We had an overnight stay in New Plymouth and were looking for somewhere to have breakfast, the receptionist at the hotel recommended Emmalou as somewhere a bit special. We were not disappointed, the big breakfast and the coconut French toast were both amazing platefuls of scrumptious food. The small things make all the difference with proper loose tea, excellent coffee and the finishing touches to the meal just made it special - the French toast was decorated with edible flowers while the cooked breakfast had a hint of herbs and even the cores taken out of the tomato.
If I had a small gripe it would be that the place was very noisy and busy, the busy is not a problem but for those of us with hearing aids it was not too pleasant. But don’t let that put you off, the food makes up for everything.
