Great coffee. Last homemade biscuits, cakes, filled rolls and pies. Well worth the stop. Just make sure its Hello Shack cafe.

Our first impression was of rubbish bins overflowing and rubbish strewn about the front of the premises and along the footpath blowing down the street. The service was indifferent and food below average. I would not recommend this establishment to travellers and considering the quality...More

WE stopped and got some pea Soup. It was peas alright but barely liquid. Food here was once exceptional now its poor and the staff just cant be bothered. Don't even get a thank you after paying. We pass often but stop only if desperate.

We stopped in for a quick lunch before driving on to Christchurch and were pleasantly surprised by the homey feel it gave off. We had the Steak Pie and a Choc chip banana muffin which were both really great!

We needed a quick bite before touring a sheep farm, and we happened on this friendly, charming little spot. The selection of foods was excellent, the prices reasonable, and the service excellent. We even got to sit outdoors, where local tweety birds shared our crumbs...More

I'll admit that I have always been drawn to a restaurant when it advertises "homemade." But in this case I have to say we were disappointed. Choices were limited so I wound up with a vegetarian quiche which was just "ok." The signs advertised pizza...More

Springfield is in the foothills of the southern Alps. Just east of Aurthur's Pass, on the way to Christchurch. You can't miss the bright yellow happy cafe :) We serve homecooked cabinet food, freshly baked scones, muffins and slices, woodfire pizza friday nights and weekends and also a variety of salads depending on the season . Chips & Wedges and homemade soup also available in the busy seasons
