A good range of enticing cabinet food, and we thoroughly enjoyed our savoury and sweet muffins. Very pleasant and speedy service for ourselves and for other customers. Great hot coffee.

I had a salmon fritters. If the ingredients were listed in order of most to least, potato would be highest, with salmon the least. Smattering of salmon on top. Change in ownership 10 months ago means still running on previous reputation.

Had a super breakfast after almost 3 hours on the road from Auckland’s North Shore. Enjoyed the viby atmosphere. Even the eats in the glass cabinet looked super healthy and tasty. Will be back!

A lovely little cafe, with a nice selection of wholesome, tasty food. It is also open on a Monday. Carrot cake a must.
