we had the broccoli salad $5 and the stuffed potato $7 which were both very tasty and filling enough for lunch. I asked for a Moccha extra hot which arrived as such and my friend had tea which was served with a tea pot and a beautiful flowery china cup and saucer. The views are great from upstairs, there is...

very creative food at fair prices. We had a roasted vegetable salad, broccoli curry salad and quiche. All extremely fresh and good. They had a steady stream of locals for lunch.

This café is very handy to motels near Blenheim City. We had a lovely bacon, cheese and pineapple toasty and much needed "recovery" coffee which was one of the best. The service was friendly and prompt even though it was very busy.

I often have coffee at Watery Mouth Cafe. The staff are always friendly, welcoming and very obliging. Great if you are looking for a quick coffee that is really tasy while on the go. Food is awesome as well.

I noticed that this place was pretty busy when passing at Sunday brunch time. Visited on a Monday. Helpful & friendly service - good food selection & free wifi Loved the complimentary sweet coconut chocolate square served with coffee. Toasted sandwich was excellent. The cheese vegetable stack suffered from being over microwaved but still good. Recommended.

This coffee shop was only a short walk from our hotel. Coffee was awesome and the staff were excellent. We went here a couple of times over our 3 day stay in Blenheim. If you want a great coffee and meal this the place to go.
