If you are in the main shopping street resist the other coffee shops! Go to Eight Eight! Wonderful cakes - huge sizes!! The cheese scone was more like a mini loaf!! When you order your cakes they com with a fruit compote and creme fresche as standard! Coffee is excellent and heir are seats outside as well as inside.

We stopped here twice while visiting the area. The french toast was incredible. Breakfast was always $40 plus for two, which is a norm in New Zealand but well worth it.

I've had the eggs Benedict a couple of times now and it is really good quality food! There is a really nice selection of sweet treats here too! It is a little pricey but as a treat it's a nice place to go

Came here for brunch with the girls on our trip to the mount. And it was great! Service was good. I had a blueberry and caramel slice and the eggs benny. Nothing to complain about at all, the flat white was also made to perfection. A definite trip for anyone in the area

Stopped in with friends, lovely small cafe with a great seating area out the back. Loads of options, all delicious. I had the porridge, and it was so yum. Coffee was also great. We will be back! Thank you!

I think with a cafe like this, best to go in with the mind set-small town, no ones in a rush. If your on holiday, just relax and enjoy the pace of the cafe. service was a bit slow and as my partner and I are caffeine addicts we found it hard when our food came before our coffee. But... More
