“Biggest doughnuts I've ever seen!”

A quick breakfast before leaving town. Such a cute little bakery in someones converted garage. Great tea and delicious pastries. The jam filled doughnut was amazing and the biggest i've come across!!

“Brilliant selection - great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We visited here after the glacier walk. They were having a doughnut day and the selection was wonderful, along with savouries and cakes. The self serve coffee was a nice simple touch, I do recommend stopping by.

“Huge range to choose from”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

The last thing we expected to find in the village shops was a bakery with so much fresh food and a large range to choose from. We stocked up for our trip along the coast and were sorry we hadn't bought more. We found the found the food fresh and reasonably priced. We would recommend this as a place to visit and try a range.

“average bakery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

lonely planet raves about this place but i thought its rather average. the wholesome bread i had bought was old and tasteless.
the empanadas were just ok. nothing exciting and quit expensive everything.
