Warm and friendly with an interesting menu. Warkworth and surrounds are worth a visit, particularly the wineries

Decided to not have anything to eat - just coffee - very limited and scarce selection of food. Liked the setting it was relaxing

Good food and good coffee. A lovely place to visit if you want a bit of peace and quiet. Right on the riverbank. Very popular..

Took a overseas guest for lunch. Totally disappointing. The place seemed under staffed and young staff unable to keep up. The chicken pasta salad left us feeling ill. And just about every table sent something back.

This cafe has the best location in Warkworth & sitting outdoors in the sun watching the comings & goings on the river is very pleasant. They make a reasonable tasting coffee & their food is nicely cooked & presented with some good cabinet options. Lovely helpful staff. I prefer Ginger for the quality of the coffee & food though.

pretty average toasted sandwich. Lovely setting overlooking the Mahurangi River but not very inviting and little atmosphere

Well located in katakana markets the coffee was awesome for two very thirsty travellers. A menu selection with black pudding and hearty English fare as well as healthy options. All very home made and focused on simple flavours and good servings. Look forward to the next visit. Maybe lunch next time.

Thank Caroline C
