This café is off the main street, so you might miss it. We were glad we found it - food was good, staff were good and friendly - interior is rustic - only issue was people forgetting to close the entrance door when coming or going, since it was windy/cool.

I had an open chicken sandwich and hot chocolate. The sandwich was made with some sort of pressed chicken with colourful mayonaise dribbled all over. The salad was ok but the rest was very disappointing. The hot chocolate was excellent and the service was friendly. I had been recommended to go here as I travel through Murchison fairly often but I would be reluctant to return. It was not value for money ($18.00).

We usually eat everything but even the fries were cold and hard. The pies looked ok and wish we had one instead. All a bit grubby and not as cool as it used to be.

We always top here on our way to or from Nelson. Great atmosphere, wonderful food and service. The long black coffee is superb as is the food.

The staff in this place are wonderful and they cook a truly delicious steak. I thought about it for days afterwards. Lovely wine list, good beers, nice cakes and good coffee, plus a decent kids' menu.
