Friendly staff and good service overall, everyone seemed happy and the food came out quickly. I ordered the vegan breakfast and it was exactly as stated on the menu; it was tasty, fresh and hot. Only thing is lacked was a bit of sauce, as...a meal it was a little dry but would be easily remedied with a side of relish or hollandaise! The long black was perfectly madeMore

We were a bit reluctant to go into this cafe as it didn't have an appealing look. We did and we weren't sorry. The coffee was excellent and so was the biscuits.

We had looked online for somewhere in Westport to go to for breakfast. There were mixed reviews for most places but this is one I would definitely cross off the list. Coffee was from Sublime in Nelson so the expectation was good but the delivery...was disappointing. The pancakes were not light and fluffy, more heavy and stodgy and covered in icing sugar which was most unwelcome. The unadorned food should speak for itself if it is good enough. The tables were sticky. I think they are always sticky due to the old wooden tops rather than a lack of cleanliness. The staff were pleasant and other than the sticky tables the cafe was clean but these would be the only good points. Go somewhere else....better still keep driving to Murchison where you are spoilt for choice.More

After a long ride we were desperate for a cup of coffee. Very quick service coffee came very quickly and it was delicious. We also had an brownie in a mint slice gluten-free was also very delicious. Next time we are definitely going to stop...here again.More

Stopped at J's for a quick lunch. Great toasted sandwich with curly fries, tasty filo for my wife and nice sublime flat whites for us both. Food was very good, price reasonable, staff friendly. Overall an excellent lunch.
