Awesome place to eat with great menu and cabinet food. Best coffee in Oamaru! Super friendly staff and perfectly located for exploring the old town.

This is in the white stone Victorian part of town. It was a cloudy and miserable day when we were there so the soup for lunch was a welcome warmer. Came with some bread and butter and the coffee was good too.

Had lunch with the family - loved the seafood chowder, the chicken burger and the pancake. Pleasant decor and vibes, friendly service and good variety. Good prices.

Havent been here for ages, unsure whats changed but 3 of us had very disappointing food. The wedges and cheeses dish had minimal flavour, the chicken filo roll was flattened in a sandwich press by the look of its shape and was overcooked and hard...and the fried chicken dumplings were poorly presented and hard dry and overcooked. We waited a long time for the coffees which arrived well before the food and just one at a time. The food took an age. There were a lfew people in and out, although the place wasnt that busy that it could be a reason for slow service. This cafe needs serious help.More

Oamaru was such a delightful visual treat. We headed toward the Waterfront Precinct parked and walked through the most amazing Oamaru stone buildings and shops, arts and cafes. We decided on Casa Mia, not disappointed. Super friendly lady with purple hair serving. Food was large...and tasty. We'll worth the stop.More

OMG when I half finished my orange cake, I turned it over and it was THICK with mould. Revolting. Called the lovely lady over and she refunded us for only that cake.

We stayed over in Oamaru in a place that didn’t offer breakfast and my hubby found this place online. I was a bit dubious about the “best breakfast in Oamaru”, but wow, it really is. Place has a lovely atmosphere, it was really busy before...9am, so obviously a favourite spot for a lot of people. Girl behind the counter was pleasant. The freshly baked cakes, slices, muffins and quiches in the cabinet looked amazing and then our food arrived!!!!! Huge portion sizes and cooked to perfection. My husband had the Big Breakfast and yes it was VERY BIG and beautifully presented. I had poached eggs with tomato and mushrooms with toast. DEFINITELY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED- we will definitely be back when passing through in future and we are just going to get a takeaway sweet slice before leaving for our trip to Dunedin. Well done guys, keep it up, you’re a rare find.... fantastic service and Food with big enough portion sizes That you don’t have to call in at the nearest chippie to top up after paying a fortune for a meal. LOVED IT!!!!More

Stopped in to this lovely cafe for breakfast. Had the avo and feta with bacon, and eggs benedict both of which were amazing and very generous sizes.

I have been in Oamaru for a year, walked past this cafe many times. I should have gone in a year ago. The food looks amazing, the cakes and squares are a really decent size. Brought a Lemon and poppy seed muffin. It was huge...and I would say one of the best muffins I have ever had. The service was really good too. This will be my go to cafe for cakes from now on and the other cabinet food looked amazing so likely more than cake. They are open 7 days a week.More
