We stopped by for breakfast and the coffee was good but the service was rather slow. I think they forgot about our order even though there were only 3 other customers.

Super Ambience, Wonderful Location. Food is Spicy, the Peri- Peri Sauce is HOT. Chicken is just perfect

I absolutely love the grilled chicken. Vary the spicy level and find your favourite. The meals are well presented and the staff are so welcoming and lovely. We also tried the chicken burger which was very good but nothing beats the chicken and salad with a side of peri peri chips

There were sparrows flying around inside which was cute, but a bit off-putting when you are trying to eat. Overall - my wallet is still reeling. Go next... More

Coffee for only $2.50... Awesome! Has option to get it paired with a muffin at a decent rate. Would definitely come back here if I am looking for coffee while passing through Rotorua.

Good food, lots to eat - more spice the better. Something different with lots of kick. Good timing on food and lots to view and discuss while waiting. Close to lakefront and other attractions

Thought I would give it a go as they advertised breakfast. Took ages for breakfast to arrive, no toast, bacon overcooked and sadly coffee terrible
