Called into this little cafe after a mornings shop at the Farmers Market. Have to admit they did the best coffee of all that I tried in other Gisborne eateries. Loved the little authentic European pancakes (savory).

Very little café, cute, and very friendly and helpful staff. I had a "Bordeaux" smoothie, which was very tasty. I'll go back to try more of them!

Really lovely people. We had beef snichel which I cannot spell and salad. My boy had a Russian crepe which he loved but the best thing was the smoothies. The guys who run it are very nice too. Happy to make changes to the menu....More

I always go to Rennies for my choice of smoothies! They are so good and a great price. They also have a selection of other yummy treats which aren't badly priced but so good.. and they are healthy! Bonus.

absolutely top-notch smoothies and juices-best we've had, anywhere, anytime, both for outright flavour and value for money. food largely centred around pierogy in various flavours-the two we had were both very nice. Will go again next time we're in Gisborne!

Small Café on side street but has great coffee and lovely smoothies and friendly service - well worth it.
