Been here today after the dawn service. We had vegetarian savoury pancake and egg benedict with spinach. They were tasty and big portion. I also had the bounty bar slice for dessert. It was yummy.

Bethany's was a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly, especially Amber who was very bubbly and hospitable. She also made the best iced coffee I have ever had. The food was delicious, and there was a wide variety of choices on the menu. I give Bethany's a high recommendation. Go try it for yourself. ☕️👨🏻‍🍳

My wife and I shared another great night here. The Scallops were delicious, the Beef, well rested and tender.The wine cold and Dessert finished off the evening. Can't wait to get our hands on another couple of Loyalty cards and a new dish or two on the menu?

Great coffee and food. Very friendly staff and place was spotless. It is in a beautiful location right in the Square. We sat outside on a fabulous Palmerston North day in the sun. What more could you want.

Hi Jo & Reuben Just a quick email to say a big thank you to you and all the staff who looked after us at my 50th birthday lunch on Saturday.

What a great spot and I'm always partial to coffee being served with a chocolate fish even without having to order a mocha! Friendly, nice outdoor area and a good place to meet

Stopped in for a hot drink and a muffin. Nice close location in the inner city. It was a beautiful day so wish I could have stayed and enjoyed the sun longer

Very tasty Salmon special (with cous cous, yoghurt, green beans, pumpkin purée) and delicious fillet steak cooked beautifully. Only disappointments were the kids rock hard chocolate cake and the staff lack of concern at hearing an adverse comment. Service was efficient for the main course but then really, really slow for the kids dessert. Attentiveness dips when they get busy.
