Ideal breakfast spot in the middle of Ashburton with decent coffee and delicious bacon and eggs. It is a large interesting venue with a variety of seating options and a large deli area with a good range of foods and gifts to browse. In a fairly bland town, these guys are having a good crack with a stylish eatery suited to all meal occasions that would stand up in any city.

We had an hour and a half to kill whilst we waited for the Naked Bus to Wanaka. With suitcases and our boys in tow we needed to find somewhere warm and close to the bus stop. We stumbled on this place and parked ourselves in a comfortable corner and ordered excellent coffees and hot chocolates and then proceeded to sample some wonderful sweet delights (the slices were amazing) so we ordered more for the bus trip to Wanika. Friendly helpful staff and beautifully clean premises. Well worth a visit.
