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.

I stepped in for a quick bite to eat and a coffee. The service was friendly the coffee good. The egs and bacon wasn't briljant however. It wasn't horrible but average at best (bacon could have been cooked much more), certainly not 17 dollars worth. Hence only the average rating.

A great cafe - I used to come here four years ago for a coffee when I travelled with work. It was great back then. Stopped in Geraldine for a coffee and was glad to see it was still here😉👌 great friendly service and very helpful. We requested our coffee as takeaway but then decided to share a lamington - it arrived split in half with cream on each piece! They went the extra mile! Well done country cafe 😉

Great for Gluten & Dairy Free! Stopped here on the way back to Christchurch. Bustling town with a local market on Saturday. We had coffees, pies and I got a delicious GF & DF egg & bacon muffin/pie. It was great. Definitely recommend for Gluten free with so many options!

Food was great, the poor lady working on her own this Sunday was RUNNING but still super friendly & efficient. The thing that annoyed us is the stuff everywhere for sale!! Plants & jewellery & just bits on every available surface plus extra tables of it, shelf in toilet entrance full of half dead cactus plants for sale. Soso tacky!! We didn't even see the Covid-19 sign in book at the door as it was surrounded by junk on the table. They need an identity overhaul. Again though the double down, the BLT, the coffee & the service was good.

Coffees for two served promptly. Food, corn fritters took 25 minutes. Drink finished before food arrived. Three - four staff working and a few customers wanting service but no lines of people waiting. Not a busy time for staff. Very slow service and food mediocre and stogy. We will not be returning to this cafe again.

We stopped in here on our way to Christchurch. I picked up the gluten free brownie, coconut lemon muffin and fruit cake. All were delicious. My daughter got the caramel slice and enjoyed it as well. Great to find a bakery that has such a wide selection of gluten free goods.

The food is okay, can be a bit hit or miss sometimes, some things are a bit generic. Their baking is pretty good.

So excited to find keto options & not have to adapt something on the menu to suit. Delicious too! LOVE that they've had a good clean up & not junky items for sale everywhere anymore as that really put us off coming here!! We'll be back.

Fruit cake with our tea and coffee break was delicious. Great service, comfortable, quirky ambience, a great place to stop on our journey from Mount Cook to Christchurch.

I had a flat white and veggie breakfast - anticipating a great feed and excellent barrista coffee, particular after my early start to get there. The coffee was weak and very disappointing, definitely not the quality I have enjoyed everywhere else in NZ. The breakfast was sad looking, poor presentation, boring and pretty tasteless. I had to add salt to everything to get any flavour. The hash brown was saturated in oil and the whites of the eggs undercooked.
