“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed the initial atmosphere but was sat away from others. Very poor vege option, long wait for food and not amazing when it did come out. Maybe just unlucky....

“Nice place with good service....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Was walking around Blenheim on Queens Birthday Monday and this was one of the few places that was open, most had closed for the day. We were the only couple in the cafe for almost the whole time there, well over an hour, so not sure where everyone was? Good service and this time I had the omelet and the wife eggs benedict. Very pleasant time, with the fire going and as we where the only people there nice and quite and very lacing. Others arrived as the morning went on so it slowly filled up. Must be a small town thing on a long weekend as there was almost no one around the place, weird? Anyway great place to go, recommended.

“Pre theatre dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Pleasant staff, quick service which was important as we only had an hour before the theatre. Nice wine at reasonable price and all three meals were lovely. Will definitely be back.
