A quick coffee/tea stop on way to Te Anau. A happy place with good service. Sausages looked good but I only had tea.

Called in en-route from Dunedin toTe Anau. Surprised to see it open in a town of closed shops on a Sunday. The place was fairly full of locals so it looked like we had made the right venue. We ordered coffee which came in large mugs (beats the little ones that appear the norm in New Zealand) I had a... More

Ate here on a rainy Sunday morning while passing through. Not spectacular, but hearty fare. Some locals in their Sunday best, some casual, and some other tourists. The place was packed and obviously popular. Had the mutton pie with gravy.

Friendly staff and great homecooked style food. Curried sausages were tasty as was the coffee. Great place to take the kids for lunch.

This is a great place for breakfast if you don't want the usual fast food fare. Some of us who start work really early see the hard-working staff at The Capri at it before dawn. It's also a great place to take the olds for afternoon tea. They just go all day!

This must be Gore's best kept secret! You won't believe the brilliant selection of food to suit all tastes. You begin salivating just looking at the incredible choice! No wonder on what I thought was a slow Sunday lunch - the place was full of happy dinners. Very friendly staff meant to waiting. Prompt, happy service. Treats galore here.

All we wanted was cheese rolls for breakfast and we were not disappointed, they were hot and tasty. The coffee was really good also.

We called here for lunch as the normal café we go to in Gore was busy. Place was reasonably tidy, with a steady flow of customers going through. We placed our order, bacon, eggs & hash browns for me, seafood chowder for partner. The chowder was served (thick as mashed potatoes) with very little seafood in it and tasteless. When... More

The place was busy, on a Sunday afternoon. My steak pie was fine. Good chips. Some tables not cleared, but no worries. I'd eat there again.
