We came here for breakfast. We both ordered the pancakes with banana and bacon. The pancakes were really dry and not tasty at all, probably frozen and not home made. The bacon was over-cooked and dry as well. Too much mapple syrup (I should say...More

Cafe Thyme was recommended for breakfast prior to a four hour car journey from Wellington to Hawke's Bay. I am so grateful for that recommendation as I found Cafe Thyme to be a delight. We arrived at the cafe shortly after opening on a Sunday...More

Lovely outdoor seating on a nice day so remember your hat and sunglasses. Food is always of high standard and good sizes. Staff are friendly and efficient. Lovely garden centre next door.

We popped in here for lunch after visiting the garden centre last Sunday. It was well patronised but by no means full. It was quite windy, so not so many people wanting to sit outside, but we still walked straight to a table inside. Disappointingly...More
