Fresh well cooked food- wide variety of specials on offer and would highly recommend the sea food! Good variety of wine on offer - reasonable prices around 30 dollars for a main.

Great coffee and the ginger, allspice and hazelnut biscuits were delicious. Really enjoyed sitting outside and soaking up the view and people watching. Friendly staff and quick service too. A lot of smokers outside made the fresh air a bit unpleasant.

I begrudge paying $9 for 3 slices of store bought bread. Had it been nice artisan bread I could understand but this was just regular bread.

Went to this little bohemian cafe/restaurant twice. Once in February 2014 and once in June 2014. On both occasions I had some of the nicest filets of fish one can dream of tasting. Buttery, garlicky, gingery, lemony, my God what great combinations of flavours. Absolutely recommend it to anyone who appreciates a nice fresh well cooked fillet of local fish.

We stopped in quickly for a coffee while on a lazy day trip in Picton last weekend, and were stoked to be served up with one of the best coffees in Marlborough. The sweet treats in the cabinet all looked delicious, and we shared a piece of carrot cake which was excellent. Would love to go back for dinner some... More

I've been here before, which is why I came here again. The staff are friendly and the service is great. I had the big breakfast and a cup of green tea while waiting to check in on the ferry. My only complaint is that the potato slices were hard in the middle. Maybe they are meant to be like this,... More

After an afternoon of wine tasting with my friend and before a long night of driving, we curled up to this cozy cafe recommended by our wine tour guide. We watched the sunset over the water, sipped coffee and had a lovely meal! My friend had never had abalone before so I ordered the special for her to try. It... More

We stopped in here early in the morning before heading out for a kayak trip around the sounds. I think we got lucky because as we walked in the door a fresh batch of banana and chocolate chip muffins had just come out of the oven. They were incredibly tasty and filled us up for the entirety of our four... More
