  • Great place. Good options for kids, very generous portions, good atmosphere. Highly recommend.
  • Nice food and with a view of event going on in the square.
  • Great location, fantastic food and decent coffee
  • Overpriced food and drinks. Staff was unperturbed and indifferent toward customers. WiFi was fast and layout was spacious.
  • I've just moved to Lower Hutt and already visited this cafe several times, as well as recommending it to visiting family and friends. The coffee is delicious, the food well priced and extremely tasty, and the staff are all very friendly. Well worth visiting!
