I think it's popularity is mainly location. What of like to see is some professional spring cleaning (not done by the hard working day staff), more innovative food made on the premisses (not bought in), more effort with soup options (beyond pumpkin variation). Full marks to those being the serving counter. Toilet blocks occasionally. Please ......spend some money and get... More

Went to this place with a friend for lunch over the weekend. I have been here previously and have been impressed with the array of food available which was well displayed. However, on this particular visit which was at lunchtime on a Saturday, there were not that many patrons there. Furthermore, while there was some food available, I felt that... More

We were in Avonhead and thought we'd go in for a drink and some afternoon tea. The food in the cabinet didn't look very appetizing like it had been there for awhile which we put down to it being mid afternoon so decided to give the food a miss. We ordered an espresso and pot of tea. They asked if... More

I have been here a couple of times now and every time I go the staff are very friendly and the cabinet display is always presented well. Menu food is fantastic. Would recommend to try this place as its under new management.

This is a large, sunny cafe and commands a good spot in Avonhead which makes it popular with families and groups of elderly folk, walkers, business people and so on. Lots of counter food plus lunch/breakfast menu to choose from but I've generally found the food fairly average. Soup comes in one style only ... pumpkin. Staff however are very... More

Enjoyed a simple but very pleasant Sunday lunch here - wide selection of well priced and delicious cabinet food, as well as a blackboard menu. Coffee was delicious as was the food, all at a very reasonable price. Pleasant service, and discount via the entertainment book a bonus. Nice selection of newspapers/magazines to read, good toilet facilities. Best of all,... More

Ok service and atmosphere. Good coffee. Went for lunch. I ordered the Caesar salad was disappointing. Others has the soup of the day which was apparently amazing.

The venue would not have been my choice but it was Mother's Day and my lovely wife had delegated the choice to someone else. The food was average, the coffee disgusting and we spent the whole time waving of a large number of flies that seem to live in the cafe. Not a pleasant experience. The food displays were half...
