Ordered the vegemania and tarty toast, both came out quickly and were well presented and delicious. My long black was strong with no extra water as asked for, the other had a lemon, ginger, honey which was throughly enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and...helpful, the cafe very clean and quite busy. Overall we were very pleased and will be back when we are next passing through Whanganui.More

We opted for the tortilla with a side salad and smoothie each and were a bit surprised at the cost. However it was a very tasty meal. This cafe is in a very old building on a side street in Whanganui and until we stumbled...on it for lunch I did not know it existed. Service was good and quite prompt.More

I just love this cafe. The food is excellent and you must try their fantastic tomato soup with a large fresh warm roll with butter. I have eaten here often and it never fails.

I had the Bene True Story for breakfast. Fantastic! 2 poached eggs on potato and garlic rosti plus very fresh spinach and pesto baked mushrooms. NZD 20. Excellent large flat white to go with it NZD 5.50. This is a great address. :))

Good honest food and delicious. I am dairy and gluten intolerant and they cater for the likes of me. Also prepare vegan dishes. Would thoroughly recommend a visit there.

We had a meeting lunch and it was a bit late for the usual lunch crowd so nice and quiet. Lovely vegetarian choices along with the range of other stuff.

Wonderful food, I am in love with their eggs benedict! Brilliant coffee and iced chocolates. Love the sweet little outdoor setting, nice touch having the herb garden and strawberries outside.
