“ok meal”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

our family visited for evening meal. On the menu it said the burgers were sourdough buns. They werent, just regular buns. The chips were very fatty. However, the lamb shanks were beautiful. Although they were served with veges and an unusual salad. The price was reasonable, particularly for Hanmer. It was a nice meal. You ordered from counter so limited service. Ok place for price and quality.

“Great morning coffee”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Initially wanted some coffee during our short morning visit. Turned out to be a very enjoyable morning, coffee was nice - Americano for 4NZ, good value for pricing. Internet was also free for some 100MBs or so.

“Surprised by awesome food & value”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

We visited On a Sunday morning not long after they opened. We ordered a couple of flat whites - the kids wanted carrot cake & chocolate brownie ... & when these were served these were WOW , beautifully presented with a drizzle of chocolate sauce & fresh whipped cream & slighted warmed carrot cake that was light & delicious . The chocolate brownie came out and it was not alone ! There were two slices drizzled in chocolate & Carmel sauce with fresh whipped cream & a small side of preserved/jam type fruit! Outstanding! & totally unexpected - but would go again & recommend to everyone. Coffee was awesome too!
