A simple lunch or early afternoon tea. Toasted cheese roll and a Louise cake. Didn't feel like coffee so just had a glass of water. Efficient staff and clean toilets.

Nice people, tasty juices. But the pancakes were a bit too sweet for our taste, and drowned in the compote. Not sure about the other food on offer.More
Thankyou for taking the time to write a review about Steam. Yes the pancakes are sweet. Blueberries and maple syrup and icing sugar all make for sweetness. One of our most popular breakfast. Try our croissants or ciabatta with bacon scrambled eggs and tomatoes or...More
Although the coffee in our cappuccino was good and strong, it was not made correctly. There was barely any foam and we've had flat whites with more foam than this had.
Thankyou for for taking the time to write about the coffee at Steam. Next time you are passing, pop in and make yourself known and we will make you another on the house. Pleased that you found the coffee nice and strong.

Steam was recommended but was so disappointing. We had limited time. We ordered 2 double shots and sat down. 15 minutes later no coffee and we noticed that take away orders were being served immediately. I asked for mine to be transferred to a takeaway...More

Every time we visit Oamaru we always drop into Steam Cafe for the iced chocolates - the kids and I are never disappointed. The other huge benefit is the range of gluten free food - there is always at least one savoury and two sweet...More
