Two couples went visiting for brunch. I had the big brekkie which although pricey at $21, but it was cooked well and the food was tasty and great. My partner had the eggs bene and really enjoyed it.

Called for an early lunch and had superb pasta bake with excellent coffee. They do a lot of other things including brunches. Nice atmosphere and staff - we'd highly recommend this!

An excellent cafe opposite the theatre on Tennyson Street. The coffee — excellent 'mouthfeel' with creamy well textured milk. The chocolate and berry brownie (which was also gluten free) well balanced and gooey melt in your mouth! Pleasant and positive staff experience Thank you

Groove Kitchen is one of the 2 best places in Napier to get consistently good coffee. Has a good selection of meals as well. The service is very good.

We really enjoy our time at Groove. At least once a week we visit for coffee and a tasty treat - be it an eggs bene or ginger gem. I won't go anywhere else for coffee - Ben makes THE best
