The Place:

This cafe is part of a franchise and located within the Mitre 10 garden store. They have a huge range of food including a kids menu, blackboard menu, gluten free, Paleo, refined sugar free, raw and dairy free, counter food for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a coffee and a small bite to eat.  It’s nice to have a cafe where you can go shopping afterwards.

The Service:

The service was fast given how busy the place was.

The presentation:

The food was plated up nicely, and the garnish of parsley sprinkled across the bene added visual appeal.

The Benedict – was delicious.  You had the option of salmon or bacon.

The eggs – the free-range eggs were slightly overdone, but also still runny enough.

The bacon – was cooked perfectly, had great flavour and there was a good quantity.

The spinach – came with the dish at no extra cost!  It was wilted just right.

The hollandaise – very much doubt this was homemade.

The bread – was good.

Would we go again?

Yes we would.

Scorecard:

Style: Classic 6/10.

Taste: 7/10. The meal was great.

Originality: 5/10 – Their bene automatically comes with spinach.

Overall score: 7/10

Location: 250-270 Featherston Street, Palmerston North
