“A late breakfast”

I was recommended to stop for brunch at Cafe Express, and was not disappointed.
Great coffee, perfect omelette, and Margaret had the "Baby Grand", essentially a lady's version of a "boy's big breakfast".
Great central location on the square.

This cafe is a very good example of a Kiwi style cafe. I had breakfast here recently on my first visit to Palmerston North in over a decade.
Service was friendly and efficient. Food was great. The menu was what you would expect from a good cafe but the prices were cheaper than most other quality cafes ive dined in. Coffee was great!! Cant fault this place. Five 5/5 for me!!

Had a one night stop in Palmy with friends. Saw the sign that said cafe of the year, so decided to stop and eat brekky. I had the baked beans and they were yummy. Friend had muesli and enjoyed.

My only minor criticism would be that no butter was offered with the toast just Olivia spread. Would highly recommend though.

Followed trip advisor and went to cafe express for a late brunch. Although the place was quite dark and it was a very cold day, the atmosphere in the cafe was warm and friendly.although it was very busy the staff were very helpful and soon found us a table. With so many people the noise level as quite high.The big breakfast was great and the coffee even better.
