Stopped for a quick lunch en route to Wellington. Kids had choc brownie and caramel slice which were nice and sweet. I ordered the lasagne. Waited about 15 mins, but it was a weekend and the cafe pretty busy. The lasagne was delicious but unfortunately...More

Just go there. Great coffee, yummy food and warm atmosphere with a bit of funk. 3 day stay and went every day. It's that good.

Lynne and I popped in for dinner after a busy Friday, but a table was found, the service was excellent and the food even better. We will certainly be back.

Called in for breakfast and we were amazed by the range of options offered. Service was friendly and quick. Not pretentious, but the food was excellent. We had omelette and scrambled eggs. Both delicious and generous.

We have recently eaten at Whispers Cafe in Levin. Having breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. Great meals, great variety, good amount of food and lovely friendly staff. This place seemed very popular at all times of the day over a 3 day period, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We had corn fritters with bacon and ciabatta toast for breakfast. Huge meal and very cheap we thought. And it was great to have homemade fritter. Not the mass produced frozen variety. In fact all food seemed to be be made on the premises. Highly recommended.
