The chef told us we could get a half portion of soup for one of our guests however when we went up to order the manager refused, was really rude and charged us the full price (going against what her staff previously told us).

My wife could not believe the fantastic Salmon eggs benedict. I has the usual bacon and eggs really good. We both agreed the best cafe breakfast we had in New Zealand. A must at Tekapo.

The pancakes were dripping and the bacon was rich. The kitchen was working overtime to pump out fast but good meals The great Deli choice made the locals and tourists alike line up for their morning coffee and supplies.

Stopped for brunch on our way to Hanmer Springs. Great coffee. Awesome food - great pies from Fairlie Bakery. Had great vegetarian pie. Brilliant. Great service too. Though seating is a bit limited, the food is worth it.

Popped in on a very chilly day and were surprised by the delicious seafood chowder accompanied by lightly toasted ciabatta.

A very nice breakfast indeed and with great coffee..can't ask for anything more! With tables outside it even facilitates those who want a smoke. Service was quick and friendly. This place is popular but you shouldnt wait too long if there are no tables at the time.

Thank friedlock
