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.

March 27th 2024. My wife and I met her brother who is an amputee and his wife at this Cafe for lunch. Have to say it was a very nice experience. The staff rearranged the table configuration so as my brother inlaw could have his...small mobility type scooter next to him. I thought that was so thoughtful of them, and I was really impressed. We initially had coffee whilst we had a catch up chat. The cafe was pretty busy, which indicated to me it was a popular food outlet. The time was about mid day. The menu was full of interesting fare. I chose Lambs Fry which was delicious. The other members of our party had omlettes, which they also found very tasty. As I have said nice food, nice experience, great service, reasonable price and we will return at some stage. I won't mention the torrential down pour that Matamata turned on for us. Well done .More

Very good food but had to sit outside and attend to service ourselves. This was because of Covid-19 and the policies of the owner.

I was so pleased to see the posters in your window the other day as well as a general mask exemption for your staff. It is so good to know that there are finally some businesses out there who do not discriminate against non-vaxxed customers....I shall definitely spread the word, and will call in again soon. Keep up the good work. :-)More

Coffee fantastic, stop the rest was weird, service was a yeller at the counter to get all of your order! Bacon buttie was a bad so bad toasted cheap white bread sandwich drowning in crap cheese and lots of raw onions with some bacon, crepe...was super average with raw onion! Go for coffees, not much else!More

A fantastic ALL are welcome non-discrimination cafe which allows everybody to purchase food and coffee. Great service and great All Press coffee! Plenty of seating outside and around the cafe to sit with groups. Delicious cabinet food with full menu items also available. The savory...scones are a must and have to be my personal favorite. Plenty of parking if you are passing through.More

Del and his lovely team couldn't have been nicer to us when we stopped off in O-Del-Emz on the Rail Trail. So helpful and kind and cracking food too. Definitely try out the lovely homemade cakes.

My wife and I called in here while in town recently for lunch based on good comments mainly on Facebook. We both ordered creamy mushrooms with toasted brioche and sautéed potato. What we got was a chunky mushroom soup. It was nice enough, but was...far from what we expected. The toasted brioche was a small offering that lacked the integrity required of toast for soaking up the juice. My coffee was OK, but certainly not worth raving about. As for the server asking if we wanted knives an forks, that was just weird. Everywhere else just puts the cutlery on the table. I’d likely go back, but would be asking for a description of the food to check that their interpretation of the menu item matches mine.More

We called in for lunch on a busy Friday. Allpress coffee was the attraction and there seemed to be a lot of takeaways in progress. Seems to be a favourite spot for locals. We ordered two pulled beef bagels from the cabinet which looked OK...but this turned out to be a mistake. They arrived with an odd squirt of aioli underneath the bagel and contained some odd sauce and cheese. As the afternoon wore on, both of us felt rather queasy. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone. The coffee was as expected. Pretty good.More

Dropped in for some lunch during our tour and noticed this cafe. I had the chicken, Brie and cranberry brioche roll. This was an mouthful of absolute delight. When the roll was presented, you could see the “love” in the making of the roll! The...cafe is only small but it is full of delightful sandwiches, cakes and pastries. Well recommended!More

We ordered sandwiches and, strangely, each of them came with a big squirt of aioli on the plate and under the sandwich. It overpowered the flavour of the sandwiches and made them soggy and messy.

Fantastic stop for lunch. Food we selected was very delicious and there were options for both vegetarians and vegans. In fact the range of both cabinet and menu items was excellent. We had yummy and filling chickpea feta filo rolls followed by a decadent and...delicious lime and coconut slice. Service was very friendly and prompt and it was a perfect place to stop en route. Parking at the door . Highly recommended.More
