I had the eggs Benedict which was served on a potato hash. It just didn't look or taste quite right. Service okay. Good outdoor seating area. Seemed popular with the locals. Maybe I just arrived on a bad day!

You had our eggs benedict which I guess most places serve on toast. Our menu clearly states ' served on home baked hash', I'm sorry you missed this and obviously prefer bread. Had you said something to us when staff returned to you table (which they always do) we could have toasted you some:)

We often stop at the Beach House Cafe when passing through Kaikoura, try to time it so that we are there at lunchtime. Great food, great coffee and and great surroundings.

We enjoyed an excellent coffee here....and we're sorry it wasn't lunch time, as the food looked great. A lovely little cafe.

Stopped in here for a mid afternoon snack on the way to Christchurch. Staff were very helpful and it was very nice sitting out in the courtyard in the sun. Unfortunately they were out of seafood chowder, but we had areas ant meal. Would definitly stop here again.

Down from Auckland for a wedding and just had the best eggs Benedict with bacon served on potato hash. My partner had the seafood chowder too. Very generous servings, tasty and a great price. Will come back before we leave. The views of the mountains are great too.
