“Overpriced and Very Average”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

Used to love coming to this quaint little cafe but on a visit a a few days ago was shocked by the very over-priced quiche and pasta. Shop wanted to charge for parmesan cheese also! Bye bye guys. Good Luck!

“Lovely old house”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

We always stop by on our travels to have a break here and look at the beautiful wool and crafts. Although the crafts and wool shops are great the restaurant is completely average. The food is nothing special, just the usual counter food and the make of coffee they use is truly not the nicest that I have tasted. The service is fairly slow and not very friendly. The last time we were there I got the impression they actually do you a favour to serve you. But I suppose we will be back, bad coffee or not, because it is the only place we know of in Ashburton and it is a good way to stretch the legs and walk around to the craft shops on a long journey.
