Had an overpriced lemongrass chicken salad with no lemongrass, portion was stingy and under seasoned. The blueberry tart tasted gluggy and old. I was looking forward to lunch here but unfortunately it didn't meet expectations.

We called in for brunch, and yet another great New Zealand cafe. Bacon & Eggs and a Salmon Eggs Bene both beutifully cooked and served quickly. Great spot for a quick cafe meal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here and thought the food and service was excellent. We enjoyed playing noughts and crosses while we waited for our food (although didn't have to wait for long).
