A variety of quiches with interesting combos, and frittatas on offer for lunch. Generous servings and good coffee.

Nice people but food selection is limited. It's a crammed little Cafe but there is seating and tables outside. Toilets are clean.

The Woolstore was once a favourite lunch stop for me when visiting Oamaru, but when I returned recently after a year's absence, I couldn't believe how much it had changed for the worse. Once a clean, cheerful, well appointed cafe with pleasant and efficient staff,...More

The place was cold, the food unseasoned, c'mon this was supposed to be a curry, people expect adrenalin-rushing spice. There was a hair in the food and the chicken was not hot, infact it was still mostly at fridge temperature, that is a health risk...More
