Went there for lunch with my boss...oh dear...the place had a few people in there and there were plenty of staff whizzing here and there BUT nobody seemed to be doing anything! There was one lady in front of us but still took TEN MINUTES even to get served and that's standing at the til waiting!! Hate to think what it is like when it is busy

We had been told about Pomeroys' Coffee Factory so stopped when we visited the Whakatu Industrial Estate the other day.
We ordered a latte and a hot chocolate, plus two cakes, both gluten free. We were disappointed. The drinks were both very average. The cakes were just so-so. One was ginger oat slice and the other a citrus cake. They were both heavy and overly sweet. The service was very hohum as well. Was it because we turned up at about 1.45pm when it is all over for the day?
While this may be the best cafe around, especially on the industrial estate, I think they could do better, much better.

Coffee here is always great. Food is good for a snack or light lunch...always a basic range and well cooked.

So if you like a good coffee and a good pie then this is the place to find.
Located in an unusual place in an industrial estate it is somewhat out of the way. I would never have come across this place if I hadn't come with a local.
Parking is pretty limited so be prepared to walk a fee blocks or resort to stalking anyone walking hoping to take their park.
Venue is quite large and open inside with a good selection of cabinet food.
I had a beef and blue cheese pie which I thoroughly enjoyed !
Coffee was great too. Wish I took a pix of the pie or the venue as didn't realise there wasn't any pix already posted.
Cafe only open midweek.

Outstanding coffee and service from these guys. Our cycling clients loved their tour of the roastery and the superb coffee to kick start the bike ride. Super appreciated you guys giving up your precious time to look after us.
