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.

We visited a few times as it’s right by the supermarket. The food from the cabinet was delicious we had a few vegetarian things and a salad, everything we tried was great. The drinks were good but they often took a bit of a while....Internet is free with a password.More

Had a nice breakfast here this morning with the family, was nice to get out of the weekend busyness of Queenstown and be able to sit and have a relaxing brunch. Kids bacon and eggs is decent sized and the eggs bene was delicious but...definitely needed the hash browns. Chai was average but apparently the mocha and coffees are greatMore

Food options are all from the counter, so toast or reheat, coffee could be hotter!. Note please ... I know my ESPRESSO coffee somehow creates a problem for Baristas BUT could you please first heat the cup. Its a very quick drink if I have...to quickly scoff to ensure it is warm. Just saying.More

This place was awesome. Staff were friendly. Very covid conscious. Our order was muddled up and the staff were so accommodating and kind. Great portion sizes and very reasonable prices. Great coffee too. Thank you!

Usually one of my favourite places for brunch/lunch when visiting the are for work. Ordered a Chicken Chimichanga from the cabinet today, along with coffee and a cinnamon scroll. The latter two items were great, not so much the Chicken Chimichanga. I couldn’t eat it,...and I love Mexican inspired dishes. This was simply awful. Bland, runny and with an awful taste of overripe avocado and overcooked diced tomatoes in the mixture that tainted the filling when the dish was heated. No salsa, sour cream or guacamole to accompany, no Mexican flavours, and just 3 blobs of tomato sauce on the plate. Yuk. Not impressed today I’m sorry to say.More

Popped in just after 3:30 for a cuppa and to chat... 3:40 pm the vacuum was started up. This is really not very social and atmosphere lacks with the hum of a vacuum cleaner constantly in one's ears... Coffee was good but cake possibly old....Not quite as good as I expected.More

Quick brekkie on way to airport. Nice stong coffee - good quality and just right to start the day. Cinnamon scrolls taste home made in a good way. Hot chocolate enjoyed by teenager. Happy with our decision to come here.

Went there for my breakfast with my mate last week. Their service for our first order was very slow and my coffee arrived after my breakfast was half done on a takeaway cup even though we were dining in at the venue and we ordered...a dish when the wait staff came with the coffee. We waited for our order for more than 25 minutes and then went to ask about our order their reply was “you are at the restaurant it takes time you don’t get your food in 5 minutes we are busy” such a nice customer service very pleased with your service and never visiting again Food was great thanks to chef.More
