Ordered a corn beef benny, which is a form of corn beef hash brown with poached eggs. Our expectations were quite high because having dined here previously flavours have always been good with all meals. We were not disappointed, this cafe one of the gems...More

We stopped here on Sunday after visiting the market across the road. Ordered food from the cabinet which was delicious and well priced. Great little spot.

Great place before or after a Movie and any other time. Lovely place to have a coffee and bring the dog (outside). Never seen the place empty. That speaks for itself. Indoor and outdoor coffee and dining. Lovely service too.More

Thanks Vivienne, Yep, we're doggy friendly on the patio or sidewalk, as long as they're well behaved pooches of course. No naughty hounds allowed, whether 2 or 4 legged!! And yes, we're very lucky to be a popular place for the locals....so see you again...More

Just passing through Kerikeri and came across this place by chance. All we wanted was a real sandwich and this cafe provided that. A freshly made, home style ham, egg and lettuce sandwich which was lovely. Also we brought a Glutenfree vege parcel, which was...More

Visited several times whilst staying in Kerikeri, sometimes to watch a film and grab a civilised bite, sometime just a great place for coffee and cake. Really impressed with their standards, food quality and friendly service, whether for a full meal or something rather less....More

Great little cafe and setting, don't let the name put you off. . You can just go for the meal. . But if you have time it's well worth taking advantage of the movie and meal deals they have on offer. .

I like the food but the English lady does not know how to make a good cappuccino. I had a takeaway cup, large. Honesty, it was a coffee milk shake.

Ok, that's not good. We are known for great coffee and consistency is important, so we have discussed this with her. Next time, say something at the time in person, so we can replace your coffee.

So...Welcome...To your place.
