A taste of…

Cadil­lac Cafe, 35 Tu­rangi Town Cen­tre, Tu­rangi. Open 8.30am to 3pm, seven days.

Play­ing Gi­ant Jenga and board games were the best ac­com­pa­ni­ment to sand­wiches and cof­fee at this 1950s Amer­ica themed cafe.

Chicken burger with chips ($14), Hot Chicken Sand­wich ($8.90). Vege burger with chips ($14).

The chicken burger was suc­cu­lent and served hot. An abun­dance of cran­berry sauce and Camem­bert cheese flavours, which suited the chicken. The meal didn’t skimp on any­thing and I couldn’t fin­ish all the chips.

Amaz­ing value for the chicken sand­wich: crumbed chicken schnitzel on multi-grain bread with tomato, let­tuce, and mayo.

The vege burger was fresh and tasty, with a nice crispy bun.

With three peo­ple well-fed for $37, it’s an ex­cep­tion­ally good value.

Plenty of unique choices at the Cadil­lac Cafe, given its theme.

These in­clude Veni­son pie, Sticky Pork Ribs, Pou­tine chips, Beef Na­chos, Amer­i­can Hot­dog, Chip Butty, Mac­a­roni and Cheese, Crispy Ba­con Salad, Hot ba­con sand­wich, Toasted Sand­wiches, Ki­wiana burger, Pulled pork burger, Steak burger.

Cof­fee, milk­shakes Frappes are all avail­able.

Spe­cial­ity smoothie com­bi­na­tions in­clude peanut but­ter and ba­nana, blue­berry and oats, and spir­ulina. and

Staff were dressed in keep­ing with the 1950s Amer­ica theme, with bright dresses and styled hair. Friendly and pro­fes­sional ser­vice.

You can tell they’re happy to be at the Cadil­lac Cafe and liv­ing its vibe. The vibe .... Fun, lively and there’s plenty to look at. Play Con­nect 4, Gi­ant Jenga, Snakes and Lad­ders, and cards. If you go… When you have time to relax and en­joy the vibe. Don’t rush it. Take friends, fam­ily or chil­dren. Rat­ing out of 5: Four stars. Great fun and food, but lim­ited op­tions for veg­e­tar­i­ans cost the Cadil­lac Cafe a star.
