We arrived just on lunch time but really fancied the scrambled eggs that were on for breakfast which had finished. They were busy but we asked if we could still have them and the chef was great and cooked them for us. I think I...make nice scrambled eggs, but these were the nicest we have ever tasted. The staff were very nice and the atmosphere was good. We would go again next time we are in Hokitika.More

Just dropped in for breakfast - and loved it. Good people, food and coffee. Thanks to all for a friendly welcome to the Coast. Over two days we had muesli - Eggs Benedict (which was good) and a Bacon "buttie" If you want an easy...good break fast - this is the place to come.More

We first visited in June 2017. It was excellent then and it is excellent now. We went for breakfast for two mornings. Very good coffee. The cabinet food was fresh and tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful. We understand Stella is now open for...dinner and by all accounts is great. Unfortunately we didn’t know till later. Never mind - next time.More

So this is one the (few) best cafes in town....We had the ginger granola parfait which was gorgeous but it really was in a parfait glass and v difficult to eat. Please the Dutch the parfait glass. Also the peaches were probably out of a...can.....The Scrambled eggs was served on bread that was undercooked and doughy but the eggs were over cooked and tough. I thought the cafe was cold but maybe I’m a soft north island person. BUT the coffee was just excellent and we thanked the lovely barista. He was working his butt off. The real reason for average review was the loo. The babies changing table was just ugh.... when was it last cleaned Fien and the cover changed?? and I don’t have a baby... there was thick dust on the door and pooh around the toilet rim. Double ugh! This is unacceptable.More

Good experience. Came in for breakfast on Thursday morning with the family. Partner and I had the protein breakfast special which was delish and good value for money. They made a kids portion of hot cakes for our 4 year old. The coffee was exceptional...- it was perfect temperature and texture (being silky and skullable) and the taste was great (underground beans). The staff were patient, polite, and helpful. The barista was extra kind to our son.More

Dinner at Stella was great. My husband had the ribs and I had the halloumi salad. They were both delicious! And the creme brûlée was to die for. Overall great food and service. Lucas was our waiter, his service was a 10/10

Yes absolutely we do. Our Smokey Mushrooms (minus the ciabatta) is a fav! Especially if you add some bacon. ☆☆☆
