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.

I was taken out for coffee and snacks by my son and his partner, I'd been here before so knew what to expect, sadly it fell short. The service was as usual friendly and courteous, however they had little to offer by mid morning in...the way of scones, muffins or the like. The coffee was far from hot and after settling for a biscuit I discovered it was a G.F option which wasn't great (hugely sweet and far less dense than expected) I think I would probably try elsewhere next timeMore

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good coffee. Breakfast stack was good, Bao Buns lacked authentic flavor ( quiet bland) and Verve du Vernay Rose was semi flat.

Excellent food with very generous portions. The coffee fantastic and strong (I live in Wellington, so I know a good coffee when I taste it). I had the big breakfast, which was huge. I took the rest home as I couldn’t eat it all. My...sister had the breakfast stack and my brother the chicken on the lunch menu. I would definitely recommend and I’ll be returning on my next visit to Invercargill.More

Our favourite cafe and coffee in Invercargill. There is usually a good range of food in the cabinet. Well known for allergy friendly and gluten free food for those who need it.

We have enjoyed the huge variety of food on offer here for breakfast, lunch and snacks. Best & strongest coffee in years and the best juice in months. Breakfast is delicious as is everything else we have tried.

Popped in for coffee while the OH was visiting the Motorcycle Mecca. Was tempted by the date and walnut bread, so my quick coffee became brunch. There was a bit of a wait for the coffee -- the place was really busy -- but the...waitress acknowledged this and apologised, and the coffee was definitely worth the wait. And the toasted bread was scrummy.More

Nice surrounds and big range of food but worst coffee I’ve had in a long time. I asked for them to redo my coffee as mine was so burnt it was not drinkable. The second one wasn’t as bad but nearly. Good food but don’t...go for the coffee.More

Really disappointing experience tonight. After having been brought our wine quickly with great customer service, my friend and I waited nearly 1 1/4 hours for someone to come to take our food order. When my 250ml wine was gone and still noone had come out...to us, we decided to pay for our drinks and go somewhere else for dinner, as the place was very busy by this stage (7pm) and neither of us were interested in waiting another hour for food. Also, unfortunately, our two wines had been mixed up and my friend just couldn't drink any more of hers, but was made to pay $14.80 (full price) for it. We aren't planning on coming back anytime soonMore
