Very friendly welcome and help to get the right table at the right time on a busy Sunday evening.

Great service by our tall, elegant waitress who guided us through probably one of the most interesting menus on our 4 week vacation in New Zealand.

Both had roast fish after a prawn starter and 'fraid to say indulged a bit with the puds! Had Crepe Catalonia and herself had great sorbets and ice cream. Excellent wine list and we enjoyed the Trinity Hill Syrah from Otago.

Fun started when the winners of the a Telegraph Cup (horse race) arrived with the cup, jockey, trainers etc from the meeting at Tretham.

Altogether a pretty fun evening with great food and service. Worth searching out.

Thank Alistair G

Love this place. They closed down unfortunately. We came here on the last week of them being open for schnitzel Wednesdays. I had come here another time last year, and both times were great. They should move to miramar where they can get more lunch clientele.. I think being in the middle of nowhere certainly didn't help with your sales and also being a small cafe where you can't seat all your groups coming in for lunch from around the area. Anyone who is looking for a good German cafe, this is the place. But it's gone.

The deli cafe in roseneath shops is a great place to have breakfast a lunch or even just a coffee .
The staff are friendly and helpful
The food is excellent , the big breakfast that is on the special list often is amazing value with around 4 types of quality sausages we are not talking run of the morning breakfast sausages with the taste of nothing these are proper sausages and a Piece of black pudding stood this out as a great big breakfast and a welcome break from the normal fare covered in hollandaise.
A great place to try. And with a 4min walk to the waterfront take a walk afterwards

This is a light and airy cafe where the food has a slight German twist. Sausages feature!

This cafe is on the Roaseneath hill. There are car parks outside but it is also a good place to include on your walk on the hills.
