Real Food. We believe the secret to a great sandwich is great ingredients. Our bread is baked fresh every morning by a local baker. Our meat is free range and local, crafted the old-fashioned way by an artisan butcher. Our cheese is handmade by a variety of South Island cheesemakers. Our condiments are made in-house daily. Our salad is grown and fresh-picked daily. Enjoy

Best sandwiches ever combined with wonderful personal service. We left feeling very special. Put it on the must visit list for Hokitika. Get there by 1.15pm for lunch to avoid disappointment. We almost missed out on experiencing this unique venue.

Seriously good sandwiches (The Coaster for breakfast much recommended). The service warm, friendly and very helpful. We left full with a need for long walks.

The best sandwich I’ve had in a long time. Beautiful fresh ciabatta bread (brown or gluten-free bread also available), generously filled with locally made/grown & free-range ingredients and finished with house-made sauces.

Amazing sandwiches with fabulous locally baked bread and flavoursome fillings from local producers. Phone ahead to order if you can to save waiting, they are extremely busy because the food is so good.
