...smoked fish in parsley sauce pies. Great salmon bagels too. And as for cakes, well, too many delicious ones to mention. I often call in here when I am in Havelock North as the food and the coffee are consistently good and the prices are reasonable. There are always plenty of daily newspapers so this is a nice place to... More

We stopped here for a quick bite on the way to Napier. Great New Zealand food, reasonable prices, and really friendly (but very busy!) counter staff. Inside and out was packed with busy diners, even on a winter's afternoon

It's what I would call an average bakery. I do love their crossiants for their price, which is a surprise when the rest of the bakery is so over priced for the quality. I generally regret coming to this place an in future only will for the crossiants.
