Had a late lunch after visiting the Steampunk HQ
Nice food and reasonable service.

However I would suggest that you don't be so condescending about variations in English.
I asked for skim milk in my coffee and then corrected it to the Kiwi term which is trim.
How hard is it to laugh about the variations that creep into our language? Rather than be heard muttering about foreigners and the fact that they need to speak English! You were downright abrupt and rude to the German and Indian couple in the restaurant. I found this upsetting as 99.9% of kiwis are very tolerant of differences!

Had two coffees and a slice of carrot cake here. Carrot cake was really moist and delicious. In the centre of old part of town so easy to find. Staff helpful and efficient. Recommended.

We were at this lovely café for breakfast, I had the fruit and muesli cup, my hubby, the eggs benedict. Both were so delicious and we were disappointed we hadn't found this café the day before! The wait staff were friendly and efficient. A must for anyone to visit for the best café food in town!

We dropped in here for a quick coffee during a trip around the older part of Oamaru. The ambience of the place says it all, really. The coffee and the service was great.
