Sit outside on a sunny day and enjoy a flat white with the Eggs Benjamin... You won't be disappointed. Great start to the morning, and the staff are super friendly. Fantastic ambiance, great food and killer coffee! A trip to Napier is not complete without a stop at Groove Kitchen Espresso.

This is an odd place with large DJ decks but no music. The food seems to be treating the diner to something different but I end up feeling like I just wanted it to be more simple, with more sauce.
