Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 28 February 2022 via mobile

Appreciate their voucher in the entertainment book. Cabinet food was slightly overpriced for portion size. Good variety of cabinet & menu food. Ample seating.

Went at noon today to the cafe. I am a regular there. The shelves were very poorly stocked with food, well below the quantity and quality I have come to expect from this cafe. I almost walked out to go elsewhere then spotted one of...just 2 ham and pineapple paninis and I ordered one. That was nice. I will observe this place again in coming weeks. Perhaps COVID has made a temporary difference to this place. Time will tell.More

Large variety of cabinet food & items to order off the menu board. Seating both inside & out. I struggled a bit to find something keto but enjoyed the broccoli salad. The young waiter was very pleasant.

Hubby and I had lunch here after hearing a lot about it on the radio. Sadly disappointed - food was just “average” I had the chicken salad which I could have made better at home for half the price.

The best toasties and chips in Timaru and the best value too. My wife and had excellent coffees and the kids loved their smoothies. This is our new favourite cafe in Timaru.

Very disappointed, my son and I had a rare trip out together to somewhere that used to be a favourite spot. We ordered smoothies to drink which had absolutely no flavour. My son loves smoothies but couldn’t get past the half way mark. What put...me off ever returning though was being laughed at by the staff member when I said no to them making another one. Laughing at a disappointed customer is never acceptable.More

This coffee shop is my favourite. Not only good food but value for money. Also have a decent menu if you don’t fancy the cabinet display of food. Staff are very friendly and the best is that this cafe is consistent with all they offer....I visit at least once a week. Other coffee shops have a lot to learn from these ladies. Well done cafe MoccaMore

Reviewed 30 October 2018

We call in to Mocca when we can because of our initial experience (see my other review in June 2017) and this latest one confirmed what we already knew, i.e. that this is a great cafe with wonderful staff. It was an early lunch really...consisting of a quiche and coffee for me, and an "urban slice" and chai for the boss. None of what we ordered could be faulted in any way: tasty food and gorgeous drinks, all served by cheerful staff. Pricing is what one would expect anywhere, give or take, but the entire dining experience will continue to draw us to this place if it continues in the way it is. Note also, that Mocca has undergone a change in ownership since that earlier review, but the food and coffee has remained consistent, which is a good sign.More
