The kitchen was closed by the time we arrived just after 2 pm so we had to choose food from the cold cabinet. We both had a toasted ham cheese and basil pesto sandwich and we could still order a bowl of chips which we...More

I don’t know why the reviews for this place are so good. We had breakfast there and the food was average. The coffee was bitter and the cafe itself is nothing special. I regretted going there.

Description
A big city cafe in a "little" town. Great coffee, fantastic local craft beers and lovely local wines. Our menu features local and seasonal fare, with options ranging from hot breakfasts to afternoon indulgences, a wide variety of cooked and pre-prepared lunches from our cabinet, as well as gluten-free and vegetarian treats. We can even make you up anything from our cabinets or menu as a picnic to go! We're open seven days a week from 7.00am until 4.00pm. We serve the bustling breakfast, lunch and coffee trade, and the cafe is a well-utilised space for meetings. We are fully-licensed and also love hosting private functions. Come upstairs for relaxed dining or enjoy the famous Marlborough sun outside.
