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.

Food was great. Dined at lunchtime on a Sunday, they were fairly busy. Disappointed at the range of gluten free options, ordered fries. Fries were good however. Did not wait long for food. Friend had avocado smash which she rated as awesome, a lot of...avocado on the plate. Coffee was lovely. Service was a little bit muddly.More

Average food, and expensive for what it was. Bad acoustics so very noisy. Bitter coffee and the place was cold!

Ordered and didn’t seem busy but waited nearly half an hour for takeaway coffee and scone. Said I was next in the coffee line but then made about 4 other orders before I got mine. Seems they priotize in store orders rather than takeaways. Only...because I had kids waiting in the car that it made it even worse. Not the place to go if you’re in a hurry and wanting takeaways.More

Today we waited for AGES for takeaways. The lady said we were next on the list but then gave coffees to other people in the cafe and made us wait another 10 mins for our coffees even though we ordered ours before them. It was...horrible and as a mum with a young baby waiting in the car we wouldnt have ordered if we knew it was going to take nearly half an hour for 2x coffees.More

Very friendly staff and good food. Good coffee and their breakfasts are a good start to the day. Loved the music soundtrack. Had breakfast each morning for 4 days. Recommend the Eggs Bene.

This cafe has a WOW reaction from us. We visit Cromwell every 3 months and have always been treated as welcome visitors by the wonderful staff here. The food and coffee are on point but the service keeps us coming back. Well worth the visit,...cheese rolls are exceptional (not all cheese rolls are created equal). To ladies who run this awesome place … we thank you ♥️More

Our experience at Fusee Rouge was nothing less than perfection. The service we received was absolutely outstanding, it is no surprise to us that this cafe was named best in NZ. From the moment we walked in, the lovely Nat and the rest of the...staff made us feel at home. It was a very personable experience with the team going above and beyond to accomodate us and our varied needs. Coffee was spectacular; best oat mocha I’ve ever had, practically an art form. Their cabinet selection was unbeatable with so many allergy friendly options. Cheese rolls don’t get much better than this (sorry Southland, but Otago is the new capital of cheese rolls). Walking away with big smiles, happy tummy’s and many memories. We look forward to returning soon. Until then, we will have to live vicariously through their Instagram posts. Lots of Love, Your medical studentsMore
