Unfriendly, rude staff. Not welcoming at all. Average coffee and watery, tasteless milkshake. Will not stop next time.

Stopped off here for lunch on way from Dunedin to Wanaka. We were rewarded with an outdoor table in the sun - Alexander is a very warm spot in the summer but still surrounded by mountains. Lots of options for lunch from salads, to focaccia and more. Opted for a salad and a grilled veggie focaccia and both were large and tasty. Coffee was great too.

Popped in for a coffee and stayed for 2. Good service, really helpful when we needed to heat up milk for the little one. Cakes were very tempting!

We stopped in at the Tin Goose Cromwell for brunch on our way home from a short break in Queenstown. The cafe was busy on the morning we arrived but we were warmly welcomed in by the lady serving behind the counter. The selection of food in the display cabinet looked stunning and I settled on a chicken frittata type dish with salad while my wife enjoyed a caramel slice and coffee .Food arrived very quickly and I was very happy with my choice , moist and tasty with ample fillings of chicken , potato, vegetables and cheese. Wife's coffee was pronounced superb as was the slice. We sat outside and enjoyed the sun and relaxed in the slightly chilled air of Cromwell , minds set on returning in the summer for their delicious cherries and apricots.

Grab the table in the window and sit on the carpeted box - we did!

Friendly staff, great food, good coffee.

Nothing was too much trouble.

Will visit again!
