Really a unique establishment with a warm, friendly feel and great food. We had a salmon bagel sandwich that was divine, a chicken fila roll that was outstanding but couldn't be finished because it was so big and we had to save room for a shared giant slice of carrot cake, another hit. The Sandfly had the feel of a... More

Upon arrival in TeAnau we decided to stop here and have a late lunch. The lunch was tasty and the smoothie was good. Staff were friendly and the place was pretty busy which is always a good reflection of the food.

Big selection of sweet and savoury on display. Great coffee and wonderful cakes. Always a queue but service is quick. Used a few times and each time very friendly even when it was only 30mins to closing time. Brought extra cakes to takeaway as they are so good. In and outside seating

I take back everything I said about this town having out dated cafes!. We had lunch at sandfly and found it a funky, fresh, and busy little place. TIP: Do not try and find a cafe on the Main Street - this cafe is on a side street and well worth the detour.

Had breakfast here and wished we had had lunch the day before. Food and service brilliant, Great menu. All our food (6 of us) was exactly what we ordered and served with humor. Highly recommend this cafe.

Expectations were high because we were told it was the best coffee in town. Didn't get to try all the others but this one was a cracker - didn't disappoint! Scrambled eggs were terrific. All round, excellent.

Breakfast was excellent and served within ten minutes of ordering. Really good coffee as well. You can tell by the amount of people streaming in for take away.
