Great coffee, awesome food and friendly staff, what else do you need? We stopped in for brunch whilst in Dunedin for a weekend getaway from the kids. The place was not busy, but the greeting and service were top notch and the coffee and food...were awesome as well. It’s a 5 star rating from us and we will be back again tomorrow rather than risk a mediocre experience elsewhere.More

Carrot cake was lovely (and I’m very fussy where carrot cake is involved!!) loved the coconut and touch of oats. Tea was hot and a good brew. I’ll be heading there again as there was plenty more delicious home made goodies on offer!!

Food ok but way too slow service. Half an hour wait for 1x eggs and 1x bagel. Half full cafe on Easter Monday

Stopped in for Saturday brunch, we ordered avocado on toast and salmon eggs Benedict, the cafe wasn’t to busy but the wait for our food was way to long. When it was delivered we were starving, the Benedict was more bread than toppings and the...eggs well over cooked along with lacking flavour. The avocado on toast was pretty standard with the bread having a few burnt bits. Overall wasn’t good value for moneyMore

Visited this place with my Family last month when were in Dunedin and had a very pleasant experience! The service was great, lots of smiles and the staff all working together seemed to enjoyed themselves which is always nice to see. The food wasn't anything...special to be perfectly honest and the wait times were longer than expected, but they were very busy! A quirky fit out with the tables and decor, but would definitely recommend this palace to many! Only bit of feedback would be regarding the wait times, to let customers know if it will be more than 20-25mins, as luckily we were in no rush, but if you were looking to get some lunch on your break, you might be short for time.More

We were only in for a coffee which was not a bad coffee. Service was pretty slow and the tables weren't the cleanest,
