Good coffee and atmosphere there in the mornings. Have tried the scones with butter. Good but expensive. Nice sunny spot in the middle of town

Tiny cafe with lots of energy. Great coffee. Small selection of options for breakfast. We stopped in for take away coffees each morning we were in Mount M.

If you're like me - exercising early morn, there's one place you can be guaranteed a great coffee at 6 am, and that's at Luca. Supreme coffee blend, either to stay or go, Dan & his team will set you up for the day. Cheers guys & girls ☕️

Simply put, the best coffee in The Mount. Friendly staff, service with a smile and the coffee is amazing. I walked past 8 cafes to get to this one, totally worth it.

A local favourite! The coffee here lives up to it’s name, it’s a very good cup of coffee!! Great interior and location right on Main Street. We couldn't go anywhere without locals stopping us to confirm this was their favourite cafe. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone! Some of the best coffee we had in New Zealand....

Luca definitely has the best coffee in the mount and great service. They also have a sparkling/still water tap so you can grab a water while you wait for your takeaway. 👊🏾
