Quite possibly the best fry-up/cooked breakfasts in the city - the food isn't drizzled in anything, nor inventively garnished or dredged through something; and is likely better for it. It is, however, fresh because of the volumes they do, and fast and honest in a...simple diner setting. Also not a good place for anyone vegetarian.More

2 hot cakes, bacon and banana with maple syrup $9.90 and I’m so full. One of us had bacon Buttie and it was stuffed with bacon $8, little extra if you want brown bread). Another of us had the bun with bacon and egg. Americans...coffee is $4. Good prices. Good food. Great service. Menu online and weekday lunch specials on the board.More

Just terrible service, ordered two bacon butties, came out on one plate. The place had flys flying around, it was dirty, and the food tasted bad. will not be going back.

Great parking, it starts with that. I found dedicated parking spaces next to the restaurant and have never had to look for one or worry about the time. Great food, great people and ample of options available to choose from. Highly recommended for the residents...or if you're flying by Dunedin. Not to be missed!More

If you happen to be in the harbour side area at lunch time, this is a good place to grab a filling bite. A bacon buttie, with chips/coffee is great value and will keep you sustained all afternoon.

Came by for breakfast. It located just behind the Railway station, just cross the footbridge over the tracks and you should see it to your left. The menu is fairly large with options for a buttie (sliced white bread), hotdog or burger. They also have...other items as well like chips and sausages. There is a specials board as you come in so you can easily see what's on offer for the day. We ordered and paid at the counter and sat at a table. Think they had 2 bacon butties for $10. The dining area around the back is quite nice and the service is really good. Friendly and helpful staff. Buttie was nice as was the hot chocolate. Quite filling too. Good place for a fairly quick breakfast.More

I have been looking forward to this for ages and ages and ages. Went for breakfast with the other half. I had the bacon and eggs which is 2 eggs (they didn't ask how I wanted them);1 canned tomato; some very, very, very thinly sliced...bacon (and not much of that) and 2 slices of white (barely buttered) toast. That was $10. You could add 1 hash brown, baked bean or something else for $1.50 each OR mushrooms or a sausage for $2. I had a hash brown which was full of oil when I bit into it. Disappointing - I barely could taste the bacon it was sooooo thin. My other half had a bacon buttie for $6.50 (he could have had 2 for $10 but thought 1 was enough...it wasn't). He got a coffee which was good (large $4.70) and I got a chocolate milk shake with a shot of coffee for $6.50 which was damn good. I just was disappointed. Maybe I built it up in my head. Maybe I should have gotten something else. No complaints about the service. The place is clean but stark. Parking is dodgy. Lots of men in and out. Apart from staff I was the only female which isn't an issue. Yeah maybe I should have gone with something else.More

Friendly service and an excellent menu that is value for money. I always leave full and without feeling like I have broken the bank - 5/5 for sure
