“Lovely surprise”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Travelling from Queenstown to Wanaka over the Crown road, we came upon a lovely French rustic cafe - perfect for a quick lunch stop! My travelling companions are Indonesian and love spicy food - to their great credit, the staff did their best to adapt the dishes for a spicier palate. The building and setting is lovely, as is the little shop attached. Recommended.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

best coffee in town, warm welcome - we were there right on opening for breakfast. Fire was inviting, as was aroma from kitchen. Staff superb - felt like friends.

We went for a simple breakfast of coffee and bagels - both spot on, and served with generous quantity of cream cheese and jam.

We'll be there again.

“Nice spot for coffee”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Had coffee here with a friend and my baby. It is well set up to cater to children (toy box, highchair that attaches to table, outdoor sandpit) without being all about kids. The food store area is amazing - so many interesting products to buy (my favourite is the rainbow pasta). I'm keen to come back for lunch!
