Ordered a cappuccino, the result was the best coffee I've had in living memory. !!! Spectacular. Additionally the barista's personality enhanced the experience. Attentive and thoughtful staff. Highly recommended. The food looked super, but we were after a coffee.

Popped in to this cafe having read about it in the Lonely Planet guide. It's in a pretty period building, tucked away from the main drag opposite the theatre (but only about a minute's walk from Clive Square and everywhere else central). We wanted a hearty breakfast and definitely got one. Came in at around $50 for 2 big brekkies... More

Wife, niece and I were looking for a break while cruising the shops, staff friendly, coffee great and milk shake very tasty but a bit pricey with coffee 4.50 and milk shake 10.5.

Been here a number of times. Today was a birthday and there were 15 of us. They were up to it with coffee and food delivered with charm and speed. These guys know what they are about. My eggs were perfect and bacon crispy. The mushrooms, oh so nice. Coffee is consistently good. My kids (adults now) got half portions... More

The woman at the till was very slow taking orders leading to long queues. No table service. Tried to order a second coffee but was told to join back of long queue. Food was good but drinks not great - iced chocolate was watery, also smoothie. Coffee so so. The ambiance also somewhat lacking. Overall average. Would not rush back.

One of the best cafe meals we have had. Possibly a little small but more than made up for in terms of quality. Great coffee too.

Had some good coffee and scones here. We came here on Labour day and a sign told us that the prices were 15% higher because of the higher pay for the employees. only strange thing is that we had to wait for 25 minutes because they were under staffed. so maybe hire someone extra if you charge 15% or give...

The Groove is a lovely setting with good food ,music and surroundings. Where else can you order a super-heated coffee and listen to great background music in Art Deco surroundings. Go check it out , you won't be disappointed

This is a great spot for brunch, especially if you get a sunny spot outside. Good food and friendly service.
