We both enjoyed their food immensely. I had the Creamy Chia which was a nice twist of flavours. My husband had the big breakfast with lots of options so it was just the way he liked it! He was impressed by the size as it lived up to it's name.

Wasnt impressed with the decor. It looks old and tired. Not a lot in the cabinets but they offer menu items. Partners omelette was very good and fresh. My toasted sandwich was soggy. Milk shake was ok but very sweet. Best thing is they have Hummingbird coffee which is fairtrade and fantastic.

Food looks good but they take ages and they are not receptive to any specific needs. Often very busy, but it beats me why!

We had breakfast at Mumbles when we first arrived in town. Ordered eggs with toast and I'm no chef but I could have done a better job. Expensive for what it was. There's a place across the street and down the road a bit (across from the pools next to the Irish pub), they looked really good with a decent... More

Its bang in the middle of Hanmer village and lost of tourists gather in the courtyard area for coffee and lunch or to just people watch. We had a good coffee at Mumbles before going to the Hot Springs and then after we stopped again for their daily Pizza special at $15. Oily horrible thing it was too. We had... More

We ordered a pizza which was really good. It took quite a while to arrive however the friendly waitress apologised for the delay..... it seems they had trouble with the oven.

Really dissapointing to come to such a lovely town and be served stale and old food with dehydrated eggs and be charged a bloody premium. Very unhappy and mostly dissapointed 😠😠 Just reflects badly on everything to be honest

Food nice (not a very big selection) and coffee wasn't hot. For a café (in the height of the summer season) to close it's kitchen at 2.00 pm (and not have a huge selection of cabinet food available) is not particularly inviting for tourists.
