Best Cheese Rolls in the South

Good Food, Good Selection and Good Coffee. Their cheese rolls wer the best we had in our time down there. Overall a nice spot to stop to lunch or a snack. The only negative would be the length of time we had to wait for our food and coffees considering the cafe was only half full.

Great location and plenty for people with a carnivorous palate, sadly nothing available to suit vegetarians.

My partner and I called into the Tin Goose (TG) in Alexandra around New Year when most of the other cafes were closed for the holiday period. They were doing a roaring trade with customers sitting inside and outside, and the cafe offering a welcome respite and some shade from the scorching Central Otago sunshine and temperatures over 32 degrees...

Asked for Trim Small Flat White and got large not-trim (thus yucky and weak) coffee of some description. When raised the size issue (wasn't aware of milk one until drinking time) dismissive response left me too embarrassed to push issue. To be fair previous experiences here have been ok. Maybe a bad day?

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.
