Lime Cafeteria made the three hour drive from Auckland worth it! After a trip filled with sullen customer service, I'm most pleased to report we ended on a very high point. The lady serving us was warm and friendly and made us feel welcome. The gentleman who brought our coffee and food was delightful and brought us water without request.... More

I stopped in here for a late breakfast. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. I had scrambled eggs and grilled tomatoes and they were nice. I was also impressed that they had grapefruit juice on the menu (sadly I don't often see this)

The food was really lovely, however the service must have been the worst I have ever encounted. We had to ask for menu's, we had to ask for water and glasses. Did not stock red wine only white. Staff had no interest in the customers, all standing by the kitchen chatting. Our table was not cleared until well after we... More

We had coffee, eggs on toast and waffles with bacon and banana. The coffee arrived almost instantly it was ordered, nice and hot and perfect. The meal was served not long after, and both meals were lovely. The waitress was pleasant, accommodating and had a good sense of humour. The ambience was relaxing.

In town for another friends birthday. Called in for breakfast and had the homemade crumpets. They were delicious, well worth the visit and will be happy to return again.

The Lime Caffeteria was recommended, so we duly went there for breakfast while waiting for our bus. Good coffee, English breakfast for us, hot chocolate and muffin for our 6 year old. Good food at a good price.
