Head on over between 5pm and 6:30pm and you’ll get three courses for only $29. And yes, that includes dessert. Sold!

Beautifully made barista cuppa and scone and the best ribs you’ll ever have in New Zealand. They’ve also got a fantastic kid’s menu so is a perfect choice for the whole family. Their dessert cabinet is also mouth-watering so we suggest also going in on a Sunday arvo to grab a cuppa and cake.
