Snack break with soup, chips, coffee, tray bakes and water. The soup with the roll was home made and really tasty. The cakes were superb. Nice café.

Geraldine is only about a two hour drive from Christchurch Airport and the Kiwi Country Visitor Centre is a great place to buy all of your last minute gifts. An excellent range without paying airport prices.
