Loved this bakery. So many different choices than most of the bakery’s in NZ. Great breads, danishes and sandwiches. Coffee was good too.

Firstly the coffee is ok. But it’s not a coffee house. It’s a bakery and they do that stuff really well. Filled rolls are excellent. Pies are pretty good. The only complaint is that they sell out early and selection is limited after 1 and...More

I stopped by here after a walk and had the most delicious custard square! It was freshly made and had a nice creamy texture, it was lovely. The coffee here is also very good- nice and hot "L'affare" brand :D All great value for money...More

We always stop here and get breakfast on our way to Auckland. As well as a filled roll for lunch. Its easy to miss, so keep a good lookout for the shop. So popular and worth stopping. Much better than anything you will get in...More

We visited the bakery looking for some nice sandwiches and a cake each. there was a choice of two sandwiches and only a few cakes. I guess you need to visit at 07.00am to get the best food. Its not a restaurant but a bakery.

This is a little gem of a bakery, I often stop for coffee and lunch to take to work. The sandwiches are delicious and generous and the coffee is good. The staff are friendly.

This is a great little find just outside Thames - well worth the visit - great breads, slices, etc and takeaways as well.

A really nice bakery, delicious sandwiches made with 'proper' thick bread, delicious filled rolls & french sticks. Always nicely presented & tied with flax. They have a good range of gluten free food & the best donuts I've had in NZ
