After having an awful breakfast in Kaikoura at 'Encounters Cafe' we were driving down the line towards christchuch when we noticed a cafe with plenty of cars parked outside. We entered to find pleasant staff, a nice selection of food and cake on offer and some some scrummy things on the board. We decided on a cheese and onion toasty, a pea and ham soup which was part of a deal with your choice of coffee and muffin or scone for $14 and a slice of carrot cake we wondered into the lovely garden at the rear. Water was swiftly delivered to the table along with cutlery. Within minutes we had our soup (and an extra bowl so we could share) which came with a lovely seedy thick brown bread, a very tasty toasty with pickled pieces of cucumber and tomato on the side. Our coffees were hot and not to strong. Such a pleasure to eat here after our terrible 'encouter' in Kaikoura early today.
