It was Womad weekend so they would be forgiven if they were too rushed to be obliging but that was far from the case. There is a reason this is my favourite breakfast spot.

With a cool slight kiwiana vibe, great coffee and cool staff, this place is one of the original cool cafes in town. The chicken and waffles are pretty good, as is the mince on toast and the breakfast salad.

We were recommended this cafe and it quickly became apparent why. The service was excellent and the food was both innovative and plentiful. There is a wait for your food but that is because everything was freshly made to order. Personal favourite was mince on toast, doesn't sound much, it was splendid!

Lovely food and great service. Water on the tables is filtered (always a plus for me). Also one of the few places open at 9am on a Sunday morning. Obviously popular with the locals as it was humming when we were there.

The thing that makes this cafe good is the menu which has items that differ from normal. I had a delicious chicken waffle that was crispy and spiced just right. My husbands mince on toast was really flavourful

Not where I would reccommend...however the staff were great but the food was just average ...I feel that it is very noisy inside the cafe could hardly have a conversation.
