This cafe is clearly popular with the locals, lots of business people and others dropping in for a coffee and a croissant. The takeaway food looks top drawer. We had breakfast: nice fresh orange juice, great bacon but tie but the pancakes were a bit over-sweet with lemon curd, maple syrup, peanut brittle and cream on top of 3 pancakes:... More

There is always a good selection of food, best get here early though as their cabinets get pretty low over the lunch time! The staff are awesome, happy and smiley! The food is great, not too badly priced which is good. The area is good for big groups but it pays to book as this is a very popular place.... More

After almost three weeks in New Zealand and mostly shopping at 4 square or Countdown, this was a nice change. It has a great selection of fruits and veggies as well as gourmet chocolates. Small and healthy food store. Really enjoyed it. Cafe is right next door with yummy sweets.

Ordered 2 "really runny" poached eggs and got 1 somewhat runny and one not really runny. Colleague ordered 2 "really, really running" eggs and got 1 runny and one somewhat runny. Good to see separation between the two orders but not quite what was requested. Will be back...

Lunch time family birthday gathering. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. All drinks from tomato juice to all sorts of coffees very tasty. We were a group of 11. Very impressed with the time between taking our food orders and when they were delivered. Young children's bought out first as we had requested. All meals were beautifully presented and very...

Breakfast meeting last week at Cafe Raeward ... was impressed with large range of healthy cabinet food and cheery greetings by several staff. Enjoyed granola with lemon curd, yoghurt and berries. Delicious. It's ages since I've brought produce at Raeward, so again, impressed with the range of food available for purchase in the attached shop. Love Raeward's commitment to supporting... More
