Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Everytime we're in Thames we always get breakfast/brunch here. I like the layout, the food is well presented, the staff friendly and helpful. There's nothing better in summer than to sit out the back under one of the maple trees! They have a lovely area out there with a winding path through pebbles and tables built around the trees. Most pleasant. They also have 'chequers' to play (!). The food is reliably great with some great specials on hand and yummy food on display. The portions are generous and the price isn't too bad.

Very good choice and quality, nice outside eating area at rear of premises. Busy at weekends.
Wide range of cakes and pastries, the full english is great value and sets you up for the day.

This cafe had the normal selection for an NZ breakfast, well prepared. The people I was there with said it had changed in the last year so don't expect the food that it used to serve if you are coming back.
