  • Stopped for lunch on our way to Palmerston North, were not disappointed, fresh homemade food which was lovely. Cream horn that I haven't eaten in donkey's years brought back childhood memories for me...
  • Of all the places we have been for breakfast this is my favourite so far. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by friendly staff who then took our order which arrived barely a minute after we sat down. The breakfast eggs Benedict was delicious and a large meal and the hot chocolates were great. 5 stars for sure!
  • Wow. What great food. The cream horns are famous but we did not know that when we stopped on our way south. Great atmosphere. Very busy. Worth a visit.
  • Amazing service went above and beyond for my dads fathers day gift! You dont receive this kind of service at many places these days! So it's a big 5 star from me!! Thank you Viv's Kitchen!
  • Good breakfast, the small breakfast is plenty of food. The regular breakfast is huge. The cream horns are very good as well wonderful light pastry.
