We were lucky to get there. We were served the best coffee we tasted being in New Zealand. Also cookies are good, but specially there muffins with berries

An in-store cafe strategically located adjacent to the food and kitchen sections which has an open and spacious setting. There is a good team of staff providing an efficient and friendly service. A good range of quality cabinet food is available for a snack or...light lunch. Our morning coffees were excellent and we enjoyed our cheese and date scones.More

I often go to this café. The food is excellent and the coffee is consistently good. Until recently it was the cheapest coffee in town. The price has gone up after having been the same for 5years. Can't complain, as its still beats lots of...other coffee shops at $4.50 for a latte. The atmosphere is nice and a look around Ballantynes is always a treat.More
