Love how they put their business name on my hot chocolate. Warm friendly staff & they offer great food selections....who can say "NO". Spoilt for food with the temptations on offer, always nice to return & chat with hometown friends, whether it's outside on the footpath seating in the sunshine or snuggled inside during winter.

Good people, tidy atmosphere, efficient, and consistent. Lots of parking, almost like the brain central for Wanganui. Recommend to anyone.

This is one of my favourite coffee houses in Whanganui. Mark makes fantastic coffee and the sandwiches and slices are some of the best in town. Great tables outside in the sun. A local's favourite.

Jolt is a true coffee bar with xtras, from the comfortable decor (including some outdoor tables) to the quality snacks and perfect range of coffees. The owner is generous also to the community funding or sponsoring many local charities. A Whanganui gem.

I often pop in for a coffee - I enjoy the fast and friendly service as well as the always perfect flat white. The decor is unfussy and colourful, good location for catching some sun and doing a bit of people-watching. Not a cafe that does meals, so if you're after more than a coffee and slice you'll be out... More

Awesome service, best coffee, and always quick. The standard is always consistent. Friends and family from out of town always stop at Jolt for their coffee fix and best thing was, they were open on Christmas day.

We had food and coffee here and both were really really good. Service was great and staff were friendly - really caring for our comfort and best experience of their hospitality. I'll always take my coffee at this cool place.

We had been recommended this cafe as a good place to come for a decent coffee, so our expectations were high. Unfortunately the coffee was only average at best, with quite a bitter after taste.
