We had lunch here and as it was a cold day, ordered the chowder. I think it was certainly the best I have tasted. Big praise..pleasant staff too.

Lovely location. A delight to sit outside and enjoy a coffee and muffin. Both delicious. Liked it so much we went three times in two days.

In a lovely setting on the main street of Akaroa, especially outdoors in Summer watching the world go by. Very obliging, friendly staff and the best BLT (Bacon/lettuce/tomato) sandwich I've ever had. Absolutely delicious. My friend had the same with avocado added and found that tasty as well. Lovely spot to hang out!

Family coffee on a wet day. Had very average beverages served by a disinterested and loud staff member. Hated the wild west connections i.e the tatty John Wayne pictures and a burger named after him....lacks an identity and was 'fuggy' and characterless. Would really not wish to do that again!

Only stopped for a morning coffee which was quite average and probably the worst coffee I've had in NZ. Service was good and didn't eat but perhaps some barista training is needed.

Hi GlutenFreeTravellers, Thanks for the feedback, we appreciate all positive and negative. We pride ourselves on an excellent coffee and are dismayed that our own standards were not met in your instance. It appears that a new member of staff whilst trying to be helpful made your coffee. They have been made aware of the high value we place on... More
