After arriving in Napier for an Indoor Bowling competition our group found this at the weekend and found this to be an excellent Cafe, if not the best in Napier. The food was excellent as was the coffee and the service was Top Notch and all the food was very reasonably priced.
We will be back and will recommend this Cafe to others.

Above all it was very relaxing :-)

Best coffee in the Bay by far! Kevin and Gwen were very welcoming and in the great setting it is too, with Clive Square over the road. This is one of Napier’s hidden gems and should not be missed. Plus my parents visiting from the UK also fell in love with it making it there favourite Cafe in NZ!!! Long may it reign, and serve the meanest Latte ever! Thanks.

Clive Square Cafe is great. The outlook over the square is beautifull, lovely and peacefull with the sounds of bells every hour. The coffe is excellent and the food simple using excellent fresh local product. Great friendly staff who take time out to ask you how your days going and talk about the beautiful Hawkes Bay. You couldn't ask very anything better.
