Stopped on the off chance of a cuppa. A small cup of tea was NZD 4.30 - a total rip off for what was about half a cups worth once the dunked teabag had been removed. Curt service.

We tried chicken, mince and steak, mushroom and blue cheese pies all great. The coffee was distinctly average though. The cafe offers cabinet food and a selection of locally useful groceries and climbing gear for hire.
