Great restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Deliciously food and friendly service. Mid range pricing. Lovely atmosphere/decor and the garden will be perfect on a summer evening
Thanks Federal!

We've tried to drop in without a booking in the busy tourist season and not been able to get a seat. Not a problem in the quieter shoulder season. Fast and friendly service and pleasingly flavoursome.

This restaurant is hidden away- not put on the street but a bit further in. There is lots of outdoor seating with a view of the mountains and unfortunately a building site right next door. The service was a bit slow but the waiters were happy to help. There are a few vegan options available, but they are very good. I recommend the Vegan Toastie and the Roast It salad. The food was delicious and full of flavour. This is a great place to go to for a relaxed lunch.

Loved this place. Fabulous for vegans. Super tasty, not touristy and great views from the back verandah. Has a deli and a diner. Killls me to write this review as it means that they are going to get busier and it wasn't crazy when we were there. LOVED IT!

Up a little boardwalk alley and you find this cafe. Great theme, really good atmosphere tho slightly impacted at the moment due to building work out front, excellent coffee and terrific Cheese Scones, Not sure what it is that New Zealand does to scones but thank goodness they do. Scrumcious
