Cool lass serving. Friendly vibe, decent coffee (although I like them smaller) ete etc . Nice savoury scone. Breakfast are simple and veggie I think. New Zealand style maybe. Found out my brother likes it too. Didn't even know he'd been that far north.

Great welcome, menu has small selection but food quality makes up for this in bucket loads. Home made chutney is wonderful. All of the menu is homemade. Takes all payments types (Bonus)

We had been recommended Velocity by fellow travellers, and we were not disappointed! It took us a little while to find it, but the fresh food, great coffee and friendly staff more than made up for that. Quirky and upbeat. Highly recommended!
