I woke up verrrry late, and popped by Lago this afternoon at 3pm. They have all day breakfast! So I got an eggs Benedict and my spouse had a seafood gumbo. The food was tasty, well-seasoned and seafood was very fresh. We had a good time.

Stopped here en route to Queenstown. BIG mistake. Totally incompetent staff, and absolutely uninterested in providing any service. In fact one of them (sadly English) was just rude. She just stood next to the till when we clearly needed some help - some of the food on display had nothing to say what it was. Eventually I asked her if she was working. "Yes, I'm waiting to take your order". Absolutely unbelievable. Then she strolled over, told us they were all labelled (they clearly weren't) and walked back to the till. To cut a long story short, we finally ordered and they got pretty much all of it wrong, even insisting we had already been given one of the items, and must have forgotten! When the manager (owner?) appeared he couldn't have cared less.

One to avoid.

Had the mixed grill twice while we were here ... its very filling, tasty and well worth the price. We have had nothing but great service, great coffees and great atmospheres every time we have been in

We were not even acknowledged when we walked in the door and we were the only customers in the place! Amazing what a "good morning" or "hello" can do to your day. The food and coffee was great and very tasty though.

It was raining and cold when we went it. We got ignored when we went to the counter. The waiters were generally preoccupied. I got up to close the door and less than 20secs later, the waiter got up and said, "it's too hot in here" and proceeded to close the door. The aioli was pungent. The burger of the day was a BLT which was tasty but overpriced. The bowl of coffee came without a teaspoon. The steak sandwich had no top and lacked flavour. Overall not great.
