Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The legend lives on …. I restrained myself from pastry for my sit down lunch on a recent business trip but the pies were flying out the door so obviously it’s business as usual for this very popular spot! Enjoyed the choice of two good...salads and an excellent flat white. Plenty of room to park up for a bit of time out between meetings even though the place was flat out and appreciated the fast and friendly service.More

Having recently relocated rural, I’ve found this place to be my local with a great and friendly atmosphere. The staff are so friendly and service is so quick. Pies, treats and coffee are a hit, yet to try their breakfast menu but it’s certainly on...the list.More

The cafe team were well informed about gluten cross contamination and took all necessary measures to minimise risk. Good selection of gluten free food. The frittata I had was delicious and caused no gluten reaction! Very very happy!

We stopped in while driving from Christchurch to the West Coast and really enjoyed our stop. Spacious, well organised and lots of options. Mainly writing this review because I chose a Gluten Free pie (I am not coeliac but need to watch my gluten intake)...and it was one of the best I’ve come across. Pastry was delicious - if you hadn’t told me I’d probably believe it was standard. Thanks Darfield Bakery!More

We ate here for lunch recently whilst travelling around the South Island. Hugely popular place! So much on offer and everything looked good! We both had a Lockdown Pie which were very good, one of the better pies I have eaten in a long time....Plenty of flavour and filling. My hot chocolate was also very nice. The bakery also has a large seating area with a variety of tables to be seated at. Nice big fire in central area. I wished we lived closer, I think we would be visiting this bakery more often!More

We went there looking for something different and we found some great pies bead rolls and delicious muffins. The service was great and the staff friendly and they even provided us with a carry bag as we bought a lot of food. We spent $60...for 3 pies 3 filled rolls 3 muffins and a scotch egg so I consider these good prices. I will recommend this place to our friends and return next time we are in the area. There is a bit of pressure to order so you need to be quick in deciding but it is a busy place so this is to be expected. A vaccine pass and mask are required to enter a purchase from here which is great.More

The cafe was busy and it felt a bit pressured to place an order [for a newbie, not knowing the options]. In the end the panini was a bit dry for my liking and the slice a bit sweet, but that's my take. If my...wife had accompanied she would have loved the slice. In the rush I didn't see any muesli slice, but it may have been there. Friendly service and very efficient with coffee and panini quick to the table. Good to have a dividing wall between dining and counter areas - this gave a greater sense of rest and refreshment.More

Super friendly staff, super clean cafe! We had an lovely breakfast and was beautifully presented. Coffee was good too, only down was the latte was served in a cup, which is a kiwi thing, it is not a flat white, it is a latte, which...should be layered in a glass. Would recommend and hope next time we visit the latte is served in a glass!More
