“Good food with a river view.”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 via mobile

We had an excellent afternoon at the cafe. My wife had the mushroom and bacon soup, and I had the chicken ceasar salad, both of which were excellent. Only a modest wine selection, but those that were offered were quite good. The coffee selections were also well prepared. No dessert this time, but the overall ambience and service demands a return tr

“Very pleasant breakfast even on rainy Sunday”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Opens early on weekend for breakfast. Went when it was pouring rain but still great spot watching the fast flowing Avon river and the ducks battling the tide whilst enjoy good coffee and breakfast. Nice omelette. Friendly staff.

“Great location and nice food”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Arrived yesterday at 2.30 after the lunch rush hungry, to be told the kitchen was closed. (after spending much longer at the museum than we had intended - not a complaint btw ).
This lot must remember kiwihost, as they reopened the kitchen for us and we went away happy and they got even more goodwill.
