Mrs Clarks Cafe is a must stop in Riverton. Their cheese rolls are delicious as is their coffee. The staff are friendly and welcoming and made us feel right at home. It is very reasonably priced too!

Had been recommended to call in to Mrs Clarks Cafe for a light lunch and it was an excellent choice. I had the Blue Cod fish cakes with home-made tartare sauce and salad and they were delicious. Couldn't resist a slice of carrot cake afterwards .... absolutely yummy. Would definitely recommend stopping here for lunch.

Was here near end of Nov 2015. Love the coffee here. And the breakfast was awesome. The staff was very friendly. And the overall decor of the place was so warm and lovely.

Week in week out this cafe always has great coffee and scrumptious baking. The menu doesn't change but the food on offer is well presented and tasty. They do pizza nights on Friday and Saturdat.

We stopped at Mrs Clark's Cafe for lunch. We had the mussel fritters and the pulled pork sandwich - both were excellent. The portion sizes were generous, we didn't even have room for a cheese roll once we were done! We will be back next time we are down this way.

This is a great Cafe (could be greater, if staff where more friendly & helpful [treat you like you are interrupting their day] and if they bothered to clear and clean tables efficiently. Food and coffee are great, as ambience but NOT staff. If you can get them to serve you in a friendly fashion, you are on a win...!!!... More

Mrs Clark's ham and eggs was excellent. And the coffee was very very good. Worth the drive from Invercargill for brunch.
