“Nice Little Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Checked the reviews on this cafe and decided to come over and try. The food and the environment in this cafe is nice and relaxing. I ordered the Angus beef burger which was delicious and I enjoyed it! The price is also reasonable and I would really recommend people to come over if they asked.

“Kia Kaha”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

We enjoyed our breakfast before heading off to Punakaiki. So coffee and toast and bacon and eggs and some smoothies. Everything okay and a good fill up for the long road ahead. We liked the relaxed atmosphere.

“Excellent Little Cafe- Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We had this cafe on our list of places to trip based upon reviews. We were both pleasantly surprised at how much we liked this place and how often we returned.

We grabbed, lunch, breakfast and some snacks during our time in Franz Josef.

For lunch I had this herb pasta which was absolutely fantastic. The staff assured me that it was a very popular item that day. My husband had a lamb/venision stew and he still says it was one of his favorite dishes the whole trip. For breakfast my husband had a full meal of eggs, meat, toast, etc and I stuck to muffins, toast and juices.

Full of beans was reasonably priced and the food was quite excellent. We missed it once we left Franz Josef.

Oh and Free Wifi too!

“Nice breakfast, good coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

We enjoyed a nice hot breakfast before heading off on our glacier hike. Service was prompt, we would like to say friendly but the waitress didn't smile or even respond when we thanked her.
The meal was nice, small servings for the price but nice food none the less.
