Lovely wee cafe with lovely friendly staff who smiled and chatted to us while we waited. It is a typical little kiwi cafe with a lovely selection of foods to choose from. Would go there again anytime.

Wow - what a contrast. The previous visit was very good but now the place is buzzing with a new menu and happy faces. Our order was processed quickly and what a treat to get - most excellent food and service.

Called in on our way to Invercargill. Parking was easy and plentiful. Clean and bright, friendly staff. Ordered the blue cod, very nice and an eggs bene the same. Nice tea selection. Not a lot of personality or atmosphere but fine for food.

Glad we stopped here again. New food selection available. Tried the Chicken and Bacon Panini and wow - just glorious. They make the best Panini's I've ever tasted. Well done them.
