We went on the recommendation of our host and were presented with the breakfast and brunch menu at 2pm - so much delicious choice. The food was fantastic, it was just a shame about the coffee. Watery and bitter it rated as the worst coffee...More

Great to hear you had a lovely lunch! Shame about the coffee - we are generally known as the best coffee place, so this is disappointing. Whoever was on barista duties that day really let you, and us down then=( Sorry about the late response....More

Went for a coffee the other day and yes is was no different from the one I ordered 2 years ago, very average, like my instant coffee. I also wanted equal but they only had stevia or sugar. No cakes but I did go in...More

A bit rustic looking but otherwise quite adequate. Must remember next time (and happy to go again) to ask for less spice.

We’ve lived in Kerikeri nearly 3 years now and have somehow missed this little gem. Cosy and comfortable cinema experience followed by a superb dinner. We had to deviate from the main menu but the cafe was most accommodating and cooked us a lovely meal,...More

Popped in for a slice of carrot cake and a hot chocolate! Both were tasty and served with a smile. Lots of seating and a wide range of food to choose from.
