The Emporium, on the outskirts of Levin, boasts an adorable gift shop with both new and preloved homewares, jewellery and clothing. Out the back of the shop is where you will find a quaint cafe where you can visit for lunch or afternoon tea.
The whole place has a gentle, relaxing, Frenchy feel about it. It doesn't take much to see that it is the dream of owners Terry and Andrea brought to life.
Before we were seated, we were shown to the cabinet to select our choice of trio set. A nice, personal touch I thought.
Because we booked for three, we were treated to a complimentary glass of sparkling grape juice on arrival, our tea order was taken and it wasn't long before both the tea and food was brought out to the table.
The whole experience was a delight, the food was fresh and delicious. I will definitely be returning.
