Inside of an organic food outlet this was a hidden gem. The food selection is minimal but what was on offer catered or all. The young ones with us enjoyed the pizza

LOVE LOVE LOVE Chantel's! The cabinet options are fantastic but you've got to order their Bircher Muesli, it's incredible! I make sure this is my first stop whenever I'm in Hawkes Bay. The Organic Shop attached is fantastic too.

I really like this cafe but I must say the service can range from really friendly to a bit miserable - depending on who is working. Food is consistent really healthy and you feel healthy will every bite. shakshuka, banana gf muffin, buddha bowl, pancakes I have tired a fair bit with no complaints!

Looking for coffee and cake we'd left one cafe because they had so little choice of gluten free (chocolate brownie again!) We walked into the Kitchen and found at least 4 choices plus salads. I had the gluten free pizza and the chocolate and beetroot cheese cake. Delicious. The service is a little slow but worth it for the food... More

I've belonged to food coops for years so when we stumbled on this healthy store, we felt right at home. We shared a large salad (with three choices) and a Swiss chard quinche. Delicious!!! Thank you!

We found this very good Vegetarian restaurant in Napier and enjoyed a lovely lunch there. This should be listed so that Vegetarian visitors to Napier, NZ know it is available. Great restaurant.
