Met friends from Nelson here for brunch. Food in the cabinet look yummy but we ordered breakfast. Coffees great. Breakfast a bit slow to come out (not busy). The plum sauce that was supposed to come with the big breakfast never arrived and we had to ask for it. Also had ordered a side of yoghurt-also didn't arrive until requested. The waitress was very sour-didn't look like she wanted to be there, even to the point of appearing rude. Smiles lacking everywhere.
Food was average-French toast must have been briefly dipped in egg as it was dry and tasteless. Lack of maple syrup as well. Toast from supermarket was not expected. Overall experience was mediocre-but at least there is somewhere to have breakfast on Rapuara Road.

The travel brochure said it was a must do but after going there it's a big must don't. So over rated and certainly nothing of interest....lucky if you can get the ice cream shop lady to smile. Don't bother.

On Easter Saturday (2012) .. 2 couples down from Palmy for the break. We experienced great wine tasting and prices (and took home a few bottles), a cafe with excellent food served by friendly and efficient worker bees in the outdoors in the great weather, we also bought fudge for the whanau, quilting for the ladies, experienced an incomparable shop for sauces, spices, beer, wine, (please excuse me for missing any of your other shelf items).. not the first time we've stopped there, and certainly not the last. . An excellent collection of different shops.
