They advertised gluten free but didn't even have gluten free bread. I asked for a dairy free option and the meal came with cheese

We enjoyed sitting outside having breakfast. My husband had the pancakes with fresh fruit and yogurt, I had the poached eggs on a muffin and bacon. Both dishes were beautifully presented and you could see they had been freshly prepared and were very good. We will go there again.

By chance we stumbled on this hidden gem on a lunch stop in Kaikoura. I ordered eggs benedict, a favourite of mine which I have eaten all over the world. My wife ordered pancakes with banana. The eggs benedict were perfect, and I mean perfect. Just the right amount of each constituent all perfectly cooked with runny egg yolks and firm whites, perfectly cooked bacon, crisp toasted muffin, not too much hollandaise, and, above all, hot on arrival. My wife's pancakes turned out to be crepes, beautifully cooked and served with a variety of fresh accompaniments, again a perfect selection and balance, to make a visually attractive dish and a wonderful taste experience. I was so impressed by the meal that I asked to speak to the chef, a lovely modest lady, who may have been somewhat taken aback by my enthusiasm. I don't know her name, but she knows who she is and should feel proud of her skills in the kitchen. The coffee here was very good, as it is in many places in New Zealand, and the service was top notch. All in all a totally unassuming cafe which punches well above its weight. Highly recommended.
