, before I have tries some of the other establishments around there.More

We spent 2 months in Napier and discovered Nosh early on... the staff were always particularly friendly, and offers great cabinet food selection if not ordering off the menu (which include amazing breakfast options). The tables outside are pet friendly... a huge plus for us....Thank you for always making us welcome!More

An excellent selection for breakfast to suit all tastes and very reasonable priced. Opens at 6.00 am for the early starters. Also, they sold a superb range if sandwiches and wraps for later in the day. Freshly made that morning and very good prices. Courteous...staff and spotlessly clean.More

We stopped in here for brunch and found it a little disappointing. I had an omelette and found it very average, only ate 1/3 of it. Husbands coffee was okay.

We go most days for lunch and most often enjoy the Chrisse Club sharing it amongst two. The staff are always so friendly and helpful. It’s so popular its often hard to find a seat. Lunch is always good here, in the summer you get...to enjoy sitting outside under an umbrella or when its a wet day its nice and snuggly inside. Our favourite place in Ahuriri.More

All the food was very nice! Only thing was we asked for what we ordered to be fresh not toasted but it came out toasted even though they put on the order for it to be fresh. Still good though

Bland uninspiring food and not very clean. My lolly cake was not sweet, the water glass was dirty and the corn and zucchini fritatta was tasteless. My daughter had a delicious cheeseburger with good chips though, but she couldn’t finish it as it was too...messy to eat. She did say it tasted amazing.More
