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

Popped in for a coffee and stayed for 2. Good service, really helpful when we needed to heat up milk for the little one. Cakes were very tempting!

We stopped in at the Tin Goose Cromwell for brunch on our way home from a short break in Queenstown. The cafe was busy on the morning we arrived but we were warmly welcomed in by the lady serving behind the counter. The selection of food in the display cabinet looked stunning and I settled on a chicken frittata type... More

Great coffee and a lovely display and choice of colourful different things on offer in the cabinet. Nice being able to relax afterwards with my coffee and the magazine that was there. Obviously a successful business.

Loved the professional friendly service & great value for money meals. They were healthy, tasty & yummy! There were 7 of us in the party & they had no problems in getting food out to us quickly alongwith a friendly smile. Brilliant!
