We stopped into Pukeko Junction on our way to Hanmer. The Seafood Chowder was the perfect lunch on a chilly day. We returned on our way back through a few days later for a sweet treat. The Brownie was to die for!! Great service, and an even greater selection of delicious food. We will be back!

Called in today for morning tea or rather, morning coffee. I had the sausage roll and managed to smother myself in pastry flakes and was told off by she who must be obeyed, who had the the scone. Great to see folk actually producing the food they sell. Shows commitment. Thanks will call again and again!

Consistently great food and coffee, new sweets are a big hit, our current favourite is the Sticky Date loaf warmed with caramel icing! Perfect with a great flat white!

Made a special trip from Christchurch for lunch. We were able to make a reservation on ANZAC day and there was no surcharge . The bacon and egg pie with salad was impressive along with the salad great coffee and great service. I will always go back

Always wanted to stop off here. On the busy State Highway 1. The cabinet of food looked impressive with savoury offerings. I ordered two drinks - which came out prior to my meal and were all gone before the meal arrived. I ordered the fish cake and had a salad to go with it. The fish cake in itself was... More
