Nice foods and a good setting. Food seemed a little over priced but that us pretty much the norm for Greytown. Toilet is outside down the back, I am glad it wasn't raining.

We were recommended to have breakfast here by friends and it was lovely. The portion size was good too. Took away the most delicious croissants for later in the day.

Stopped here for a break and enjoyed great coffee (AllPress) and delicious food (orange and almond cake is a classic and lovely bread). Friendly staff. Worth a stop.

I stopped in here on a rainy Sunday and was blown away. The filled croissants and soup was amazing. Going to come back for sure.

Passing through Greytown my wife and I thought we would stop here for a coffee. One look at the food on offer lead to a couple of danish pastries and a veegetable curry pie. These were delicious. Quite a small and modest place but if you want tasty food then this is a great place to come.

We visited on the way to and from Napier (ex Wellington). Food was delicious and the coffee was very good. Would love it if we had something like this in our neighbourhood! Try the quiches and sausage rolls. Croissants are also excellent.

We stopped here on our way to Napier and were blown away with how delicious everything was. We enjoyed a coffee and hot chocolate, with a citrus tart and orange and almond meal cake. The service was excellent and you can tell how much they care about the quality of their food. Highly recommend.

We had come in from the Whairapa after tramping so were fanging for a good coffee and a snack and we hit the bestplace in town straight off. Males staff very welcoming, but female found it hard to crack a smile. However she made really good coffee and we had a sample of some very tasty pastries. Would be back... More

We stopped for breakfast here. The staff are very nice and the food good. We ordered flat white coffees and they came in proper mugs. Just what we wanted to start our day.

Thank Alan P
