Best in Picton for food, coffee & service

Located in main street. Excellent food including vegetarian and gluten free. Great coffee with outdoor seating. Good fast service and tables cleaned quickly. Busy most of the day but more so when ferry due to depart or arrive!

The food is excellent, service is great. We had the smoked salmon and scrambled egg bagel for brunch and it was very tasty.

I have been here recently on two different occasions, the first was for brunch and we had a lovely ommellete and french toast. The coffee is great and the staff very attentive and helpful. The second occasion was for lunch and I had the yummiest steak sandwich, good sized piece of steak and plenty of salad with a lovely relish.... More

I love Gustos! Early morning coffee or breakfast on the run. Delicious snack or lunch. Everything I have tried has been fantastic with the friendly helpful staff to match. Wish they were open dinner.

Stopped here to kill some time before ferry and get a bite to eat. Although it is slightly pricey ($12 for pie and salad, $7 for pie alone) it was very tasty and the pie was yum. What other people seemed to be getting looked good too.

We had morning tea here today and it was delicious. The coffee is rich and strong and really hot. A lovely selection of home made goodies which we will go back for. This place has a nice local feel to it and friendly service but really it's all about the coffee and it's a winner! The breakfasts that we saw... More

Picton cafes are a bit hit and miss. Gusto is a hit. Good coffee. Tasty food. Friendly service. Thai chicken pie is really good as was the lamb pita. The best cafe stop in Picton for sure!

Four of us had breakfast here before a long drive. Greeted like we were their first ever customers. Lovely people who backed up their smiles and laughter with great coffee and fantastic breakfasts. Stop in and enjoy, reasonably priced also.

Bacon and eggs, with coffee. Simple and fast. Scrambled eggs and bacon, with Mocha. Simple and fast. Four staff attended the counter whilst we were there and all four were very friendly. They work well together, lots of laughing and more importantly, good food. Tables were cleared quickly. Will visit again some time.
