Often too busy with staff struggling but if you go when it’s quiet then it’s a nice place . The new menu looks interesting too and the ambience is really rustic and pleasant.

We found Punnet cafe by chance, having looked for a place to chat offsite from Hamilton airport. The ambience is great and the selection of cakes and pastries on display (at 3pm) is exceptional and rivals anything seen in Europe.

So good went back twice more. Friendly and efficient service. The cabinet selection was good with the food well prepared and tasted good. The environment was friendly and cheerful reflecting that all were enjoying themselves

We always enjoy coming to Punnet and service is fast and efficient despite them always being busy. I ordered creamy mushrooms from the menu with kale chips. When I received the plate the mushrooms looked very pale and there was something else mixed in with it. Looked like feta but tasted kind of sweet. No sign of kale chips. As I am not a great fan of these I was not bothered. However I found out that the mushrooms were mixed with cashew nuts which had been soaked in water to soften them. Supposedly to add texture. I found them rather unpleasant and would have liked more mushrooms. Perhaps it should be added to the menu. What if you have a nut allergy?

The place itself is rustic, awesome layout and has its own little shop available where you can buy little nick nacks.
The vegan food for breakfast is super good! I had the big breakfast and honestly BEST tofu scramble EVER! Highly recommended. Service is really friendly. I suggest booking prior to going there. Luckily they were able to seat us without a booking - got lucky!
