Warm place to get great food and coffee Had a great tasting mocha and mince and cheese pie. Friendly staff. Clean toilets. We had stopped at Kaikoura for food and coffee but it was so poor we stopped here and it was much better.

Nice cafe, very clean toilets, fabulous scones and food overall looked really good. Counter staff were not friendly at all, even to the point of sarcasm to the customer in front of me, then both sniggering at their comment. Wasn’t impressed at all and very...More
