We came here for breakfast. The view was lovely, the staff were friendly and accommodating for our 2yo, the food was great and the coffee was the best we've had in NZ so far.

We had breakfast at Mathesons Cafe this morning. The cafe itself is bright and modern with great views even on a rainy morning! The food and coffee were really nice too. Well worth the detour out of town.
