We had a very nice breakfast at Snake Bite. We had delicious Eggs Benedict (gluten free option) and a tasty coffee (dairy free). I would recommend it for sure!

Love their burger Kiwi as Grilled! We actually came here twice because the burger and the patty are delicious. My boyfriend loves the New Zealand beer that they have too!
