This bakery was recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed! We made a quick stop on route to the glaciers and purchased a variety of pastries and pasties for a picnic lunch. Cute shop, lovely lady behind the counter and a great selection of baked goods. Going back tomorrow!

The cakes in this little bakery are 'to die for', especially the doughnuts! The smell of baking as you walk in the shop is fabulous. The choice of cakes and pasties makes decision on what to buy difficult, everything looks so appetising! I had a lovely vegetable pasty for lunch and took a selection of cakes out, the prices were...

This little cafe looks enticing, but unfortunately we did not have a good experience. Partly this was due to the young girl who was serving us, who was rather rude in manner (not a Kiwi). It's rough n ready fare - sausage rolls and pasties and the like, which was fine by us, but they were rather doughy and lukewarm.... More

Stopped off here to get a coffee before driving to Fox Glacier. Couldn't resist the sausage rolls and the cakes looked amazing. Not badly priced and a good size portion. Worth a visit.
