our family of three dropped by here on a Monday evening for dinner. A bit cold - until they closed the front door to stop the breeze blowing through. But otherwise excellent. Great staff, a large menu - pizzas, mex, organic stuff - great choice of beer and wine, and very good value for money. Recommended

We had lunch here and sat outside in the back garden area. The food was very good, homemade pizza with a quinoa-based salad on the side. Good, friendly service as well.

Visited during a brief stay in Takaka. Place was busy and warm, food was diverse and our dishes were tasty and generous. The falafel salad was delicious and the pizza also up to scratch. Thanks

We had dinner here one night recently and ordered a large pizza with 2 different toppings, a smoked salmon one and a vegetarian one. They were both very tasty and very generous amounts.

Amazing selection of food on offer to suit all dietary requirement. I do feel that it is slightly overpriced so maybe not the best place if you are on a Budget. I doubt you would be disappointed though. I visit every year on my Golden Bay holiday.

It was raining so we were looking for a cafe suitable for 2 small children, at the back they had a great toy box and area they could play. Pizzas were good.

Not just a coffee shop, the pizza is excellent! The staff very friendly. Homemade goodies for dessert are a must! You can dine in or outside.

We started our first visit with a delicious breakfast. Next day came for coffee and lunch, and it is busy because it is good. No wifi.

A delicious number of cabinet and menu options- would thoroughly recommend eating here. Pizza was exceptional and super fresh- most tables had ordered at least one!
