Coffee was pretty good, but the lady that served us yelled a question to the kitchen staff quite loudly making me feel quite embarrassed, the whole place could hear what I was asking.

Quite a busy cafe in Gore with plenty of seating (indoor and outdoor) and a large variety yummy food. Coffee is constantly great and the staff are always warm and inviting. I had the Salmon Eggs Benedict and it was yummy. Great place to stop by in Gore.

Busy cafe, called in for lunch. Warm and welcoming staff. Good choice of light bites and main meals. We both chose soup. I had the seafood chowder, my wife the tomato. Both came with small toasts, my chowder contained plenty of fish and shellfish. Excellent.

We often have a late breakfast here and it is good and reasonable We have been going there through two owners while in Gore for fishing. Always quality food and excellent service. It's also a relaxing place for a coffee. I love their savories..the best in NZ..
