I have stopped off several times for breakfast over the years and it always good, as is the coffee. The full breakfast at $19 was what I opted for on my last visit on Xmas Eve 2014. The only downside or improvement\suggestion would be not to have the $2 add-on for two sausages and also add a homemade hash brown.... More

Excellent variety of scrumptious and well presented counter and menu food. My Moccha was just how I like it. Lots of variety of seating in and out and small chairs for kids. Has a log fire for the winter too. Gift shop next door with some lovely stuff. Staff friendly efficient and well presented. Even the bathrooms are worth a... More

I frequent this place often. Service and quality of food always, always amazing. Staff are so friendly even when things are hectic and restaurant is full on busy. We've never had to wait long for our orders. Highly recommend to my family and friends.

Travelling Christchurch to Nelson, we dropped in here to fuel ourselves before continuing north. The four of us had cabinet food that each came with a salad. And what a great salad we got. Very different, but certainly tasty, nourishing and filling. I had the curried kumara filo, another at our table had the stuffed pumpkin, my wife had a... More

Whenever I have travel between Nelson and Christchurch I always make a point of stopping at Pukeko Junction. The food is utterly delicious and the staff are really welcoming and polite. A particularly notable experience really set this place and its staff apart for me. Recently I visited Pukeko Junction with my mother after a trip down to Christchurch and... More

A great place to stop when heading to Hanmer, the West Coast or Kaikoura. The food is great, the service good and you'll feel reinvigorated for your trip north.

We have stopped here three times now on our way to and from Hanmer. The quality and choice of food is top rate, pity about the service. Each time we have been left waiting, for either the coffee or food. Today we had a very nice lunch and asked for our coffee to be served when the slice of cake... More

Probably one of the best cafés I have eaten at! Food was amazing and great value for money. Took us ages to order because there were so many tasty looking options. Recommend getting the salad with your meal, it was divine!! Would loved to have had any one of their delectable looking desserts 😋 but I was so full from... More

This is our favourite place to stop when travelling to or from Christchurch on SH1. A Wonderful place to stop for a SLICE OF LEMON CAKE (with yougurt or cream) and have you tried their LEMON & YOUGURT CAKE? The meals are great, and we have had many late brekkies over the years. There is an our door area for... More

What I really liked is how they came up with such a stunning business in a cheap seriously unattractive venue. But boy does it work. The place is truly about the food not so much the cafe. I always eat lunch there on my way to Hanmer and preorder around $80 worth of food to bring home for sunday evening... More
