Been here twice now and you certainly would never go hungry.. very efficient and friendly service in simple clean surrounds. Savoury muffins are definitely worth a try... skip the soup with blue cheese..but another flavour must be up to the reputation that meant I had...More

Great cafe. We sat outside the back courtyard and it was lovely. It was a sunny day and was a lovely place to sit and while away a couple of hours. Lovely flowers and trees and interesting toilets! The food was delicious and the house...More

I am glad you enjoyed your experience with us. I believe the wine you were drinking was Tohu sauvignon blanc.

Used to be the best coffee in town but today's mochas were far too sweet. Over the top choc added and marshmallows when we said no thanks, undrinkable.

We stopped in Dargaville on our way from the Hokianga to Auckland. Blah Blah was highly recommended, but did't live up to it. We ordered a snack with a ridiculously small side salad. The coffee was o.k.

The name describes the staff attitude and the poor service! Kudos to the cook for the great seafood chowder! Too bad the process to enjoy the food was just so unwelcoming!

Visited Sunday 2nd April. The 2 male staff looked like they were annoyed about being at work on a Sunday - or just annoyed that they live in Dargaville (wouldn't blame them) The takeaway Coffee and slices I bought were better than the service ....More
