My was running the Whale Half Marathon with a friend while I had had the job of adult supervision of two pre-teens. Growing boys need a big breakfast and so do I.

I went for eggs benedict and the boys had to have the waffles. The coffee was great and the meals were too. Very generous portions and well made too.

Lovely courtyard out the back with birdsong too. This place has a real homely feel and the hearty food and warm welcome reflects that.

So good all five of us returned for breakfast before heading home on the open road, tummies full.

Visited a few days ago with 2 other friends and ordered an American hotdog with a milkshake. Friends food came before the hot chocolates. Amazing service and very well priced. Well done

We were a group of six, including children, up for the day from Christchurch.

it was a cold day and we were looking for somewhere to have lunch that was sheltered as we had the dog with us. There was nowhere with a sheltered spot that we could see however "Why Not" had a courtyard. we were able to quickly carry the dog through and were very comfortably accommodated.
The menu was varied and offered multiple choices for both adults and children.

The meals we had ranged from Chicken Nuggets, Nacho's, Steamed Mussels to Waffles. There was also a very good range of cabinet food.

Everything was delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

I would highly recommend Why Not" to visitors for a great value meal.
