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.

Long winded passport sighting and scanning with phone then allotting numbered tables. A 12.30 pm visit and almost empty food cabinets, then a long wait for coffee and longer for a piece of cabinet food. No atmosphere and gloomly looking customers.

Standard food and coffee as per many cafes. Average if slightly gloomy service. Rundown decor. Could do with modernisation and general refurbishment. New management could well change this.

Disappointing date scones that tasted very strongly of mixed spice and not at all of dates. Coffee tepid and weak. Good service and stuffed baked potato though.

OMG - had the mushroom and spinach bene on a potato rossti and it was great. Service friendly and quick although they were busy. Think it must have changed hands since I was last there. Wish I hadn't been in such a hurry to get...somewhere........ Will be back when out that way again - parking easy in Mitre 10 carpark - which was the main attraction for going here instead of Kapiti Beach as think market was on.More

Wow - not one really good vegan option but several! Had lunch here recently and have to say the food was excellent for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters alike! Very hard to find one good vegan choice let alone several. The vegan breakfast was a...massive serving and all of it was delicious. Highly recommended.More

Popped in to use up my birthday coffee voucher and first thing in the morning, it was dead quiet, which was lovely. The coffee was good and my scone was super-fresh, having just come out of the oven. The cafe has a fresh new look...which aligns with all the other Columbus Cafes around the country.More

We stopped for afternoon tea at Columbus Café, as we were visiting the Mitre 10. We had a yummy carrot cake and fabulous coffee - top marks for the coffee folks. We would certainly recommend for that alone.

Every time I come here for eggs I get perfectly cooked, hot scrambled eggs. I like the way they cook them so much that I try to copy it at home (hot pan and quick scramble). They also go out of their way to give...you the exact coffee you want. Seems simple but not all cafes manage these two basics.More
