I have been here a couple of times now and every time I go the staff are very friendly and the cabinet display is always presented well. Menu food is fantastic. Would recommend to try this place as its under new management.

This is a large, sunny cafe and commands a good spot in Avonhead which makes it popular with families and groups of elderly folk, walkers, business people and so on. Lots of counter food plus lunch/breakfast menu to choose from but I've generally found the food fairly average. Soup comes in one style only ... pumpkin. Staff however are very... More

Enjoyed a simple but very pleasant Sunday lunch here - wide selection of well priced and delicious cabinet food, as well as a blackboard menu. Coffee was delicious as was the food, all at a very reasonable price. Pleasant service, and discount via the entertainment book a bonus. Nice selection of newspapers/magazines to read, good toilet facilities. Best of all,... More

Ok service and atmosphere. Good coffee. Went for lunch. I ordered the Caesar salad was disappointing. Others has the soup of the day which was apparently amazing.

The venue would not have been my choice but it was Mother's Day and my lovely wife had delegated the choice to someone else. The food was average, the coffee disgusting and we spent the whole time waving of a large number of flies that seem to live in the cafe. Not a pleasant experience. The food displays were half...

I regularly go to this cafe as it's only 8 minutes drive from my house. It's quite a large cafe, so I can book a table to meet with a large group of friends. The sun pours into the cafe, so it's lovely and warm. The service and food is good, but it's mainly the size of the cafe which... More

The four people in our evening dinner party all agreed that we received good service and enjoyed excellent food, with very generous portions. There's little doubt that the Café has suffered from negative reviews as we were the only ones there, not usually an encouraging sign! The staff clearly bent over backwards to give us a pleasant experience. Because it... More

Used to be a great local but food is terrible now. Staff chirpy. Took 25 mins to get salad and had to ask about it. Everything microwaved to death. Cake and fudge only good things. See many others rating poorly. Hope owners reads and makes changes
