The food was okay - not great value for money but once I had ordered, paid and looked around I realised the place is decidedly grubby. Would not revisit.

Seriously, this was an exceptional breakfast - eggs benedict. And the coffee was very good as well - and to think almost missed it - free wifi, and sun streaming in, with a peek of an open vista rather than just other shops - nice feel.

This cafe has changed hands and it shows. The new owners are friendly and helpful and the service slick. The cafe looks bright and clean. We enjoyed their coffee and cinnamon bagel - in fact we opted for a second coffee! We will return next time we're in Timaru.

I visited the cafe on the morning of the piping champs and they were unindated with customers but they still kept smiling and provided great hot coffee and a great breakfast. I do like nice smiley people.

Stopped here for coffee and a muffin. Coffee great with a double shot. Berry muffin large and deliciously fresh.
