Not very friendly staff. The food also was very underwhelming with few options. I was rather disappointed in general with the whole experience and haven't been back.

Heading south to Invercargill or up the island a sensible place to stop if you require some food and beverage. For More locals too. A good selection of sandwiches, pies, muffins and other baked goods. Nice coffee. Courteous staff. Good value.
