Excellent coffee and muffins (to die for). The café has been decorated in a theme of an age of recent past - of a time of post-war décor and the accoutrements and artifacts of a time past. It has a rustic interior very tastefully done.

My friend and I were just travelling through Twizel and decided to stop here for a late lunch and coffee. We both had wraps both the crispy chicken and breakfast ones are yummy and the coffee quick too. The staff are lovely and friendly also. Overall I'd recommend if your passing through or live here.

Hi Dined here for lunch 15/5/16. Delicious corn fritters with bacon (and I paid extra to have some mushrooms added), nice big serving and it was sooo tasty! Hubby had a beer burger which he was very happy with. Service with a smile and very quick! Thanks

we went for the cafe and the mini golf, out of season - just and it was closed in the middle of the afternoon, but there was nothing on the doors to say so and the person inside just gave us a withering glance when we had the cheek to knock the door! Won't be giving you any of my... More

Really neat decor and atmosphere... coffee is organic and really nice. The muffins are the best! Staff are very friendly also... great selection of newspapers to read while u wait. The mini golf seems a little random but may appeal to families with children. The cooked food looked nice coming to other tables also... hope to try before we leave...

Great food and fantastic coffee. Home made pies are fantastic. We have been here as part of a large group and on our own and service and food always faultless.

We went here for coffee and cake after our mini golf, the service was very slow we waited for ages, our coffee cam out way before the food so by the time our food arrived our coffee was finished, how ever it was very nice.
