Stopped off to break out journey today between Palmerston North and Wellington. Had a quick look around and chose Reds for a family coffee stop. Staff were disinterested, coffees were okay, toilets not very clean. Could do better.

This is our go-to to place for a delicious meal any time visiting Otaki, about once a month. We are never disappointed. The menu is contemporary and varied. The flavours are almost always in the seriously yummy category. We often bring visitors here and they...More
