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.

Worst service and rudest staff i have ever encountered. No greeting when we walked in and the when we were ordering it was like we were bothering them. Wish i walked straight out. Would not recommend.

What a gem, great food and great service on the track back to Queenstown. Relaxing vibe inside and good service with a smile makes the world of difference. A must stop.

All of the Te Anau coffee shops were crazy busy so we hit the road looking for something on the way back to Queenstown. We stopped at this café on the way. What a great find. Excellent coffee. A wide assortment of breakfast and lunch...sandwiches, and baked goods. A great stop. We highly recommendMore

There is not a lot of choice of eateries but luckily this one was excellent. We had a delicious breakfast here on 2 mornings. Coffee was very good. Great service, although they were very busy they still managed to serve us promptly and efficiently. I...definitely recommend this cafe.More

Dropped in for a large flat white. What arrived was luke warm, with too much milk and little coffee. Didn't finish it, why compound the disappointment

Not a lot of choice in these parts . The cabinet food was a mixed bag of pretty average looking savoury stuff with some reasonable looking cakes etc so we ordered cheese and tomato toasted sandwiches . These were a gluggy concoction of what looked...like gruyere with the tomato . It could of been good but someone in the kitchen should note that "less is more "and dial it back. No need for butter smeared on the outside . Definitely the worst toasted sandwich I have ever eaten which is a pity as it had all the ingredients , just badly constructed. They looked like they are trying hard and some of their stuff looks OK but overall it looks like they don't really get it . OK a cross roads Cafe in Mossman is probably not going to be Sand Fly Cafe in Te Anau or Greedy Cow in Tekapo but maybe a visit there will show what can be doneMore

Stopped by here for a coffee while driving from Te Anau to Queenstown. Service and coffee were exceptional. Had a carrot muffin which didn't disappoint and the food selection looked fantastic. Will definitely be back next time we're in Northern Southland..
