I've never visited Ashburton before, but was pleasantly surprised - lovely little town. For me the jewel in the crown is Fracolin's Caffé, near the car parks and next to the vet. They seem to specialise in home-made soups, which are blindingly delicious, served with...More

Still the best coffee house in Ashburton. Coffee made to perfection with care and attention. Excellent menu with my favourite breakfast of scrambled eggs on toast. Well worth a visit.

Fantastic coffee with 3 different origin beans constantly updated and a great house blend. Time and effort is consistently put in to every cup. Chorizo stew was tasty.

We visited for lunch and I had the Sweet Potato curry soup with ciabatta roll. It was spicy and absolutely delicious. Theresa and Mike are very friendly and look after their guests. I would strongly recommend a visit. We will certainly be back.
