Wow what a gem of a place. This contemporary café has it all, great food, great atmosphere, really nice staff and clean toilets. Did I mention the coffee? Great! Arrived early to meet my friend so a chance to relax and check out the menu. An unusual concept was the big tables designed for the big group or many small... More

I hadn't had a very good day when I arrived here yeaterday and the whole place really lifted my mood. It was recommended by a local and wasn't disappointed! I had the big breakfast which was delicious! Especially the chutney (eggs were slightly underdone - but I do like them runny so no bother) service was fantastic and cabinet range... More

Probably the busiest cafes I have ever been in but the quality is always there and they know my name, they know my order and they make it feel like its... More

Went here on Sunday for a coffee (wish I was there for food as well - as it looked great). Were warned that you would probably have to queue up and even though it was busy, the atmosphere and lounge style chairs in the corner were a perfect spot. Low tables, high tables and stools to sharing tables make this... More

After reading the reviews decided to go there in the first afternoon when we arrived invercargill but unfortunately it was closed. So went again next morning and tried the brunch, very delicious. Although it always quite busy with all the office workers near by so it could take a little while for the food to be ready.
