Food good and welcome friendly, but I wouldn't waste my time with the coffee. Firstly, they use Illy beans (freshly roasted in Italy)? With so many excellent freshly roasted NZ beans available, I don't understand why you would do this if you are interested in making good coffee? Good coffee starts with fresh beans. Secondly, the latte I asked for was too hot and had little or no foam. It was like instant coffee. The replacement I asked for was little better, with a bit of cappuccino froth on top. Maybe I got the apprentice coffee maker, but for a busy Saturday afternoon coffee should be up to the standard of the food and the establishment. This is not hard to do. So, sadly, after having a good evening dining experience previously, and seeing the high standard of the food this cafe prepares, their coffee experience was very bad today and let them down. Probably try Brown Sugar Cafe just over the way.
