Stop for a breakfast break and what a great surprise. Great service, awesome selection of food and one of the best coffees i've had in the S.I. Food selection had plenty of the normal plus some great healthy alternative including chai puddings.

We thought this was of the best cafes we have been to in a while. We had the cod, a kombucha (was of the best I've ever had) & a raw slice which was also fantastic. Would highly recommend it.

I have been here several times with friends. and I always have something different and really enjoy the meal. It is well presented and nicely cooked. It's not too noisy so you can hear everyone at the table

Coffee was so good we went back for a late lunch! Cauliflower and blue cheese soup was excellent. Restaurant was nice and warm on a cold day, with choice of table sizes and comfy seats. Good choice on menu as well as from display cabinet. Would recommend

We have been here a few times with a large family group (12+ people) and it is always a pleasure to dine here. The staff are friendly, efficient and helpful. Having several young children in our group is never a problem - we are all made to feel welcome! The meals are delicious, including some good vegetarian options.

Visited for lunch on a very cold Southland day. It was busy so there was a bit of a wait for a table but the service was friendly and the food was good. A nice way to spend a few hours.

Had a burger which was the special of the day. Was very average was just schnitzel chicken. Took ages to arrive drinks didn't come out until meals arrives was very average coffee was like warm milk. Staff kept trying to take out plates before we had finished which was very strange let alone sign of bad service. Wouldn't visit again

But if you had time to sit outside and enjoy the sun with a glass of wine, this is... More
