The Place:

You can sit inside this child-friendly cafe located in the Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of History & Art building, or if you sit outside and dine your overlook the picturesque QEII Park. There is quite a selection of food to chose from including our much loved Bene’s. The coffee was weak and disappointing.

The Service:

The place was clean, and the service was fast with friendly staff.

The presentation:

The meal looked appetising. The colour of the homemade hollandaise topped with the sprinkling of parsley and cayenne pepper teased my tastebuds when my meal came out.

  • The Benedict – good. Overall, no complaints but also nothing to write home about. You could get the bene with ham off the bone or bacon, of course I chose the bacon.
  • The Muffins – good, crunchy and warm.
  • The eggs – were slightly overdone but still had some runny yolk so will forgive that.
  • The Spinach – good quantity of spinach.
  • The bacon – was good, nothing special.
  • The hollandaise – nice hollandaise, homemade and a good quantity, i.e. not drowning in it.

Would we go again?

Yes, but it might pay for me to order a cold drink instead of the coffee.


Style: Classic 5/10.

Taste: 6/10. The taste was yummy.

Originality: 5/10 – It’s the pretty standard selection of either Salmon or Bacon.

Value: 9/10. It’s value for money. The Benedict (with either bacon or ham off the bone), Montreal and Florentine are all $14.90. I forgot to check the prices of the sides but judging the prices of the bene type meals I assume they are good prices as well.

Eggs: (how good they were): 5/10. Slightly overdone for my liking.

Overall score: 5.5/10
