It was raining so we were looking for a cafe suitable for 2 small children, at the back they had a great toy box and area they could play. Pizzas were good.

Not just a coffee shop, the pizza is excellent! The staff very friendly. Homemade goodies for dessert are a must! You can dine in or outside.

We started our first visit with a delicious breakfast. Next day came for coffee and lunch, and it is busy because it is good. No wifi.

A delicious number of cabinet and menu options- would thoroughly recommend eating here. Pizza was exceptional and super fresh- most tables had ordered at least one!

Great pizzas - very rustic and good value. 70s vibe here as with the rest of the town. Not much else as far as eateries go unless you travel out of town

Really enjoyed our dinner here. All food was very tasty and the service was good. We also very much enjoyed eating in the back patio area. Breakfast was also very good, but they are not open early (believe they opened at 9AM during our visit). There appeared to be a wide range of options. We'll definitely dine here again if/when...

Always easy to pick something satisfying here, with good wholesome ingredients in everything. The staff are funky and smiley and show a good team spirit. The pizzas just hit the mark - these recipies have a history of satisfying many locals for many years

We sat outside on a beautiful day. We ordered the seafood pizza. It was very good. We ordered the small which was more than the two of us could eat. It was $20 NZ. Great stop.

Thank Mark1Rob
