Visited this cafe at lunchtime. Had a date scone that was very dry. The coffee was only Luke warm and was not very nice. Don't think I would return in a hurry.

Love the food, they change their menu sometimes but would be good to see changes more often. They could do with better chairs, they are quite cold to sit on, not nice when its cold. Service is okay can be slow some of the staff seem to get flustered quite easy, but overall a nice place to eat.

Although not heaving still nice to be able to have a conversation without raising your voice. The food selection was good. There's plenty on the board and I like the open... More

They can be appalling (for example, Mitre 10 at Paraparaumu) or great, like one I've been frequenting at the Mitre 10 in Stratford in Taranaki. Called the Ink Pot, this is a treasure of a place, attached to the... More
