Walked in off the street not knowing what to expect and wasn't digging the decor or lighting to start with. Staff were friendly & attentive when ordering, lots of people in quite a big space. Bacon benne with the rosti was good but the pulled...pork burger & chips were really good. Good strong flavours coming thru in the pork & tender as well. Chips were a bit cold but good favours none the less, will be going back to try out the rest of the menu.More

Modern cafe with good selection of cabinet food. We were here for breakfast and our meals were very tasty. Coffee is very good too.

Delicious French toast and a very nice hot Chocolate. Amazing cabinet food and good menu options. Very nice rose with lunch too. Slightly disappointed with COVID expectations, our vaccine pass wasn’t checked but our friends were. Staff also didn’t all wear masks properly. Needs to...be some consistency. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Beautiful cafe with lots of space.More

Have been befire and lioved the food. Service was never great but friendly enough. Today was terrible. Service was just awful but it was more the indifference with which we were treated, almost as though we were an inconvenience. We won't be going back.

This is in the middle of the business district so that's a bit odd. has plenty of parking shared with the ANZ building. everything was delicious excepting the iced coffee - was basically just cold coffee with ice cube. service was brilliant, its very rare...i find a menu with more than two things i want to try but i could have chosen all but one item....More

Came for lunch on Saturday. Service was excruciatingly slow. Waitress was very casual / perhaps new to waitressing. Took ages just to take our coffee orders, then had to wait ages to get our food order taken. Was there an hoot behind we got our...meal. Despite there only being two other tables of people. The food was good however. Efficient , quality service is everything for me however. Just another Tauranga cafe / restaurant with hopeless service.More

Service very slow took 30 minutes to get food. No waiter took our order or give us water - we had to do that ourselves. Food below average - Bangladeshi curry watery and no heat. Fish tacos just pan fried fish & slaw with a...little tartare sauce - nothing spectacular. Nice decor and cosy on a wet day. We won’t rush back.More

Our Saturday morning go to...this Cafe is spacious and central caters for large groups as well. The breakfast menu is always delicious- you must try their sour dough comes all the way from a Waikato supplier. Friendly if you want to bring your fur babies....Great coffee we love it and highly recommend.More

Beautiful venue. Light and bright. Lots of seating, indoor and out. Service is fantastic. I go twice a week for the scone (any more than that I'd be the size of a house!).
