Friendly helpful service. Travelling thru & had best coffee in area by a lovely little lady (& we are fussy about our coffees). Food was very nice with a very good selection - healthy, & some yummy tempting treats too.

Best cafe on the South Island by far.
Huge selection of sweet and savoury items and I had the lemon & ginger tea, beautiful and friends said the coffee was great.
If near by do yourself a favour and drop in, you won’t be disappointed.

A popular café as they offer a huge selection of really tasty food plus some great coffee. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Situated in the centre of town so very handy plus has access from the rear where there is a large carpark. Also access from the next door pharmacy makes it handy to grab a coffee while waiting for your prescription.

Even though we often stay or pass through Oamaru, we had never heard of this cafe. It was only by chance we found it. What lovely coffee, the shared slice and the delightful Colombian woman we spoke to. We will be back.
