Coffee on the Terrace – Palmerston North

Coffee on the Terrace –

Reviewed by Karen, June 2016

The Place:

There is mainly indoor seating with a few tables outside.  There is a vast array of cabinet food as well as a blackboard menu.  The food is plain, basic but hearty.  They offer catering for your morning teas, or gift options such as Christmas cakes and baking.

The Service:

The service was pretty average.

The Presentation:

The Plating was pretty average.

  • The Benedict – other than the eggs overdone there are no real complaints about this dish, it just wasn’t spectacular.
  • The Eggs – were hard when they arrived which is always disappointing when it comes to an eggs Bene (love those runny eggs).
  • The Bacon – was nice.
  • The Spinach – came with the dish.  Nothing memorable.
  • The Hollandaise – straight out of the bottle.
  • The Muffins – were okay but a bit chewy.

Would We Go Again?

Can’t complain about the price, and the coffee was free so can’t complain about that.  Would I go back?  Unlikely!
