Place has a very friendly atmosphere and the most superb toasted sandwiches ever. The staff were most accommodating and helpful. We loved the place so much we returned for a second visit during our short stay in Greymouth.

Great Place! Beautiful kiwi staff. I was short $2 to pay for my lunch so one of the kind staff took $2 from the ‘Tip’ jar to pay for the shortfall. Needed something healthy to eat - great salads!!
