“Good stop off ChCh to Dunedin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

A pleasant cafe. Good selection of cabinet food and a board. Great Kapiti ice cream selection. Quick service in a sunny room with a great fire on cold days. Servings are a bit large thus higher priced. Could be smaller ie cabinet food are huge slices. Worth a stop for good coffee.

“You won't regret a stop here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We came across this gem on a previous trip north when our other choice of a stop was closed. I must say I was pleased that place was closed,, as Nosh was a real find. The food choice is amazing and so deliciously presented you won't find it easy to choose. The first time we were there they had the fire going. This time there was no fire going but the food was every bit as good as the last and we actually drove the km's from Oamaru to have lunch here. Clearly others have made the discovery as there were people coming and going all the time. You might think this is another roadside café in the middle of nowhere but please call in and discover that it is far from that.

“Hidden Jewel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

if you get the chance to stop then do. The coffee isn't the best you will ever have but the food is fresh and tasty and the staff friendly. Take the time to stop in and try it for yourself.
