Whilst Bluff is rightly call the bum of the world, there is not much there at all. This place is pretty much a disgrace to the good produce that you can get in Southland. It would be better to get a frozen pie and heat...it in the micro than get food from here.More

Went in here to order some hot chips for lunch with the kids. We got $5 as we thought being a tourist place servings were likely to be smaller than normal. Sorely disappointed however, $5 chips was probably the same amount as a pottle of...chips from the night & day. Basically a handful at best. Would definitely not go back & so annoyed that our lunch was ruined due to this pathetic amount of food.More

Was difficult to customise a burger we ordered, the pork sausage was very dry and tasteless, the chicken and corn soup was watery and the fried rice was too salty. There is no credit card or pay pass option - there is an ATM at...the supermarket next door but it doesn’t do international transactions.More

... But at least it was open. Not much is available in Bluff in winter! As we were in bluff we had to have an oyster pie but sadly this was disappointing. At twice the price of the other pies this was unfortunate!Coffee was good...thoughMore

If you want undercooked eggs, and overpriced food head to Stella's. The coffee is good, but the lack of free condiments is a big disappointment.

I didn’t realise Asian & Chinese food was available in Bluff, my husband and I stopped in when our usual cafe was closed. I tried a chilli & garlic stir fry vegetables dish & hubby went for Bami Goreng, both were packed with flavour and...the coffee was pretty good too.More

This used to be a great little cafe & takeout, but over-priced, stale and over-cooked food does not make a pleasant experience. Staff not friendly to hear problems of any sort, pretend they do not speak English at times. Great for a Tea or Coffee,...but nothing much else, try elsewhere.More

The only place to get a meal on a cold April night and very good it was too.We had Chinese takeaways to eat back at our (cold) hotel.Its quite a cute shop and would be fun to eat in the booths they have.

We tried a nearby cafe but it had a 20 minute plus waiting time for service. And so we went to Stellas for a light lunch. My wife had two sausage rolls and I had an excellent mince pie. The staff were capable and we...departed replete.More
