Friendly, efficient and fantastic food. Even though we got there only minutes from opening, staff were ready and pumped to help and please. Soy mocha and soy flat white were sensational.

Overnight stay in Franz Josef. Called in here day of arrival for late lunch coffee with Bagel and Slice. All great enough that we decided we'd call again before leaving the following day. Did so for mid-morning coffee with Muffin, and asked for a bacon...sandwich which they were absolutely happy to do - and at very fair price. Enjoyed as much as the day before. Unlikely to be on the West Coast again for a long time, but very happy to come back here if/when we are. Appears to be stop of choice for buses, which must also say something. Thoroughly recommended.More

This is top tourist country so it was great to find a place selling good food in a convivial atmosphere. You can sit outside and view the mountains or inside in the warm. I had a generous chicken wrap and wonderful cup of tea for...lunch. It was so good I went back for breakfast and it didn’t disappoint.More

We went there for hot chocolates only and staff were efficient and friendly. The drinks hit the spot for us.

Recommend the gorgeous oat milk coffee I had and a standard brekkie of eggs etc. The service was friendly and professional-cheerful despite the lack of tourists. Please travel around Nz people. It’s so rewarding.

Great little find in such a remote location, who’d have thought we’d find vegan food here! Great friendly welcome. The staff knew the food options and were very helpful and the food was good. Would recommend for vegans and vegetarians. Great spot.

We only went there for breakfast and lunch, what they are more known for. They list a closing time of 9pm, however as the others have answered it seems they close earlier than that. There are many great places for dinner... More
