Reviewed by Karen – November 2014
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 place was clean, and the service was fast with friendly staff.
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
