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.

We go here time and again as they do great coffee and lovely cabinet food. But it is their lamb shoulder pie that I need to rave to you about - a serious rival to other pies in the South Island. For only $10 I...got the most delicious, packed full of melt in the mouth lamb perfection AND a beautiful side salad. Amazing!More

This place is spotlessly clean and spacious, with seating both indoor and out. Service was amazingly friendly and efficient. As for the real reason we visited, the coffee and chai were very good, while the food was more than tasty, with portion sizes above what...would normally be found in similar cafes. Overall, the bakery deserves maximum marks and we are more than likely to make a return visit in the not-too-distant future.More

Great bakery and coffee shop. We were so happy that something in town was open. We loved the coffee and we loved our scones. It was sparkling clean and staff were amazingly happy and friendly. What's not to love!

On a return visit to Waimate we just had to go and indulge again, over several days we tried various pies, loved the coffee and treated with the ginger kisses of a huge size. Spacious, buzzing, indoor and outdoor options, what an amazing set up...and he prices are just as much to die for as the food is. When a certain pork pie was not available, we queried with our waiter if they would be available later .... 5 minutes only later one was delivered to our table. We hadn't paid and were just querying if it was possible - what service, so quickly did so as really appreciated this extra service.More

We stopped here for afternoon tea on a drive from Chrischurch to Dunedin. Waimate is a lovely little town just a few Km off the highway, well worth a short detour. The bakery had an interesting range of products-I had a piece of Rocky Road,...which was great. The slice was massive-I took half of it away to eat later. There was plenty of space in the bakery to eat our snacks and enjoy a break from driving. Strongly recommended.More

While in Waimate for 2 days we ate here twice. The pies are full of meat and are very tasty and the hot coffee was great. I had the chicken, bacon and mushroom pie and hubby had the BBQ pork. A lot of the food...including their own baked bread are oversized, the muffins are huge. The next day we had the big breakfast $25 and the garden breakfast $21. I couldn’t eat all of mine, the plate was so full. We both recommend this place for value for money and tasty food.More

An excellent bakery situated in the heart of Waimate. Whether you’re grabbing something for lunch or keen to stop and try something off their menu - there are plentiful options to cover every alternative. The cabinet food is mouthwatering and exceptionally reasonably priced. The brunch...menu has all the usual favourites. There is a range of indoor and outdoor seating and out the back in the wee courtyard there is a playground for the small people. This is a wonderful place to stop for some kai 😊 on a side note, the team here are very attentive to fur babies, providing dog bowls upon request and the staff are super friendly with the humans and animals alike.More
