The owners are very lovely friendly down-to -earth people, the food was simply delicious, and the coffee was the best. It is no surprise it comes up on Google as No.1 of the 10 best cafes in Westport. My scrambled eggs were so delicious, the...slices we had were top quality perfection, and the coffee was some of the best we have ever hard.More

Formidable German cuisine served with a smile. Stunning selection of mains & cakes with strong coffee to accompany. Welcoming, family-friendly ambience. Especially cozy on a rainy day. Clean facilities. Don't miss this eatery in Westport.

Called for morning tea - got caught up in the cabinet food - decided on the fruit hot cross bun (delicious). One of our party had a berliner (like a donut) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice clean and tidy premises - worth a stop

What a find. Kathrin’s is a little cafe run by a charming German. The food is simply delicious. We had the vegetable soup which came with homemade Bavarian rolls. Delicious cakes, superb coffee. Highly highly recommended.

We were there after a recommendation! It was really nice there friendly stuff and delicious food. We enjoyed the Currywurst with French fries, I think it is one of the best Currywurst in New Zealand ! If you are in Westport just stop bye and...if you don’t have enough time just take a Berliner they also pretty good! If I am the next time in Westport I will come back !!More

The food was a notch up from cafe/diner brunch. There are so many 5 star reviews that it didn’t meet my expectations. Coffee quite bitter and barista doesn’t know how to make a flat white. Bacon was so salty, it was nearly inedible. Maybe someone...called out sick today and it is better on other day. Pretzel bun was good.More

Thanks, this is German bacon.. Often I watch customer adding salt and pepper on our food before they even try. All our meals are spiced.

Decent enough. The chap behind the counter was a bit surly but they seemed a bit busy. Food was good, even if it took a while to be served.
