I first visited this cafe over 5 years ago. It still produces excellent coffee and has a great range of food. Nice ambience too.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Pancake rocks. The coffee was really good and arrived quickly and the food was nice but my sons sausage roll was heated in a microwave and was a bit soggy, but the food was very tasty with...a lovely sauce provided too. Very clean and clean bathroom on site which was good for us. Great place to fill up empty tummys when travelling. Has outside tables but it was too cold for us at this time of the year, but nice to have the option.More

I ordered a takeaway coffee. Noticed numerous signs about hygiene and Covid 19 practices and then noticed two large plates of muffins (uncovered) sitting on top of the showcase by the counter at head level of the customers, who would be able to breathe and...aspirate over the muffins (and anything else left uncovered) I mentioned this to a large older woman who appeared to be in charge, and she just smiled at me and ignored me. I certainly would NOT advise anyone to eat here unless they were unconcerned about the poor hygiene I witnessed. ALL food (if it is for sale) should be covered, as this practise is disgusting...More

We stopped in here for breakfast and ordered the Pancakes with Bananas and Bacon as well as the Brioche French Toast with Bananas and Bacon. Both dishes were very good and arrived quickly. The staff was very friendly and provided us with information on Shantytown...where we were heading after breakfast. You place your order at the counter and they will bring the food to your table.More

Stopped for coffee while awaited departure of our train to Christchurch. Had a flat white and a latte with a couple of delicious sweets.

Amazed by choice of “homemade” sandwiches etc, but sadly as it was just after breakfast, stuck to coffee which was good.

We stopped here before our train ride and enjoyed the food and drink. The cakes were delicious and fresh, the coffee was good and the fruit infused tea was nice. Everything was served nicely and the staff was friendly.

Nice place close to train station. With outside tables. Choice of sandwiches and coffee. Prices are okay. Service as well.

I went in here with a group. I can't speak for the others but I was a little disappointed. I had a ham sandwich. The bread was not fresh and was quite dry around the edges. I would suggest having things like sandwiches in a...refrigerated cabinet or having some sort of damp cover over them. The service was fine but (as a local) I would be reluctant to go here again.More

The service was quick and friendly but the menu is the standard bacon and eggs type of affair that you get from Robert Harris.
