We came here for a quick bite before continuing on a road trip. Not a whole lot to say.. What I got was fine - chips and nuggets. The pizzas looked great. Probably one of the cheaper places we found in New Zealand.

We shared a fantastic Seafood Chowder and beef nachos. We took a cream donut on the train for afternoon tea and it was also a really nice. Lots of the locals eat here and one had recommended this place to us, you won't be disappointed.

Crust is like a slightly more toasted white bread (vs crisp high heat crust or thicker pan pizza crust) and there is lots of cheese. It's fine, it's still pizza. Nice but expensive side salads and great dessert section.

Great coffee, great staff & wicked pies (especially the mince varieties) !! Note the large coffees are effectively buckets so go for regular if you don't want too much volume :-)

This hidden gem carries on the tradition of the previous Dutch owners. The pizza's are divine. There are lots of options to choose from and oh boy, the pizza's are good. If you don't fancy their options you can even make your own. The pizza's...More

Generous portions & a good amount of topping on the pizzas. The food is fine, nothing special. The service could have been more attentive.

Massive cup of flat white coffee and full breakfast fit for a coal miner set me up for a motor cycle trip over Arthurs Pass.

Established in 1982 the Bonzai has been under new management since June 2015. Now known as the Bonzai Cafe, it still provides all the old favourites, great pizza's and some of the best coffee to be found on the Coast. We've been continuing to improve the range of food available and extended our evening dining menu. We pride ourselves on excellent house made meals and good old West Coast service. All our produce is freshly baked and prepared on site. We make all our own cakes, pies, breads and savouries.
