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 coffee. Even better sausage rolls. Fantastic little cafe in understated kiwi style. Definitely worth stopping

Unassuming little place - very low-key. But we had a great coffee and the best toasted sandwich ever!

Stopped here with friends for brunch. Had their version of eggs benedict, and what a fantastic choice. Beautifully presented. Coffee was good, friend had tea and came out in a quaint little tea pot. When passing through give this cafe a go.

What a nice little tea and coffee shop. Its a great place to break the road journey. Staff are friendly and make travellers feel very welcome. Nice patio outside and there is a giant garden seat beautifully decorated outside for a crazy photo opportunity.
