This was an odd place. Presented more as a modern, New York style bistro, with big bay windows and views of the river. Decent art hanging on the walls, the clientele seems like a blend of socialites and tourists. They have a huge selection of food (I got a sweet corn muffin with brie on top) that will help quench any hunger you might have. The La Nuova machine was an interesting design and did not provide that great of a drink. They use Revive Espresso and I don’t know if it was the bean or the barista/machine that was bad, but skip this place and go to Rapido.

A really cool spot located in a funky house. I was skeptical when I saw there run of the mill machine, but the owner is the barista and makes a great cup. Using People’s Coffee to make a very delicious drink. Great flavor, strong presentation with a nice rosetta and overall this was a very bright spot on the coffee trip. Not only do they serve up a great drink, they also have baked goods they make there that are also delicious. Ambiance is very promising, but the time I was there, it was just me. I would imagine that this is a bustling shop with lot’s of people utilizing the cool space. If you happen to be in Wanganui this is certainly the best bet!
