It’s a lovely looking café, bright, great views, great location on the main street. The atmosphere in the café was nice, lots of space and clean. There was a nice hum to the place. They offer counter food, and a hot food menu. Standard café fare. And a selection of hot and cold drinks as you’d expect. The service at... More

I have enjoyed everything from a coffee and muffin to a full meal. It doesn't matter what the weather is - lovely summer day to cold, wet and windy there is a great view of the harbor and beyond to enjoy inside or out in the fresh air. The quantity is 'just right' and the service friendly and prompt. (:

This busy cafe has a prime position overlooking the harbour at Picton. Great place to watch the interislander docking. As I was only in need of a small meal I chose the seafood chowder ($22)which came with toasted ciabatta. My husband opted for the lamb chops with mash & veg($32). A trio of ice cream completed the meal. All food... More

Mixed reviews for this cafe. The location and appearance adds to the charm of Picton giving you the sense of a cafe culture city/town. The counter service was quick and we found a table in the lower section as the top area was very busy. This area was nearly empty but may not suit some as the tables and stools... More

We came here for a quick lunch. The service was good, the food was ok and well priced. The poached eggs were perfectly cooked. The view was amazing.

We came here for lunch. They had all day breakfast menu which I found to be in par with their lunch in term of price. I think I've paid about NZ$18 for big kiwi breakfast. I was disappointed with it. My friend had a better luck with his open sandwich. At least his lunch was cheaper and looked delicious and... More

Arrived and were seated promptly. Water was placed on the table, but no glasses. Only three waitstaff on and our table was neglected. When we ordered our meal we were told it would be a 30 minute wait... We waited over an hour and the vegetables were cold. You couldn't pay me to go back to this resturant, disgraceful!
