This place is large, people are friendly and the location is great. BUT, there are a few things that I just don't like about this place. They do not have free wi-fi, which I think is ridiculous in this day and age. Plus, the have these nice side salads that you can buy, but ONLY if you buy a main. They won't let you just buy the salad. I see that as price gouging and forcing you to buy more food than you really want.
Fantastic location and the friendliest staff. But the chef doesn't seem to like vegetarians much. And what is available in the veggie savoury options all has cheese. Not every vegetarian wants cheese when they eat out! I didn't really look at the sweet options (mainly waffles) because I prefer savoury. Cabnet food looks ok, but again very limited on vegetarian and mostly sweet options. Coffee is Mojo which is one brand I'm not a fan of but forgot they serve Mojo until after the coffee arrived! It also seemed quite expensive and I would expect those prices in central Wellington, not Porirua. However, what I did eat I liked very much so I'm torn as to whether I'd return again.
My favourite cafe in Porirua. The coffee is always good, the food is delicious and staff are friendly. It's also a great place to have dinner on the evenings they're open. It's a little more expensive than some other eateries in Porirua but the high standard of the food is well worth the cost.
