“Lovely food, good service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The Allure Cafe and Gallery is a small cafe which sells good food off a menu, great coffee and very good service. You can either sit inside or outside in the sun under an umbrella.
There is also a good selection of art works on sale as well as jewellery and knitwear.

We had a great coffee in Kaikoura. They had a lovely selection of artworks and crafts. Would certainly go back there is we were ever in Kaikoura again.

“We came back a second time”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 via mobile

Stopped in on our way south for breakfast, it was good, although a little light on the hollandaise sauce, the staff were really nice and friendly. We liked it so much on our way back north we stopped in again. This time we remember to ask for extra hollandaise, there were different staff this time, and they were equally friendly, and we had a bit of a laugh about it with them. I'm coming back through again in about a week, and I'll probably make a point of stopping here again. Thanx for the great breakfast allure

“Expensive!”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

We were cold and only slightly peckish so ordered the daily special of coffee and muffin, plus a oj and toasted sandwich. The muffin and coffee were nice, tasty, fresh and an acceptable $6 but I'm sorry to say that the $7 ham and cheese toasted sandwich was very disappointing! For that sort of coin would have expected something more than 2 slices of bread with very little filling!

“Bad for allergies”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

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
