Great coffee service and food- choices of plant based versus normal menu and also delicious cabinet food. This would be my new go-to place for cafe food in Greytown.

First time at this cafe & while the food was ok the service was a bit lacking. We had reserved a table for 4 adults & a toddler, & while I understand they were busy we were crammed at a small table - while two...people had a booth side to themselves? - . No one told us where the menus were or that you had to order at counter. Three of the four meals arrived, we had to ask where the other meal was. Very disappointed & probably won’t be going back.More

We took my in laws out for lunch this Saturday and had a delicious meal all round with great service. It's not a regular haunt for us, but met all our expectations and some!

Stopped here for lunch. A variety of food to choose from. It may have been what we choose but our lunch was nothing special. Cauliflower cheese balls sounded nice but lacked a cheesy taste. Garbage fries with pulled pork which hubby had was just ok...he said. When we arrived a lot of the tables hadn’t been cleared and we had to ask for our to be even though it was not overly busy at the time.More

Easter Sunday morning breakfast of hash browns, grilled mushrooms and tomatoes, vegan sausage and wilted spinach (vegan stack) and excellent coffee out in the verandah/garden area...perfect. Crisp but getting sunny morning, early before the crowds arrived. I wasn't in a rush so the longer waiting...time to get freshly cooked, well presented, tasty food was not a problem...and really people, if you're in a hurry at breakfast what's your day going to look like? And if you're in a rush, get cabinet food. I loved the food, the ambience, the 'mood', the sun, the trees, and the service and attention to detail.More

We have just had lunch at this place. After 20 minutes my husband received his order. 15 mins later another person went up and complained about how long her order was telling and they gave her my order! 5 mins later I got my bowl...of soup that was so hot I couldn't eat it. The food was okay but not exceptional. There are too many choices in Greytown for us to bother coming back here again.More

I enjoy stopping in here, its's my go-to whenever I'm in Greytown around lunchtime. They have an excellent selection of cabinet food and very comprehensive menu that caters many options for plant-based diets too. I can always recommend their sandwiches or pretzel bread hotdogs! Sometimes...on a busy day there is a bit of a wait - around 20 mins or so.More

So impressed by the large range of plant based options! So hard to choose when there are so many amazing ones available! Everything was presented so beautifully too! Great place to sit in the sun outside.

Good little cafe on the edge of Greytown as you head out towards Masterton. We stop here quite a lot as there is a good spot for the kids to play with their bucket of toys. They have a nice menu but our go-to is...the beef nachos which the kids devour. Just a note that this is a popular cafe and gets rammed at times. You might just need to keep and eye an getting you order served as they can get themselves in a bit of a muddle at times and service others ahead of you. Just one of those things so try not to get upset if it does happen.More
