Nice atmosphere but the staff are not very friendly. Ordered a bowl of hot chips and when it came out the bowl was only half full, or half empty! Coffee was terrible. It tasted like burnt milk with no taste of coffee and looked like murky dish washing liquid. Dirty tables everywhere and it wasn't even busy at the time I went.

Excellent local food.Good portion sizes and very flavoursome. We enjoyed our lunch so much we came back for dinner - also excellent. Has a cute little gift shop in the back, and has a bar.

We arrived late afternoon when most places would be closed so it was nice to see plenty of choice. They had a whole section for Gluten free and were very friendly and helpful.

Bad service. Bad food. Bad service. How it is ranked number 2 on trip advisor I don't know?!? A decent coffee was all I wanted after a long drive from Nelson but no.... Burnt milk and bitter coffee.
