Lunch amongst the roses

There's a rose garden with tables and chairs to sit underneath the trees. Nice to see the choice of sandwiches in the cold cabinet food. Coffee is good.

The guy barista is very cheeky (good cheeky) and the coffee here was the best I tasted in New Zealand. The food selection looked decent too. The second time I came back the barista recognised me and had a little chat which I thought was nice.

Food standards remain at the same level they've been for the last few years, above average but not spectatcular. Service is a little bit lacklustre, staff are friendly, but not overly energised.

Great place to eat after a day at the snow. Love the open fire! The home made soups were warming and wholesome.

We stopped at your cafe on Saturday morning after having travelled across the Desert Road where it was only 2 degrees. What a welcome - the fire had just been lit, the coffee machine ready to go and the most amazing cheese scones waiting to tempt us. Don't change the recipe - we will be back. Mike and Lynn
