we called into table talk on our way back from Te Anau for a quick bite to eat and a coffee , the food was great and so was our coffee and tea. The service was quick so didnt have to wait too long.

Gore sushi (real cheese rolls) .. they are amazing and toasted traditionally as they should only be. Keeping up the tradition of famous cheese rolls

On a 5 week road tour of NZ passed through Gore. Wanted a light lunch. It is what it is - a simple basic local cafe. Nothing fancy but perfectly okay for a quick bite and drink en route to next destination.

Extremely disappointed, took my grandfather out for his birthday lunch ordered a bowl of chips and got a measly little handful of chips... unsure how that’s supposed to feed 3 people so we can snack on the chips and there was 15 chips there (I...counted) other than that the food was mediocre.More

This cafe, situated in the main thoroughfare of Gore appeared well patronised when we visited with an extensive selection of cabinet food and a large range of choices on the blackboard menu. My wife and I had the blue cod served with chips and salad....We had ample sized servings. The fish fish was cooked adequately but rather uninspiring. Some of the cutlery on our table was not totally clean. This place may be a good stop for those seeking a traditional muffin, scone or sandwich. It appears that they are baked on the premises. However, as visitors passing through the lower South Island and keen to sample some local fare, we were a little disappointed in the quality of our seafood brunch.More

I popped in for a bite with a group of about 10 friends. We all ordered different items from the menu and selected from the cabinet food as well. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly to our aged diners. The food arrived at our...table hot and tasty. We will be back.More
