Nice food, but nothing stand out. The fish and chips, pies and nachos were fine. Price was average for cafes in the area.

Few cafes appear open on Monday in Kaikoura town centre but this one was. Surprising to see staff helping themselves to coffee more than actually making them for customers - maybe we just visited at official 'smoko time'. Appears to be largely staffed by visitors to NZ so great if English is your second language but not so good for actually meeting friendly 'locals'. Beware pies are soggy - suspect microwave heated then placed in warmer over actually oven heated or freshly baked. Overall OK - probably won't rush back.

We enjoyed our lunch at this cafe. The food was good and not overpriced. The cafe was warm and the staff were very friendly.

Perfect for a quick stop here whilst travelling up or down the coast. Good customer service, lots of food choices, eat in or takeaway, and very nice, strong coffee.
