A favourite cafe when I'm visiting Whanganui and I have enjoyed the bacon and eggs on previous occasions. Felt like something different and opted for the soup with grain bread. Rich tomato soup, and it was just divine. Followed that up with a cinnamon pinwheel scone and that was delicious too. A very busy cafe every time I have come... More

So we really enjoy going to this cafe as they have the best Date scones. However on the last 4-5 visits the staff have either forgotten to bring an item such as no saucer for the tea strainer, on one occasion they forgot the scones.

The last time I visited his cafe a few years ago it was called red eye cafe. Strangely, red eye cafe seems to have moved down the road and mischief is located in its old building. There is new food and it appears to be busier. The staff were friendly and polite. Service was efficient. I had the seared lamb... More

Staff were so helpful and friendly. We just had coffee, scone and a salad plate. Liked just about everything about the place. Our point for improvement is that the music is just a bit too overpowering for our tastes. And with wooden floors and furnishings, there's little to absorb sound making it just a tad too hard to have a... More

Mischief is a regular go-to for locals with a taste for great coffee and filling 'real' food. The vibe is arty and relaxed and the courtyard out back is a favourite spot to hide with a laptop or friend. I come here often, as do many locals, which is a sure sign this place is doing something right. Recommended.

I really wanted to like this place - the decor and branding was great, the menu was small but perfectly formed, and the service was really warm. Can't fault those elements. I ordered the kedgeree - it took a long time to come out, and when it did I found the smoked fish to be overpoweringly sweet. Unfortunately the sweetness... More
