An amazing place to have lunch and coffee with a wide variety of food on offer. Blown away by the pork ball in a roti combination. Worth a visit over and over again.

Cafe appeared so clean and upmarket on 6th March 2018. A cool day so accepted the offer of Chicken and Corn soup, served in a takeaway cup, followed by black coffee. I felt unwell before leaving, but recovered with plenty of bottled water. However my...husband (75) was very ill just 4 hours later when we arrived at our next destination of Moeraki, with severe vomiting and diarrhoea night and day. Our 2 nights in a classy Moeraki motel was an awful experience, with food poisoning costing $46.90! Phoned and "Manager" could not believe illness from her chicken soup, which she made herself, and she enjoyed a serving both on the day of making AND the following day! I guess that's where the problem arose - I would never make chicken soup last 2 days. She claimed that nobody else had complained, so couldn't believe us.More

We stopped off in Gore for coffee. Walking past we caught sight of One Chef Kitchen. We only meant to get coffee but the food looked so delicious we decided to have a picnic lunch. We were talked through the options by the jolly server...and left with salmon fritta with smoked garlic aioli , courgette fritters and orzo salad. We were talked into a custard tart for dessert, having been told it was divine. And it as, all of it. The food plus the super-friendly staff made it a stand-out place.More

This new cafe in Gore offers a good choice of lunch options and also does outside catering. A specials board is offered each day and the staff are friendly and pleasant.

Very friendly people serving great coffee and a great takeaway lunch. Food really fresh and made right there. Worth the little bit extra in cost.

Stopped on the off chance they had something Gluten Free. They only had 2 things, I got both. The Bacon, Egg, Hashbrown slice was amazing and Pumpkin Salad was nice. The coffee was pretty good too. Oh and they provide containers to go.

These guys tick all the boxes for fresh food and lovely coffee. ROAR coffee that is made well and at a reasonable price. The fresh baking and food in this place is always changing so you never get sick of it. If you are wanting...the best seafood chowder they also have this.More
