Loved this place for a quiet little drink, feed and beer. Service is friendly, reasonably priced and the place is always packed with customers. Great location right opposite the lake. Hands down the best coffee we had in the South Island. We'll be back next time

Super friendly staff, lovely beer, great food, nice vibe, very chillaxed and friendly punters too. 10/10 for pre mountain feasting, or post-adventure story telling.

Prior to setting off on the 30 minute drive to the slopes at Cardrona, I'd pop in here for a very nice coffee at 07.15 every morning.

This is the spot to be after being on the snow all day. Watch the sunset with a mulled wine or beer. Coffee is great and less crowded early in the mornings. How could you go past a place with a name like this?

This place was very busy but they fit us in for breakfast on a weekday. Very nice breakfast and the coffee was memorable. In a good way!
