The fare is good mid-range price food; the pies have crisp pastry and are tasty and well-filled with quality ingredients. The coffee was a tasteless and poor quality.

Popped in for a pit stop after the long drive from Motueka. The coffee was a bit strong for me but the cakes were pretty good. Yes, pretty good indeed. Art work, furnishings etc - well done.

After a substandard visit to a nearby cafe, we came here for lunch. Food was generously portioned and tasty. A bit of a wait, but nothing like the place across the road (and it did feel as though everyone descended at once!)
