Always has great coffee . Best place in Twizel. Also make a good date scone. Slices look good but haven’t tried them as not much of a sweet tooth.

Very good hot coffee and real date scones. Nice vibe, friendly staff. Excellent starting point for lakes and mountains on way to Tekapo and Mt Cook Aoraki.

Obviously a local favourite and extra points for the adjacent bookstore. Good hot chocolate on a cold morning, appealing cabinet food although the staff looked a little under pressure - it can't be easy operating city-style fare in a village like Twizel. Good refuelling stop.
