Great name for a cafe that’s housed in an old brick bangalow (cute spelling too) in Birkenhead. These guys used to have Villa in Birkenhead Point and they’re still doing great stuff. The coffee’s worth a drive across town for, and they know how to cook! (is that Mum in the kitchen?). I have a friend who calls in every morning on his way to work for a coffee and a cheese scone – says they’re to die for. Personally, I think the spicy apple bran muffins are divine. Plenty of seating, with a big, covered deck out the front and big tables. Friendly, prompt service-with-a-smile. Located at 96 Mokoia Road, open every day (8-3:30 weekdays, 8-3:00 weekends).
