I visited to have coffee and it is large but was not busy. The coffee was weak and lukewarm and the place could do with a lick of paint- the doors had wearing off paint and it all looked a bit shabby.

My daughter and I popped in here last week, lovely friendly lady served us. We asked for an Iced Chai each to take away and it was delicious. The lady was nice and chatty and we came away very pleased. Have been here several times...More

Service, decor and food was amazing. I would certainly eat at this cafe again. There was even a play area for children. Highly recommended - pricing similar to other cafes.

I'm not sure why Mint isn't higher up in the restaurant rankings on Trip Advisor - they easily take the cake on my favourite restaurant/cafe in Wanganui. The staff are polite and are not over bearing like some places. Of the five or more times...More
