Lovely friendly staff. We both had eggs benedict, mine with salmon, his with bacon. Salmon was plentiful and delicious, but slightly cold. Hollandaise was fabulous and creamy. Bacon good quality, and pretty nice coffee too. Nice surprise in Cromwell.

We came for breakfast and coffee. The scrambled eggs were well prepared and a generous size. The coffee was good. This is a solid cafe.

Visited with family, really tasty food, some gluten free options and very good, large sized coffee! Great spot for some classic Kiwi tucker, including cheese rolls aka Southland Sushi. Would definitely recommend :)
