We have been on holiday road tripping some of the North Island and the coffee here was by far the best- strong & smooth. Service by the staff was lovely & genuine. Our breakfast was delicious with great presentation.

Lovely. Recommended. Wide variety of breakfast and lunch options. Friendly staff, good service. We have had brunch here several times over the past couple of years and it never disappoints. We even traveled from out of town to just get a coffee! Kid friendly.

We were looking for an alternative to our usual Rotorua breakfast spots of Fat Dog and Pic Nic and came across this venue- well, the chap busking outside drew our attention to it. Friendly service and a delicious and healthy menu featuring some unusual and...welcome options. We still went with the French toast (Pain Perdu) Highly recommended.More

This was the best breakfast we found in Rotorua, coffee was good and all the food was fresh and homemade would come back again when in Rotorua. Located in the hub of the city easy walk from most hotels.

Beautiful food and amazing coffee. The chicken salad was so delicious and my husband had the chorizo and squid salad which was also amazing. Our son who is gluten free had the buttermilk chicken and chips and loved it. Great selection of cakes in the...cabinet as well. Couldn’t rate this any higher.More

Lovely surprise. Popped in for a quick lunch whilst passing thru Rotorua and had one of the best lunches we’ve had in ages … wife and daughter are Gluten Free … and these guys are awesome for this. Daughter had buttermilk chicken and chips and...declared it the best chicken she had ever had. Wife was similarly smitten by her chicken salad. I had a mixed breakfast which was solid - really tasty. Highly recommended.More

Late breakfast and lunch for the family. Brought them back after an equally good meal a couple of years back. Chicken salad was delicious. Fresh salad, generous chicken Portion, well presented. Oaty caramel slice to die for…and awesome coffee! We will make this a permanent...part of our list of places to which to return!More
