We loved this place during our stay in Napier and came every day for breakfast and road snacks. Loved the protein bowl as well as sandwiches. Food is healthy and tastes amazing.

While their primary customers are those seeking vegan, gluten free and allergy free food if you are not one of those don't discount this establishment. The food is fresh as, wholesome and down right tasty. You will not be disappointed.
