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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Its a small cafe but you go in feeling like you are back at mums. We too often see young staff not service orientated. The young staff here were a credit to the youth today. They were wonderful. I walked away feeling my mum was...still alive. The breakfast just as she would have cooked.More

We cannot fault Mrs M's Cafe in Timaru. Delicious cabinet food and lunch menu. Who doesn't love an all day brunch! (Very happily cooked our bacon just the way we liked it too!) Good Gluten-free options were available. Coffee and Chai were also excellent. Very...warm and inviting staff. Clean and pleasant decor. Highly recommend this Cafe.More

My wife had a cheese scone which, as others have mentioned, was excellent. My muffin was very light and enjoyable and 10 year old enjoyed his caramel slice. He loved the "artwork" on his hot chocolate. Service was friendly and prompt. Just let down a...bit by the not very hot coffee.More

On a corner in the Main Street is Mrs Ms urban chic cafe. Reasonably priced with freshly baked and cooked food, offering superfood lattes and smoothies. Very cosy and the staff are courteous and welcoming. Thumbs up to the white bait sandwich chef did it...justice. Mouthful of joy , succulent and melt in mouth. Supreme coffee is the cup of the day and the barista did it justice. Thank you.More

New to town & popped in to meet a colleague & was sadly disappointed by a very lack lustre customer service. No effort to be pleasant & felt like they were doing me a favour by serving me.... a smile & hello can make such...a difference, but sadly missing here. Maybe a next time, maybe not.More

Service: the woman behind the counter looked like she couldn't be bothered serving people and had no smile. Food: was the food put in the microwave? It certainly tasted like it. Thyme with mushrooms? Since when is ciabatta toast bread? For the quality of the...food it was way over priced! Coffee: the coffee was the only good thing about this place The one star is for the coffee it is all this place deserves.More
