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.

Came down to Cromwell for a Harley Rally and we chose Forage for breakfast both mornings. They opened at 7am which was ideal for us to get in, eat and still have time to gear up and get on the road early without having to rush. I had Blueberry pancakes and they were perfect. My partner had the big breakfast and it was too big for him (read, great value) the next morning he had scrambled eggs and said they were really nice. On all occasions we got coffee we were thankfully not dissapointed. Members of our group all agreed that the food was very good. The cafe itself is beautifully presented, light and airy and modern yet comfortable. Would definitely come back if I were passing thru.

coffee and late lunch visit. I think the lunch menu finishes around 2pm. Great place to go if you are wanting to book tours or bike rides, information about what to do while in Cromwell. Easy to find.

Great for a meet up for lunch or just coffee with a friend because there is plenty of space . This may change when the bike shop is up and running. Great food, nice staff and pleasant ambience

I was looking for a quick lunch before driving on. The cafe was almost empty at 1.15pm by 1.30 potential customers were told the cafe was closing and the kitchen was closed. I asked for Eggs Benedict minus the included bacon. The price remained the same. When it arrived the bed of wilted spinach was 5 leaves between both eggs, there was an unwelcome squiggle of balsamic? poured through the hollandaise sauce and both eggs were undercooked with semi liquid white pouring over the nicely browned potato rosti. Disappointing.

Amazing, both staff greeted us as we walked in and a great choice of both cabinet food and breakfast menu. Coffee came out piping hot and food followed quickly and was delicious. Spent time talking with one staff member who was lovely, telling us about a few changes that had happened in cromwell since our last visit. Will defiantly recommend and come back, thanks for starting my day off well, great service here, best we have had in this area. .

Severe lack of any service in the cafe. Tables not clean, even asked for a cloth to wipe down the table, nope. Waited 30 minutes for coffee that came out cold. Staff seem disinterested. Other tables waiting for cutlery that just never arrived and cabinet food coming out after kitchen food. Locals giving it a try again after bad service previously. Nothing has changed and no it was not busy.

BEST savoury Scone in the Country!!! Absolutely delicious. I walked out with 1 and had to send husband in to get his own - no way was I sharing this scone 😬 worth a flight down from Auckland 🤩 Lovely warm cafe, friendly staff and good coffee…. All the food looks good but that scone 🤩😋 yummmm

Staying on site, Forage Cafe was so convenient, but quickly became my cafe of choice for breakfast and lunch, eating in or taking it on the road. Great range of food, friendly staff and information onsite, fantastic way to start and prepare for the day!

Had the big breakfast, wasn't disappointed. Excellent variety, tasty and well presented. Coffee was great too. This is our second visit and well worth stopping in if you are passing.
