If you like hot coffee and friendly staff, this is the place to go. Quick stop in for takeaways, not overly busy for a Sunday morning so service was quick.

We had bacon sandwiches and a hokitika breakfast, all of which we’d recommend. The bacon sandwich was really yummy. Service was great, very friendly and helpful. Will visit again next time we pass through.

Only time for a quick stop for takeaway coffee when passing through Hokitika. Service was a little slow as we were a group of 6, but the cabinet food was delicious.

Situated out of the way, this is one NOT to miss when you’re visiting Hokitika. Extensive menu that covers Brunch, Lunch and Dinner. We visited for dinner and were stoked with what we ordered. There are so Any excellent options, we narrowed it down to...oven baked hoki served on pea purée and buttermilk soft shell tacos (which can also come as a blackened fish option). Both were outstanding. As there is ALWAYS room for pudding we shared the tiramisu which was delightful and accompanied by the most exquisite caraway seed biscotti. Tummy hug of a dinner all round.More

We enjoyed a family dinner. Generous portions of quality hearty food which was very well presented. My son and I agreed the ribs were outstanding. My wife loved the seafood chowder and my daughter enjoyed the fish n chips. We returned the next morning for...coffee and smoothies, and shared two delicious cheese scones. Looking forward to returning!More
