On our way back from Manipouri to Queenstown, needed a break and found the Trout Cafe. They offered good real coffee, take away foods and a range of meals made to order. The toilets were clean and the staff friendly and very helpful.

We had a platter for two and it was huge. Great value and good service. A shame smoking is allowed on the balcony.
