What a cracker of a place. Modern with art-deco twist inside. Not that easy to enjoy with two young naughty boys, leave at home next time. Great ambassadors of the Supreme Coffee Company of Wellington. Flatwhites were very good, perfect milk thickess, presentation and aroma/taste. Main letdown was that there were no kids/half options on the menu, the waitress wasn't... More

Wow, we came late without a reservation and they treated us well. We had great food and wine. It seemed like we should have had the donuts but we were too full. This is a wonderful place with an amazing staff.

Nice atmosphere and the service is great. The doughnuts are a treat and a novelty. Good choice of meals on the menu and a nice place to go for lunch or dinner. Only negative is that it does become quite noisy and echoes. Not somewhere to go for a romantic dinner or to take older people who are hard of... More

If you like doughnuts then you will live mister D's! Made to order they have a slight crouch but melt in your mouth dough served fresh out of the fryer with a side syringe if your choice if filling! I had the Jelly! Delicious! The breakfast was also perfect, eggs done just right and lovely bacons and the most wonderful... More

Perfect special date place. Came here a couple of months ago and service was a little average. This time it was amazing! The guy we had was really cool and was knowledgeable. The doughnuts were out of this world and if you're going to get anything - get the doughnut!

We enjoyed our lunch with glass of rosé, tapas plate inspired by Spanish Cousine, both were great, but the best part was coffee with doughnuts!!! OMG, I wish we could come back to enjoy it once again... ;) staff was friendly and quick, ease and nice atmosphere as well. We recommend this place!

Came for breakfast and coffee. Nice choice of inside or semi-out, with good easygoing music. Had poached eggs, tomato mushroom with white coffee all great taste and service was prompt. Didn't have wifi and it wasn't cheap -$21 so that's why not 5 star.

We stopped in here with friends who live in Napier as they said the place is famous for its donuts. Oh my they are amazing, hot sugar and cinnamon covered with an optional filling served in a syringe of chocolate, jam or custard. I have a sweet tooth and I preferred them just as they came without the sauce.

To be honest I'm not a real sweets person, have enjoyed breakfast here though with friends and they loved the Donuts and the sweet options and the service was excellent.
