We stopped here for morning tea in this awesome spot of New Zealand after walking to Pancake rocks blowhole across the road, sat in front of the heater and enjoyed coffee in the Lounge chairs in the atrium...magic

We did the walkway which was fantastic. And thought we would grab a coffee to takeaway. Bad choice! A small coffee costs $4.90 plus you pay an extra 50 cents for the cup. No one smiled. Obviously need new management to change the culture. Liven...More

The food was bordering on average, the coffee was okay and the system of getting your own food was a little bit annoying but the staff was nice and helpful. Overall not the best place to go for lunch but not a horrible experience.

We were made welcome for morning tea with coffee and brownies. It was well patronised with lots of crafts for sale. A car park was handy to this area.

It was very quiet when we popped in but we were treated warmly and we had a freshly made muffin and some delicious coffees. The soy milk was steamed to perfection!

The coffee here is some of the worst I have ever had. The service was only slightly better. The food was ok.

One of the most appalling cafe's I have had the misfortune to visit. Transient workers who were more interested in playing practical jokes with each other than acknowledge customers. Ordered a coffee and raisin toast, coffee was cold, week and watery, and the raisin toast,...More
