Found this place looking for somewhere to habe brunch. Menu is interesting and has some different choices as well as more standard eggs etc meals. Coffee was good, my partner's tea was unfortunately not great. Busy place frequented by locals.

Went there for breakfast: innovative menu and definitely the best breakfast we had in New Zealand so far. If you do go, choose some of the more unusual options.
