“Terrible!”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

My wife and I had the misfortune of eating at this cafe while waiting for the train to Christchurch. We went in at 9 am and ordered breakfast only to be told that they'd sold out of our selection (Bubble and Squeak). We both then ordered scrambled egg with hash browns. The egg was ok but the hash browns were fried to within an inch of their lives. The coffee was terrible as well - NZ has a reputation for having great flat whites but that reputation obviously wasn't earned at this cafe.
Not recommended unless you have too much money and low standards.

“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.
