Looking for good coffee, stayed for lunch - which should tell you something. Good and varied menu, but make sure to look in the cold cabinet where I found a delicious broccoli, cashew and haloumi salad.

Two visits: beautifully cooked omelettes and full breakfast. Bacon crispy but not dried out, coffee dark and delicious and staff very helpful. Plus - a really good atmosphere - busy without being noisy.

They have a good selection for carnivores and vegetarians. NZ cafes sometimes serve up the same boring dishes for vegetarians but here I struggled to choose what I wanted! Varied, tempting menu with blackboard specials and decent coffee!

Artisan food is homemade and hand crafted, from its inventive menu, right through to its understated home spun decor and friendly service. We have an exciting choice of creative breakfasts, brunches and lunches, along with a large selection of delicious, quick and tasty cabinet options. We're also very proud to serve Kokako fairly traded organic coffee.
