Although the restaurant can be a bit crowded and you may have to wait to get through the line to order your food, it is worth the wait. We had a delicious lunch one day and went back for coffee and a sweet another day.

Efficient friendly service with great views of the bay and good value for money meals. Great if you want to have lunch overlooking the bay in Picton. Food quality and selection were good and fairly priced. Watch out for the parking inspector though. We witnessed 2 confrontations over disputed parking infringement notices handed out in the main street that were... More

Nice place. Beautiful View of Picton. We ordered Ice coffee and bowl of chips. Nice flavour but should be better. Average. Good and well trained staff.

This is the best place to stop and eat especially after getting off the Interislander, you can sit outside and watch the world go by. The menu and cabinet food is amazing and served by happy helpful staff. Cant wait to return.

Called for a late breakfast. The service was slow, we had to request more butter, and our poached eggs were a bit like ice hockey pucks. On the positive side, the view is great. On my report card it rates a "Could do better".

Called in here for breakfast, I had poached eggs on toast and by husband the American pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. Both were delicious!

The café is across the street from the harbour and had inside and outside tables. They have scones, muffins, sandwiches, great coffee and vegetarian and gluten free foods. They have postcards which we wrote up while enjoying the coffee. The music was quiet and mid 70s. There is also a full bar. Great place to relax.

Me and my partner went here for lunch before heading back to Wellington on ferry. We had the mussels and salmon salad! Both very good!! And had some lovely local wine to go with it. Only thing that I would recommend is table service. But other than that, great!

Went straight from the ferry to this cafe that has the most amazing views and really good food was the added bonus. Eggs benny with gluten free bread, salmon salad and chicken and Brie panini were all delicious and there was a great range to choose from . Friendly and quick service. Coffee was good.

Thank Lesley H
