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.

Stopped in for bacon and egg toastie. Doesn’t get easier than that! It was awful! Threw it out. Tasted like they cooked the bacon in Jam or something. Sickly sweet and slimy. Never had anything like it. Won’t be back 🤢🤢🤢🤮

Definitely not the best bakery in town, but does cure your hunger. Flies in the cabinet and the fried/hot foods look like its been sitting there for a long time.

We went in expecting to get a pie and a coffee, saw the menu on the wall and my wife and I said oh well lets try it. So she had a Big Breakfast and I had French Toast and 2 flat whites, All for...under 40bucks, so Great value. We have to say we were surprised to get dishes that totally exceeded our expectations, my wifes Big brekkie had all the many items cooked perfectly and all hot! And the French Toast was up there with the best i've had, all capped off with great coffee. Well worth a look and we will be returningMore

When you see the familiar Bakehouse branding you know what you can expect to find inside. Reasonably priced fresh food and cooked fast food.

We dropped in for a coffee and bite and a couple of pies to take away. Pies for dinner, steak and cheese, were extremely tasty and well recommended. Unfortunately the coffees which looked made beautifully did not live up to our expectations and we left...them mainly untouched. Possibly the brand of coffee was not to our liking.More

A busy little hub and once you see what's on offer you know why. Great food, kind, friendly staff and probably the cheapest you will find in town. Sit in or take away.

Food and coffee is actually pretty good. The reason for only 3 stars is terrible customer service. You can’t even ask a question because no one speaks English. Not even good bye when we left. I have to mention that they also charge for extra...condiments-you get one tiny ketchup with your french fries and they charge 50 cents for extra. The same with butter. Ridiculous!More

Good food and a large range. Inexpensive. The service was friendly and the choices were good, sandwiches, hot food and bakery items.

I bought a smoked fish pie & a steak, cheese, mushroom pie. Their pies are delicious, filling and the price of the pies are worth the money. The pies are always hot enough to eat. Their donuts are good as well. Definitely will go back...there. The staff are always kind, and welcoming. There's always room for improvement.More

Yes, we are sorry we entered the door. We had two slices, both almost gave us the feeling they were as old as ourselves, we are into our eighties. As for the pot of green tea for two, nothing wrong with the actual green tea...bags, but made with chlorinated water, yuk. Will try next door next we r passing throughMore

Not a good look. Saw food being handled by staff without gloves and my wife was sick that night. May not have been a direct effect but still questionable.

If we want a cheap quick takeaway food you can eat at a table then go for it. This is a chain of eateries around NZ. The chips are simply dreadful cold and dry, warmed by only the infa red light.. The cakes whilst we...did not buy and did look nice and we may purchase some on our 2 week trip around North IslandMore
