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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What stands out about this world class cafe is the staff and then the food and coffee!!! We went there for brunch one of us has a dairy allergy. The barista heard we needed dairy free butter options so he ran to the supermarket to...buy some for the kitchen. The breakfast was superb the perfect eggs and scrumptious bacon. It was so good we went again the next morning have ordered the big breakfast, which to be honest was amazing!! The coffee and ambiance was so good we stayed for a second round.More

2nd best coffee I’ve ever had in the South Island, only a smidgen behind The Greedy Cow at Lake Tekapo which was absolutely stunning. Mathew was a great host, fast and efficient. Would highly recommend!

Absolutely terrible experience. Service so slow that partners meal which was delivered first had been totally consumed before the other one was delivered. Both should have been provided together. Table was so wobbly it had to be stabilised with a folded brochure and we could...not move to another table as it was dirty. Basic table maintenance issue that it seemed no one cared about.More

Pleasantly surprised. Didn't have high hopes walking in but we direly needed a coffee. Honestly so good! Food was fresh, reasonably priced, really tasty and arrived quickly. Coffee was spot on! A nice surprise.

Popped in for breakfast and was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. I only had the granola bowl and some tea but it was delicious. Probably the best cup of tea I’ve had in ages. Proper tea leaves and with extra hot water. Spot...on.More

A welcoming and comfortable café, the lounge upstairs has a lovely view over Seymour Park. Well patronised at 10 in the morning. Food options are very nice, the salmon filo bucket and the ham cheese and pineapple toastie were excellent. Coffee and hot chocolate also...very nice. Recommend.More

Went there for the review and it looked like it would have been a good place to have breakfast. Was however tuned off by staff - somewhat off-putting. No customer service - felt like a nuisance ordering coffee. We decided to just get the coffee...and leave.More

Have been many times before with stand out food and service BUT not the last visit recently. Served warm pinot gris -small bottles from open shelf, had to ask for a clean glass and for table to be cleaned. Food was average serving size was...also average. Witnessed some unhygienic practices from staff. Took a friend for first time experience and they weren't impressed. We wont be back.More

Very few places open in Blenheim on a Sunday. Found this place on our morning walk. Great breakfast and friendly staff. Coffee could have been hotter.

I had a tasty kumera stack which was made vegan to meet my dairy free requirements. It is also gluten free. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a good selection of foods and a good atmosphere.

I visited this place only once for breakfast and had a good experience. Very centrally located, Watery Mouth Cafe has seating both downstairs and upstairs. There were many customers - both dining in and for takeaways. My breakfast was served promptly and was nice. I...will happily dine here again.More
