Today we enjoyed early breakfast before hitting the road to Wellington. We ordered the house made muesli. It was Devine and the serving overly generous,but too good to leave any. The coffee was quick to be made and equally perfect. Highly recommend.

Every time I get a coffee from this cafe, I take one sip and feel happiness. Flavour is rich and has depth. Coffee beans are very fresh and the machine is obviously well maintained. Thanks for making my day
