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.

Used to be my favourite place for the best brownie & coffee. However, been a while since I visited and now appears to be under new management. Coffee was milky and weak, brownie was powdery. Won’t be going back.

Great brunch on Matariki Friday - everyone very happy with their choices and food. Waffles were a big hit and our fussy eater enjoyed the lasagne.

I take my brunch spots very seriously. We drove down from welly as it was mentioned that food here is great. We were a group of 15 adults and 6 kids and had booked in quiet in advance. We did end up being 12 mins...late but the cafe owner was Informed about it and said it would not be a issue. Positives - The staff were friendly, kind and helpful. Some dishes were really good. Not so cool - We waited for nearly an hour for our food. Some of the orders served were wrong, some too salty and some too oily. I am not sure if they were short-staffed..but the chef could use a hand for sure. The staff were friendly, kind and helpful. Some dishes were just rushed out of the kitchen. Maybe next time don't take on big groups and decline the request if catering to the basic needs are hard. To serves a dish from the specials menu took close to 1.5 hours, we also ended up returning a dish and that just broke my heart and to add to it, it was interesting and surprising to see how every other group of folks who came along after we had ordered food were served first🥺More

Absolutely delicious. I had a tropical smoothie and they made the salmon cream cheese bagel gf for me, which was a perfect balance ( & the gf bread was toasted perfectly). My husband’s flat white was very good and French toast yummy. The service was...super attentive and friendly.More

MPE has had new owners for a few weeks now and he definitely knows how to cook! Breakfast was delicious and fresh. The coffee was lovely and hot, not too strong. I would definitely recommend and will be back to try out their late night...dining!More

Great little spot, really friendly staff who made me feel welcome as a solo diner. Guided me to the best table so i could plug my laptop in and do some work as well. Great coffee, and cabinet food. I understand they have new owners...as well, so they were eager to please and look after me.More

This place was always busy, with good food and coffee. Went in there to order a take away coffee from there ..the coffee was so bad I threw it away. I understand it is under new ownership which is probably why it is no longer...busy.More

Save yourself the pain and do not go here!!! Wait time for drinks was at least half an hour and we didn’t even order coffee then we ended up having to wait over an hour for food! The service was terrible and it was so...loud with the manager crashing with the broom on chairs while cleaning around people eating their meals! I ordered the açai bowl and it was far from it and tasted like watery bland smoothie so I sent it back and then got some gluten free bread (it came out as a bun) eggs and halloumi which all I could taste was vinegar from the eggs!!! Our other meals were poor and not enjoyed. This place is honestly terrible so please don’t go here!!! Waste of money and time.More

Service was lovely and friendly, the bottle of wine washed away the bad taste of food, we didnt eat much of what we ordered it was that bad. Maybe they shouldn't be running an eatery. I hope i dont get sick.

Coffee tastes like hot water, nothing that is even close to taste like coffee. Prices not listed on the walls or anywhere (unless you ask for a menu). My wife n I had two zips from our cups and left. Sorry, a waste of time!

I think the chef is out of their depth and can’t make basic food that is on the menu. Will never return and the staff aren’t wearing masks just to make it worse.
