Highway Diner
Ranked #11 of 11 Restaurants in Balclutha
Cuisines: Diner
Description: One of the great things about touring in New Zealand is the great quality of the breakfasts. Fresh eggs, well-cooked bacon, good coffee etc.The Highway Diner in Balclutha is the exception that proves the rule.The array of deep fried foods under the glass counter is impressive; they may even be good.But bacon and eggs was a disaster. Eggs over-cooked; bacon watery, toast from wafer thin bread, coffee very poor. A great pity.

Not quite at level for sit down meals as it was a year or so ago. Could be a bit more generous and showing variety. Used to show image of what you were getting. Clearly popular for take outs and good value for that. Need to give staff more energy and improve image. Are they doing shifts that are too long? Arms full of tats are not the best look despite here good manner. Help her get rid of them and move on.
Food is ok and filling. Just keep in mind that fashionable plates do not make for great food.
