(My only issue is that meals are a little inconsistent – eg. one day the caesar salad was amazing, but the next day just average)
Unfortunately the food just doesn’t live up to our standards. We’ve eaten breakfast there twice now and both times have been pretty disappointing. The food is quite bland and overpriced for what you get. And the smoothies are very over priced. The coffee was ok but then most of the cafes serve good coffee.
I don’t think we’ll be back.
Con: Could be open a bit longer
I was really impressed after my last visit. The meals were so yummy, amazingly presented and a great change from the standard stuff. Staff was attentive and friendly.
I heard that they have hard plastic bonus cards, which I guess has pros and cons in comparison to the paper stamp cards.
I liked seeing fair-trade sugar and organic local drinks. Not sure if they use any other organic ingredients?
4pm is a good start and much better than other cafes. I still think it could be open much longer.
Good service and the coffee was really well done.
Food was not too bad, we had eggs with salmon and the ginger pancakes. Pancakes a little bit pricey at $17.50 for 3 smallish sized pancakes and small scoop of ice cream, in my opinion though.
I sampled a piece of my partner’s parsnip & rosemary risotto hash… which was delectable. Who knew a hint of parsnip could be so delicious? described on the menu as: “Breaded risotto cake with parsnip, rosemary & Parmesan served with roast baby beetroot, field mushrooms, watercress, poached egg and hollandaise sauce”… it hadn’t appealed to me… but next time I go back, that’s what I’ll be having!
But… I had to knock off a star… Why? Well… there were two very helpful waitresses… but a third one – who was our main waitress for the first half of the meal – was so unsmiling and blistering with negative energy that I was really taken aback at her highly irritated demeanor. My dad, who is the kindest soul… vocalized his empathy that she must be having a really hard day… and she softened a tad after that! But really… I was uncomfortable with her manner. (Dad said, perhaps she’s just had some awful family news. I said, or perhaps she’s just had a late night out?)
Regardless, it was an outstanding meal. My pre-schooler loved having some crayons & an activity sheet on the back of the kids menu.
The outdoor covered courtyard was really nicely presented, and had a great feel to it, and apart from the chill-wind blowing in from that one waitress, it was a pleasant temperature on an Autumn afternoon.
Cleanly kept, stunning food, and good for kids. We had a lovely time.
A table of 8 adults and one toddler – our meals all came at different times and the kids meal came out last.
One would think feeding the child first would be simple common sense.
I was drawn to the whole free range thing but to be honest it was over priced and I don’t think any of us would go back.
For breakfast the menu has an extensive range of tempting items. The WAIKANAE CRAB OMELETTE was a fresh, tasty and well presented.
We will be heading back.
It can get really busy here on the weekends but the food always comes out spot on. Favorite for me is the Corn Fritters. Coffee is always good but can be hectic getting a takeway at times. Some cool art on the walls for sale as well if you are in to that sort of thing.
