Hard to find a cafe in Renwick, ok looks like there is only one and easy to miss as looks like a concrete block house. Feels a bit 70's but fortunately food and coffee were good and it does have a good outdoor patio area. Service was great, so a different experience to last reviewer. Would give another go.

I would not recommend this cafe. Dropped in for a coffee on my way north to be met by a very rude and unhelpful staff member. I tried to order a coffee but the staff member remained consistently rude. The food was reasonable but the rudeness made visiting the Three Bears Cafe a very unpleasant experience and I will not...

We were passing through and stopped off for a bite to eat and coffee. There was a good choice of food. We chose a salmon quiche made with filo pastry. They were amazing - light but very tasty. A friend had a homemade sausage roll and he was very happy with that. We ate outside under an umbrella and on... More

We stopped there on our way from Kaikoura to Nelson and had a delicious coffee in the funky looking garden. The barista was lovely and it is worth it to take a break there, as the menu also looked quite good... Lookout for the cute apple design on your latte :-)

We stopped by at 3 Bears Cafe for a break on the long drive from Abel Tasman to Kaikoura as they happened to be next to petro ststion we needed. Who will expect comfy food from random cafe on the road? My husband had bacon and egg on bread and I had pancakes. These are probably regular brunch menu, but... More

NZ country roadside cafes have improved out of sight in the last 20 years and this one has good coffee, a nice selection of breakfast options and friendly service. My big breakfast was very enjoyable and my wife's egg benedict was good but with too much sauce. No complaints really though, its a very pleasant place with good food and... More
