Great centrally located corner cafe. I would recommend the kumara hash. Good coffee it's always a positive when the barrista knows what a piccolo is! Only issue would be poached eggs weren't runny on 2 separate occasions.

Only consumed ice teas and smoothies so i can't speak for the food offered The drinks were rather uninspired - ingredient combinations sounded good but did not really taste that way.

Description
A big city cafe in a "little" town. Great coffee, fantastic local craft beers and lovely local wines. Our menu features local and seasonal fare, with options ranging from hot breakfasts to afternoon indulgences, a wide variety of cooked and pre-prepared lunches from our cabinet, as well as gluten-free and vegetarian treats. We can even make you up anything from our cabinets or menu as a picnic to go! We're open seven days a week from 7.00am until 4.00pm. We serve the bustling breakfast, lunch and coffee trade, and the cafe is a well-utilised space for meetings. We are fully-licensed and also love hosting private functions. Come upstairs for relaxed dining or enjoy the famous Marlborough sun outside.
