Probably the best coffee in town however it is really only for takeaway trade, very little seating. Small range of food, just about all sweet stuff.

Came expecting decent coffee, got a cup of warm insipid milk beverage that may or may not have had some actual coffee in it - as it's all takeaway, we were back in the car and driving before we realized how bad it was

This is a great little takeaway coffee bar with lovely baking and a must visit gallery. We bought a beautiful picture of a Tui and enjoyed the best coffee in Westport, which certainly lifted our spirits on a wet West coast day.

Popped in for an early morning coffee before we ventured out to the seal colony. What a neat place to pick up a takeaway coffee!!! Really enjoyed browsing around all the art and nifty things while waiting for coffee to be made and of course most important THE COFFEE WAS GREAT

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.

Thank Snoozer1968
