Two of us called in for lunch. One had fish and chips,the other all day breakfast. Both meals were served quickly, both top quality. Coffee was the best we had on our holiday.Lots of locals calling in so that is a good sign.

We came here specially so we could have a whitebait sandwich (which we've had before) but they didn't have any. Still we had some tasty sandwiches

Gibby's is like a truck stop in the middle of town. Very busy but with good staff who seem to work at great speed. While we were there the place just kept pumping out food and drinks and everybody seemed quite happy. I do think...that this may be the most popular cafe in town. RecommendedMore

We were recommended Gibby's by the housemaid at our hotel, and it was easy to see why. Not only were the breakfast portions more than adequate, the service was second to none and everything was done with a smile. The food was so good here,...we went for breakfast 3 days running - along with (so it seemed) the rest of Westport! Highly recommended.More

We just wanted a quick bite and a cup of tea before hitting the road, and couldn't find anywhere open on a Sunday morning. This cafe was fairly busy but thought we would give it a try. We both ordered toasted sandwiches and a pot...of tea. The sandwiches were delicious, probably best we have had anywhere, lots of filling, hot and reasonably priced. The rest of the counter food looked very nice . Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely come here again.More

This place seemed to be popular with the locals so thought I’d stop by for brunch. I had an Eggs Benedict with spinach and mushrooms plus a long black. Both came out quickly and the service from all of the staff was nice and friendly....The food was for and tasty and at $17 it was good value. The only thing I would suggest to the kitchen is upgrading to some nice bread or something a bit more special than the little muffins that the eggs are served on at the moment. You could put the price up a couple of dollars and I’ve no doubt people would pay the extra. CheersMore

Good old Kiwi cafe, breakfast was spot on and coffee was good. The place was packed which is always a good sign, and they were open early (most of Westport was still closed) Massive selection of food and drink, service was fast and friendly.
