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.

Driving out of Nelson to the North, we chanced upon this unassuming place. They mae wonderful Eggs Benedict for one of us, with poached eggs on toast for the other. Good coffee, and good chai latte. A lovely experience ! The menu is wider than...our two choices.More

After finding two other establishments closed, we were getting a bit "desperate" for brunch. Saw a sign for Zink, and thought why not. The cafe shares with a Webber shop, and so upon entry we did not no what to expect. The greeting was friendly...and our order for 2 x eggs benny and a cup of coffee (3 x shot) was taken. The coffee arrived promptly and was simply perfect for my taste. (I am not sure but I think it was the milk they used - I am sure it was not "supermarket" milk) The eggs benny was done just right. Two pieces of toast, heaps of spinach, eggs done to perfection, lots of Hollandaise. Only "negative" comment I would make is $5.00 for 2 pieces of bacon (extra) was a bit steep, but it was an extra and we did order it (and I do understand overheads etc) As a previous reviewer said "what a bonus find" - highly recommendedMore

Lovely little cafe, often call in for a coffee and cinnamon scroll that is gorgeous every time. Enjoy the unique book swap area there, so browse through these at the same time. Very friendly helpful staff. Colouring paper and toys there also.

Location is great for me, enjoy taking clients there for a meeting or friends for a catch up, nice choice of seating including comfy couches, and it's lovely and warm in winter. Coffee is great and the food selection divine.

It's a little odd that this cafe shares its premises with a BBQ shop, however the food is great and so is the coffee. I recommend the raspberry and white chocolate muffins, warmed.

My 9 year old and I agree that we had the yummiest pie in the world here! Coffee is great and the service is friendly. There's also a book exchange if you feel like lingering for a read. Get there early if you want a...pie though because the secret's out now!More

There was a great array of cabinet food typical of a cafe which knows its clientele and what they like. There was a wide selection of seating options to cater for single diners through to larger groups with tables of beautiful polished wood (quite a...feature) and a gas fire to add ambiance. I opted for mushroom soup followed by an apple tea which was a delightful palate freshner. Both were enjoyed.More

This cafe is attached to a BBq product centre and quite a pleasant surprise among the Weber bbqs. Set in a complex with a fruit and vege store on site too. Lovely food. Always busy. A good indication of its quality of food. And if...you are looking for a Weber BBQ, you need look no further.More

Zinc is a strange little cafe attached to a BBQ shop and offers a delicious range of salads, cakes and sandwiches on artisan breads. We've enjoyed a lot of lunches at Zinc over our holidays and recommend it.

While this cafe is in the middle of a BBQ shop we were very impressed with the taste of the food on offer. Best quiche and best custard square, and good coffee also. We were pleasantly surprised!
