Charming cafe in a gorgeous little town. We had lunch here and we all had delicious meals. We chose to sit out the back on the benches. There is also limited seating inside. The staff were friendly and very efficient.

My wife & I were on a private tour and happened to stop in Glenorchy and noticed this quaint cafe. It looked quite nice inside.

A quiet morning in town but a delicious breakfast sandwich. We took a walk down to the water afterwards and the town had started to fill up. A great escape from Queenstown.

Nice coffee, interesting setup, great little town and amazing location near the lake. Staff is friendly and helpful even when you have slightly more unusual requests.

As we walked in the first impression was this is a nice little spot but soon realised that that was going to be the only really positive thing about the place. The staff were terribly slow, non of the food in the cabinet was labelled...so it took an age to serve people as they all had to ask what was what, the soup I ordered was supposed to be spinach and corn, it was watery and had not much taste. My husband had a cheese and spinach scone which very average and the coffee arrived after well the food . Would advise to give it a miss.More

This cafe took me by surprise. Quite an unassuming little place but the food was exceptional! Their all day breakfast menu is brilliant. I had the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and it was one of the best ‘all day breakfast’ meals I have ever...had. Definitely recommend.More

Lovely lunch spot in Glenorchy, we had the chicken sandwich (which was massive) and the quiche. Would 100% eat here again

Lovely wee cafe and great outdoor area however the 1 star is really for the food which was the main purpose of going in. I asked for a BLT to take away on GF bread and was charged $17. Thought this was pretty steep and...clarified with the girl on the till that it was just the BLT on its own to which she replied yes but that it was an extra $2 for the GF bread. The sandwich was brought out in a bag and I left (to be fair I didn’t check it there). When it came time to eat my lunch, I pulled out a sandwich that was no bigger than my hand, and I have very small hands. Second to this, on the first bite the bread crumbled into pieces and pretty much disintegrated in my hands. To be charged extra for bread that doesn’t stay together and to have cost $17 for such a small sandwich was astonishing. So disappointed in the quality and over-priced food here.More

This cafe has a lot of good choices on their lunch menus. Surprising good food in a small town. Staff are friendly and you can sit indoor or outdoor to enjoy your meal.
