We grabbed a quick lunch here on our way through from Clyde on the start of one of the trail rides. Delicious food and a welcome break from the rain. Good coffee and baked items.

Lovely little spot in Alex, sitting outside looking over the park opposite, amazing food, even the simple toast and jam I had was so well done with super tasty toast. My mum had the salmon bagel which wasn't traditional but amazing! 10/10 would eat again!

Very cute little cafe. Had the New York bagel with cream cheese, bacon, and tomatoes. The bacon was freshly cooked, the bagel toasted to perfection, and the vinegar under it all really made it special. Really enjoyed my lunch there. Did not have any coffee but I heard its very good.

I arrived at the Tin Goose approx 10.15am and thought this would be a busy time of day. However, there were only a few other people there. I was with a friend and we ordered coffee and a snack. The food and drinks were good. However, the table we went to inside the cafe had dirty dishes on it and... More

Have tried three places in Alexandra for coffee over the last 24 hours. Take away and a large serve. Coffee beans are from Allpress. Good brew, medium strength, good temp and very happy to go back.

On a he Main Street of Alexandra. Always enjoy our coffee at this cafe. Food is good. Lots of variety. There is a cosy nest upstairs for a pirivate, comfy cafe experience. You can also sit outside under some nice shady trees on a hot day.
