Visited Whanganui on our travels, this was most definitely our favorite cafe. Staff were friendly, the food was delicious and the coffee was great. Would definitely recommend.

Kids snacks starting at $4.80 for ONE PIECE of lolly cake? These people are committing daylight robbery. A 330ml Coke is almost $5! Go down the road and buy yourself some fish & chips.
