Sorry to say, not the best cafe experience. Nice decor and in a nice position next to the cinema., but, alas, really poor coffee, mostly due to the really careless presentation. Both our cups were well covered on the outside with dribbles and coffee splatter....The coffee itself was poor. both coffees seemed burnt. Our cake and slice also disappointing.More

We were visiting relatives in Gore and we went to The Green Room Cafe for our morning coffee and it was great. Would definitely recommend it. If you get a table by the window it makes for a great people watching spot too. Cabinet food...looked good.More

We popped in for a light lunch en route to Bluff. We shared a delicious chicken and brie filo wrap, which was melt in your mouth tasty and piping hot. Coffee was pretty good too! It is located beside the local movie theatre and they...share good toilets. A great choice in Gore.More

I've eaten in many cafes in my life and this one rated as the best for originality and variety of dishes. They put a twist on old faithfuls, like anzac flavoured biscuits glued together with chocolate ganache.You won't regret this visit.

Great cafe. Nice selection of food and my breakfast was fresh and simple but really well cooked. Quite possibly the best coffee in Southland.

This place opens at 6 am so it's good for an early start. Nice coffee and good simple choices for breakfast.
