We had stayed two nights at a Hotel near Nugget point and on the second morning we decided to head down to Cavells for breakfast, we certainly were happy we did, great food, quick friendly service and awesome coffee, great work guys!

“Fantastic Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We'd just done the Shotover Jet, it was a hot day and felt like a beer, Cavells is really cool, it was late afternoon and had a BLT and a beer. Brilliant BLT was on thick toast and the bacon was delish, misses had the carrot cake and said the coffee was nice. I'll be going back for the BLT.

“Kid Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Had a wonderful lunch out at Cavells. Amazing out side area we sat under the umbrellas on the outside tables. Lunch was great, tasty and looked good on the plate, the staff were fantastic with the kids. They have a great kids menu with healthy options, not just fish n chips. Took about 20 mins to get lunch which was ok they were really busy. Huge fire place in there, will have to come back in the winter when its going. Will be back again. Thanks.

Thanks for the review, January can be a really busy time for us so glad to hear you didn't have to wait too long for the food. Glad you liked the outside area, we count ourselves very lucky to have that view.

Sorry to hear you were unhappy with the service, although disappointing to get feedback like yours, we do find it invaluable in being able to consistently review and improve our service.
I hope you give us another chance and come again, let us know if you are heading our way again and we'd very much like to show that this was a one off incident.
