I popped in for a coffee and ended up eating as well. Great food, fantastic environment. Such great staff they also found my wallet I had left behind, and via a connection with the police they couriered it back to me. Really made my holiday...- thank you so much. Your decency is so appreciated.More

The Slam club was recommended by my son. Didnt think I was hungry on arrival and when the pulled pork sandwich arrived decided I was only going to eat half but soon changed my mind. It was outstanding and highly recommend

Ordered our food and hot drinks. Drinks came first and were fine - but the food took some time to arrive - reasonably busy but we didn't mind the delay - we're retired so we don't do rush. When it arrived there was plenty of...food - it was actually a bit of a struggle to get through it all - but very tasty. The decor is rustic and no fuss. I quite liked the place and would certainly go againMore

I do not even know where to start. These sandwiches were absolutely mindblowing. We got the slow cooked wild goat with caramelized onion and then a shredded hoisin duck with pickled slaw. I started off eating the goat and was blown away by how delicious...it was, so full of flavour all balanced perfectly and beautifully crispy ciabatta bread. I didnt think it could get any better and then I tasted the duck... my other sock got blown off with this one. Again, perfectly balanced between sweet hoisin duck and the crispy slaw. The bread again was crispy but not so much that you couldn't chew it. I suggest coming in pairs and share so you can try each one, or just come multiple times... either way work through the menu because you wont be disappointed. The staff were also very friendly and they had delicious coffee too! Win win.More

Great salad and sandwich. It is definitely worthy a stop for lunch. The bread was so fresh. I am so surprised that I missed it before.

Our 4th try at good coffee in Kaikoura, and it came up trumps! We wished we'd not already breakfasted, as the food looked great. Cool interior design..

My son had an excellent vegan meal here. The rest of us had excellent meals, too. Nice place to relax.

I had the El Gringo and it was one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had! Soft bread, nice melted cheese, tender pulled pork and delicious sauce. Despite the unexpected coriander (**pro tip - ask for without if you don’t like it!**) I can still...maintain it was one of the best! A big call. Defs worth a stop! Thanks guysMore

Entered the place without knowing how awesome it was! Service was great, quick, efficient! The breakfast was truly AMAZING, coffee was good, and the whole place is quirky and has a nice vibe. I live in Blenheim and wish we had a place like this,...too! Shall I move to Kaikoura???More
