We selected this café off Tri[ Advisor and were not disappointed. The service was great and the servings were very large. Coffee was nice with a little bite to it. We dined outside on the veranda in the sun and it was a thoroughly enjoyable day trip from Palmerston North. Well worth the visit.

We hadn't been for a while and were looking for a nice spot for a coffee and a catch up. Once again, the service was genuinely welcoming and friendly, and the decor charming. We chose a table on the covered verandah - sheltered despite the rain and with a nice outlook (and sun on a better day!) because it's set... More

I had the best flat white I've had in ages at the Villa Coffee House. I'd recommend it to coffee lovers. They also have a selection of baked goods (i.e. cakes, muffins, scones, slices) and both our afghan cookie and our savoury scone were wonderful. They have some original mid-century retro decor which means that some of the seats weren't... More

A great little cafe in an old villa that is warm and comfortable and inviting. It's not huge and therefore you don't feel rushed or packed in. Hot chocolate is good and food is all freshly prepared - mainly scones, muffins and cakes with a small range of fresh and toasted sandwiches on offer plus sausage rolls etc. . It's... More

Nice folks and a loyalty card gives you an instant discount off your coffee! Nice sweets and quick fix cabinet and full menu available.And they are very nice if you have just taken your doggies for a walk around the bridges and need a dish of water and an outside table to accommodate your "party".

Obviously a great hangout for the locals which is always a good sign. Clean cafe, 60's inspired decor, very friendly staff & good coffee. The food looked good but we had just finished breakfast...& I was still tempted!

Good coffee and great atmosphere. Food is limited but what's there is yummy. Had a mustard seed and pumpkin seed scone that was delicious.

Visited this cafe while in Wanganui on holiday. The instant you step in the door it feels like home. The owners are so lovely and welcoming, as soon as you walk in you're greeted with a smile. The coffee is some of the best I've had - paired with a freshly made muffin, to die for!

Awesome cafe. Very caring couple. Everything is freshly made. Friendly place. Carrot cake is the best. When you are there it feels as though your at a friends place for lunch. The best coffee house in town. Open longer then most Cafes 7am-6pm Monday -Friday Saturday 10-4 closed Sunday. Very clean.
