Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My one stop when traveling down south it's always perfect great selection of dining options from the menu or their well stocked food cabinet. My favorite the big breakfast 10/10 plus thanks to the lovely staff and management.

What a great place! Driving through to Queenstown early on a dark cold morning, saw the lights, in we went! It was warm, the welcome was too and the scones arrived out fresh from the oven. We ordered breakfast-delicious, used the very clean restrooms and...took scones away with us to munch on the journey. I consider this place a great find- a shame I live so far away!!More

We always stop here. I have never left a review before but today was exceptional. I had a date scone for breakfast and was disappointed when I finished it as it was the best date scone I had ever had. It was light and fluffy...with loads of dates. We will continue to visit here every time we travel through Timaru. Thank you for the great service. P.s. the staff were lovely also.More

The good: we didn't have to cook. The bad (s): No egg arrived with the BLT even though we ordered it. Was rectified easily though as it was still on the grill! The lemon meringue pie was powdery, had no lemon taste and the base...was way too thick to cut with the cake fork. The panko on the 3 cheese macaroni was untoasted. And the 'not even just OK" it is "The ugly: The raw chip included in the pile of undercooked chips included with the BLT!!More

Food was not really up to standard - stodgy and tasteless. Service - things came out late and had to be reminded for one item. Very disappointing, based on past experience - wont't be back!

A fixture on our trips from Chch to Dunedin. Easy parking, great toilets, large coffees, decent food and awesome staff - thank you for always being so welcoming, even 15 mins before closing.

Stopped for lunch. Disappointed to see unmasked people going up to the counter and getting served not even prompted to put on their mask like other places do. Got food from cabinet but nothing special about it. The panini wasn’t toasted very well and cut...badly which meant parts fell out. I think the muffin was a berry muffin not 100% sure because there was no berries in it, it was a bit dry & stodgy. However the bowl of fries and club sandwich were really good.More

Popped in for a quick breakfast with friends. Only one keto thing available which was disappointing so went with a side of bacon & a side of sausages.

First and last time having food here. Unfortunately they offered no vegan options I had to ask if the avo toast could be made. It came out and I was absolutely shocked as it was one sad looking piece of dry bread and avocado that...looked like it was from a tube with some raw spinach placed on top My mum had the lasagne and it had been microwaved - yet not properly as it was cold as tasteless. At least the coffee was extra hot per requestMore
