Great coffee and a gorgeous wee gallery of local art and photography. Combined with super friendly staff, you can't go wrong. This is a take out spot, though so don't be expecting to linger!

Amazing coffee and service every time I visit. I love how they make their own chocolate sauce for the hot chocolates and mochaccino. Lovely homemade baking and beautiful photography and gifts to choose from too.

Great little gallery and espresso bar. Best flat white I have had on the West Coast :) An extra bonus was the home baked goodies!! The Caramel Oat Slice is heaven, as are the little bliss balls. Whilst waiting for my coffee, there is so much cool stuff to look at! Amazing photos & gift ideas! Recommend anyone visiting Westport... More

Came here 6 months ago, and thought fondly and often of the coffee... Couldn't wait to come back and have some more. A few nice words across the counter, and some interesting pieces on the wall. Will come back again soon.

This coffee shop is way more than just an excellent coffee shot. The variety of gifts and art works is so worth a look. True Kiwi NZ originals. Small and large in size and budget. Worth a trip to see. Westport is not to be missed.

They only have takeaway coffees etc. . Brilliant flat white made perfectly. If you need a good caffeine fix you will not be disappointed.
