Popped in with moko for coffee and hot chocolate. Excellent range of snacks to have with coffee. Haven't tried their meals yet. Service was excellent, place was humming but not too noisy and staff were doing a great job finding seats for patrons. Coffee was excellent and their brioche was divine. Will come and visit again. Great place, recommend.

Nothing for young children to eat, fluffy was scalding hot. My filo wrap had odd nuts in it that weren't on the list (I'm not allergic but don't enjoy them). It seems popular but I've had far better meals in a more comfortable setting. Won't be going back.

Stopped in on a short visit to Invercargill and glad we did. Friendly service, yummy muffins, great coffee and buzzing atmosphere. Wish we had more time to try the lunch options which looked delicious. Excellent cafe in every way.

Everything about this place is top notch and this is maintained no matter the time of day you visit or the day of the week. I make sure to visit this place every time I come to Southland and would drive out of my way to do so - a must if you're in the lower South!

We went there and waited for sometime to have our cooked meal given to us. The food was ok. Coffee was ok. Tried it because people I know recommended it to me. It was an ok place but it's not something I would rave about. I guess the location is good because it's in town and that's it really. Place... More

Went here for lunch on a busy Saturday afternoon. Atmosphere is nice. Tried the John Dory Buttie - beautiful! It was the freshest piece of fish I've ever had. Staff were friendly. Not exactly on the main street but still good for the occasional people-watch. Coffee was great. I left going here until my last day and wish I hadn't,... More

This cafe would be the cafe to go to if it was in Auckland! The cheese and bacon scone was the best ever. Tea was very good. The muffin was yummy. I would go there every day if lived there
