The Stables was the only place we found serving lunch mid-afternoon during the off-season (May). Café located on the main street in Akaroa, with indoor and outdoor sitting. Good food – try the Roasted Pork Sandwich. Friendly and helpful staff.

One of the rare ones to be opened on a Sunday for breakfast in winter. Food was amazing, ambience was awesome. Only reason not giving a 5 star is the free wifi wasn't working.
