Met friends for lunch at the cafe on a rainy HB day. Great food selection, friendly staff and warm and inviting. Clearly we were not the only ones as the place was packed.

I have visited this cafe on several occasions and it never disappoints me.
The food is amazing. I had the aranicini with salad and on another occasion I had the chorizo luigine...yummy. The food is beautifully presented and the relish and vinaigrette are so tasty, that I popped across to their Pantry shop to purchase both. There is also a lovely souvenir shop next to the cafe. A great place to bring holiday visitors so they too can enjoy the cafe experience and most importantly purchase some exquisite chocolates to take back home.
Definitely will be back in the future.

Visited with a friend for lunch on a busy Sunday. Service was not super friendly but was very efficient. Seemed a bit light on floor staff. Garlic mushroom was a large serving size but had alot of oil / butter but was very pleasant. Friend had a stuffed potato and was also too much oil for her. Coffee was nice.
Nice covered area out the side for a colder wintry day.

What a great place to have lunch (or breakfast). Tasty food and coffee. The service was efficient and friendly. We would definitely return to this café if we lived in Napier. Tourists would be very happy here as not only is there the café but there is a chocolate shop selling lots of chocolate and fudge. As well, a shop selling clothing, jewellery, NZ products etc. Plus there is a Museum to look through (I think there is a charge). I recommend this place.
