I tried this nice restaurant this morning after looking at the reviews on Tripadvisor and Lonely Planet. They have breakfast all day long which I love. Its a nice little cosy cafe with super nice staff. You can either seat inside or outside and they even provide blanket if you are a bit chilly. Cheapest breakfast I had in NZ so far, very good and well presented. Im not a coffee drinker so I cant comment on that. I will definately go back before I leave.

Excellent spot for a refreshing coffee and cake while on fieldwork. The lemon slice was nice and tangy, while the flat white velventy and strong. Service was prompt and friendly, premesises were clean, and food was well presented. Would have returned for brekkie had the situation permitted.

I heard so much about this Picnic Cafe. We stayed at Ibis on Easter weekend and just have to have one of our breakfast here on Easter weekend. The food and coffee was very good. Thanks Lynn, Joff and Team. Friendly service too! Love the menu covers. Where did you get them?.

A little café down by the lake, we chose to lunch here because of the Tripadvisor reviews. Nice light spaces, with tables indoors and out, good food and okay service. A more relaxed and pleasant location than eating in the main street. We would return.

This place is tucked away and tiny BUT it ticks all the boxes for brekkie and great coffee. It seems to always be crowded. Go and enjoy!
