Lovely food in a busy Cafe. Thought it a bit on the pricey side though. Clean. Great service . Mostly cabinet food although there is a small basic menu to order from too

This cafe is simply the BEST in Invercargill City Centre. Absolutely fabulous food and coffee. All goodies baked on site and mostly their own creation... and of course 'cheese rolls'...!!! mmmmmmmmm. Toilets and FREE parking at rear.

Dear Anne-Marie K, We were sorry to hear that your recent experience was less than perfect. As you rightly noticed the cafe was extremely busy and sadly we missed the mark on efficient customer service. We hope you would accept our apology.

Had lunch here while post Christmas shopping as most of the usual favourites were closed. Had the spanakopita which was fine and my daughter had a filo which she said was dry and didn't come with any relish. Coffee was OK but this place could do with a makeover and some new furniture to make it more inviting.

Going back to a great Cafe like this one needs worthy mention, as it continues to provide great food and service. I even broke my rule and tried the local cheese roll, mmmmmmmmm. A delightfully fresh made sandwich and a yummy custard square, so large it had to be dissected to fit any mouth. mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Had breakfast here one morning. My breakfast order was quite simple, 4 poached eggs, they were good without being spectacular, but the coffee was excellent. From the sign I believe it was Ethiopian Sidamo, but I understand it changes quite regularly. After 3 double espressos I was bouncing off the walls and ready for another day :)

Hot chocolates were great and lemon slice tasty. Sadly jaffa milkshake undrnkable . Chocolate brownie very bland. It may have been because it was weekend but would not come again.
