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.

Great selection of cabinet and menu items. I enjoyed brunch there a couple of times with some interesting and different options. Good service. Love the bacon buttie.

Seemed quite a busy place. It was good to see they had QR code ordering which made it a lot quicker for us as we didn’t need to lineup. Good to see a hotdog on the breakfast menu.

It’s an order at the counter kind of vibe and mid morning during the school holidays meant a solid wait at the counter before we could even place an order. We (finally) ordered three coffees and two meals off the morning menu. The first coffee...(long black) arrived within five minutes of the order. It was good and hot. About 10 minutes later the food arrived. I had ordered eggs on toast (no toast due to dietary issue) with a side of bacon and a side of mushrooms for a whopping $25+. What arrived was two eggs on two tiny bits of bacon with three tiny mushrooms. After staring at what was clearly less than $5 of food for a minute or so my coffee arrived. You could tell by looking at it that it wasn’t going to be good - a very unappealing dark brown foam with an acrid bitter taste. A few minutes later our third coffee arrived, also visibly not drinkable. Neither of those coffees should have been served, nor should we have had to wait for such a long time for them. The staff seemed unconcerned with what (and when) they are serving customers. Disappointing.More

We popped in on our way back home from a caravanning weekend. It was the Kings Birthday weekend so we knew it would be very busy. The staff told us to expect a delay of up to 45 minutes, but we were happy to wait....Our hot beverages arrived after a few minutes and were really good. Our order arrived after about 40 minutes and was well worth the wait. We felt sorry for the staff as there was a constant stream of customers, but they coped superbly. The menu is typical for a breakfast focussed business. We’ll definitely be returning next time we’re in the area.More

Quite a barn of a place, situated on Greytown's main drag. Excellent food & drinks menu. Free WiFi. Charming service, but not over-quick. A few orders all at once seemed to swamp them, and some things came out to the tables quite slow. High ceilings...& hard surfaces so was quite noisy. Children's play area, toilets, community hub feel about the place. Didn't eat but the food looked delicious.More

Busy cafe with plenty of seating, we ordered eggs bene and the full breakfast with coffees. Coffee, my latte was not memorable, same said for the full breakfast. Eggs bene was average, didn't really enjoy the muffin it was on. Oh, and it's all overpriced,...more expensive than we had elsewhere on this trip. It was busy so maybe they some thing right, just not our selections.More

Extermely average. Long wait for meals (50mins) but the place was about a 1/3 full. Think we must have arrived as the chef had a break. Heaps of people out the back in the kitchen but obviously no efficiency. The side of bacon was see...through, had no cooking colour to it, like had it even been on the grill , and it tasted like ham??More

My wife and I had brunch in The Offering in late February 2023. I had eggs benedict, she has scrambled eggs on toast. I have had eggs benny many times in many restaurants and cafes in both New Zealand and other countries. Honestly, The Offering's...offering, so to speak, was the best I've ever had. My wife's eggs on toast was also excellent. The facility is on the large side for a kiwi cafe, with both indoors and outdoors (sidewalk) seating, but people obviously love the place so they need the room. It has a warm and friendly feel to it. Even better, the owner mentioned to me that they were donating all their coffee proceeds that day to the Napier cyclone flood cause. The good people of Greytown are lucky to have this place.More

Nice little cafe in Greytown, always busy. Had the bubble and squeak which was nice but could have been improved by toasting the bread until it was crispy. Well seasoned and plenty of bacon. I added hollandaise which was nice but the soggy bread was...disappointing. Coffee was good but arrived after the meal. Caramel slice nice to finish.More
