“breakfast or brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

When travelling from Christchurch to Tekapo I always plan to stop here. Excellent eggs and bacon, but there is a good choice of food, and a cabinet with many pies, quiches and other baked fans. Another cabinet offers great choice of sweets and chocolates. The service is not very fast, the premises are wide and comfortable, although sometimes noisy, in fine weather time the outside tables are very nice. Free Wi-Fi is excellent. The annexed shop provides top quality fresh fruit and excellent bread.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Food was edible but could have been straight out of the grocer's freezer. Very expensive for what it was (lunch was almost 50 for two adults and a baby). For a *much* better meal in the same price range, try Poppies in Twizel instead. We went there the next day and were very pleased.

“Scones but forgot coffee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Ordered coffee & scones. Scones were delivered to table but no coffee. Thought it would come shortly after. Knew something was wrong when couple served after us got their coffee first. After 15 minutes asked about coffee. Couldn't find the order. Managed to get coffees after that but we're only warm. Not sure we will stop here again.
