This is in a perfect location by the beautiful Virginia Lake and garden. I love the Art Deco building and the decor has been kept in theme. Today I had an excellent broccoli and bacon salad and my husband had a very tasty lamb pie....More

Went in for a quick bite on the road. Picked cabinet food and had to wait far too long. The cafe was quiet at the time. Food was bad, sausage rool was cold in the middle and broccoli salad lacked. Felt like it just had...More

I brought my German guests here. Great selection of food and beverages. Friendly service. And they sell healthy food for the nearby ducks! We will definitely come back. Sitting outside under a sun umbrella was lovely and relaxing.

Fantastic coffee and children well catered for. Friendly staff with good sense of humour. Thanks for the bonus fries and cheese bacon wedges with sprouts. Sorry kids were a bit scary😉

If you saw on a menu "Kiwi Big Breakfast" what would come to mind. Maybe I'm in the minority but I would've thought bacon, sausage, tomatoe, eggs, hash brown and maybe mushrooms, especially if you are paying over $18.00. Not at the Funky Duck it...More
