This place is the best in Invercargill. Great food and service. Wish it was in my home town, I'd be there daily.

Staff still have time to give great service in this very busy cafe. Fast service, excellent food from extensive menu. Take away cous cous salad was yummy for dinner too. Best coffee in Invercargill. Good access for disabled. Sone outdoor seating. Only downside...there is not much nearby parking during business hours...a bummer when its freezing and raining.

A TA recommendation that really worked for us. This place might not be the cheapest place to eat, but we had a very very enjoyable breakfast and great coffee in their busy cafe. Just wish we lived a little closer so we could go there again !

First morning in Invercargill looking to breakfast. Parking a nightmare. Marked on town map so decided to try and find it. Location not where you expect such a good cafe. Locals must know about it because it was quite busy. Both had eggs Benedict, delicious. Service prompt staff very pleasant.

We followed a previous post on tripadvisor and found this cafe on a Saturday morning. The location was surprising- on the edge of the business district of town and underneath an office block. We had a job to find a table. We sat outside in the sun and watched car loads of locals draw up and enjoy family or time... More

We stopped here and had a scone (amazing) and a creamy chicken melt sandwich. Both were delicious and reasonably priced.
