Review of Wright & Co.

Reviewed 2 March 2022

Called for a coffee - place was busy but got a table outside. Ordered our drinks and a snack - the cashier was a bit flustered with being very busy and forgetting Covid protocols - evidently they'd changed and there was no sign in or asking for vaccine passes - rules have changed but at our age would prefer to keep them going. Coffee arrived with the scone I ordered - pleasant enough service - the scone though was heavy and doughy - not great. Our used dishes were taken as soon as finished. Apart from the scone all was what was expected - it just seemed very rushed. Can't complain about service - scored down with food and rush by staff

Food and service is always great with good value and consistency. Lovely and inviting staff add to the warmth of the cafe.

Expensive.
More than $42 for two coffees, a scone and a small slice of cake. Coffee only lukewarm. Not particularly friendly staff. Disappointing experience.

In the central hub of Havelock North sits this great cafe with ample seating, very generously spaced apart indoors and a few tables dotted about out the front too.
The menu is fantastic - for example when they say full breakfast it looks like a FULL Breakfast. Quite a few of the brekkie items are traditional options skewed with a modern twist.
We arrived for lunch and shared a cheeseburger with fries and the pork bao.
The burger was generous in size and the only fault was it lacked the cheese part of the cheeseburger but overall it was juicy meat, fresh veg and a yummy light, slightly sweet bun.
Extra points for serving the fries with plenty of aioli sauce - too many places scrimp on that but these guys made generosity on the plate a prime element.
The pork bao was standout absolutely delicious - pork juicy and pulling away, a light hint of sweet chilli sauce and a bun that had a Chinese yum char style taste to it.
The drinks menu is equally interesting and plentiful.
Take note - the service is prompt and efficient but you do need to order at counter which we didn’t realise for about 10mins :)
We will of course be back to this cafe and next time might try to sneak out with some of the cabinet food which was regularly coming out from the kitchen fresh and smelling devine.

Snappy little cafe in Joll Rd - good selection of cabinet food - coffee decent as well. Water delivered to the table - nice touch!

Grab a window seat and watch the locals go by.
