A pleasant looking cafe with a good vibe, but I was a little disappointed with the cabinet as lots of the food looked old... I had the bacon and egg pie which looked like a good option because of the size, but when it was brought out it was 2/3 the size of the pieces in the cabinet. All in... More

Cheese rolls are special treat in Central Otago and it's nice to have it with a cuppa and sit and watch as the time flies in the busy road of Centennial Avenue. A quick stop on this place is not a bad Idea.

Had a fantastic lunch here on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Great selection and the best iced coffee I've had in a long time. Don't miss out on the Jaffa slice. Service was a little slow to begin with but they were busy. Heaps of outdoor seating.

Delighted with good food range that offered fresh and healthy choices. Some savoury. Others sweet. Coffee of a high standard and pleasant cafe to sit and linger, would recommend and will revisit.

We enjoyed the variety of healthy choices at their Cromwell Cafe. So good - we bought their recipe book signed by the owner who was in the cafe when we stopped for lunch. Great coffee!! Maybe new staff since other negative reviews were posted?

We passed through Alexandra on our way from Wanaka to Dunedin. And here we found the Tin Goose. This is a small restaurant but obviously very popular. There is some indoor seating, but lots of outdoor seating under some nice trees. The menu included many healthy choices and the presentation and taste was top notch. A good choice in Alexandra!

Unfriendly, rude staff. Not welcoming at all. Average coffee and watery, tasteless milkshake. Will not stop next time.

Stopped off here for lunch on way from Dunedin to Wanaka. We were rewarded with an outdoor table in the sun - Alexander is a very warm spot in the summer but still surrounded by mountains. Lots of options for lunch from salads, to focaccia and more. Opted for a salad and a grilled veggie focaccia and both were large... More
