Fantastic personalised service. Best real fruit ice creams around. Good prices, fantastic range for a small Harbourside venue and a welcoming staff. Will return

Excellent coffee and ice creams together with interesting and informed chat from Robin who can and will express views on anything from any where. Food is excellent with specials well worth trying for something just a little different.

I think Redrobin Coffee has closed. What a shame. The owner (and barista) was a super friendly and easy-going guy. He educated my Yank hubby on NZ coffee drinks and we all (6 of us) had a great time chatting away for almost an hour.
