“Fantastic salad”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

I ordered lunch here whilst waiting for the Tranz Alpine train to leave. I had the Scallop Salad and it was fantastic. A large salad with lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, sun-dried tomato, julliened carrot and red capsicum, stuffed green olives, pumpkin seeds and cucumber with a great salad dressing. Oh, and half a dozen perfectly cooked scallops.
I recommend stopping here!

“great food, even better coffee”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

in the heart of greymouth, 1min walk from the train station, great to fuel up before a drive, or to relax just off the train

“What a joke”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

Arrived, took ages to get service. Food was ridiculously expsnsive. Service was terrible. Must only exist from young people that are working in the mines that know no better and have money to burn. Seems like it is run by a miner too.

“Outrageously expensive”
Reviewed January 1, 2011

We are touring the south island from Wellington. This place looked good from the outside and does caffe L'Affare coffee. However no one seems to have trained the staff how to make a long black as it came out as a huge americano piping hot and undrinkable. A simple panini is $9.50 and all food items seemed tiny and over-priced. This would be very expensive even in welly. A piece of cake is $7. Captive market if tourists. Huge opportunity for some competition in Greymouth

“Overcharged and underfed - service beyond bad”
Reviewed June 7, 2010

We went here because our daughter had been to the cafe about a year earlier with friends of ours, when they did the train, and it had been very good - well it must have changed hands. Very little food for the money charged (two pieces of thin wholemeal bread, not toasted, with one tiny bit of bacon $6.50) badly presented and they overcharged us and forgot to bring my coffee - had to ask for it. We would never go back and would not recommend it.
