We have taken to stopping off at the Geraldine Orchard Farmshop & Cafe whenever heading south from Christchurch because of great service, good coffee and quality food.Last week end was the same - stop over for a great coffee and a yummy hot cheese scone straight out of the oven - all delivered with great service.

Returning the next day and what a difference a day can make. A different crew on this time, order placed for just coffees, the staff were more focused arguing with each other than making a coffee, two of them got involved in making it.

When we received them you could tell one cup was full the other half empty. One of them tasted like hot water with a bit of coffee flavoring - an insult to even call it a coffee. Ended up being tipped out.

Will not let this one off instance change my thoughts of this establishment. A pity that two staff can ruin in matter of minutes the great experience we have come to expect from this cafe.

We stopped for some lunch and really enjoyed it. The farm shop is also great and lots of local art for sale if that’s your thing. We also played a bit of soccer golf. Nice couple of hours spent. Thanks.

Enjoyed our first visit so we came back the next day for more. Basic food but all was tasty and the servings are of food size.

Slightly overpriced here if your just wanting something basic. Ordered small pie sized quiche, which arrived on plate heated with NO sauce of any kind? Just a dry quiche. Thought about asking for some sort of sauce (considering the vege place sells a selection of sauces, assumed they would use them with their meals). Thank goodness I purchased a takeaway coffee as i wrapped up the quiche in paper towel and left. Wont return.

Popped in here on our way from Christchurch to Aoraki. A welcome sight when you are desperate for coffee and cake. Plenty of farm produce to choose from also if you want some fruit/veg to help you on your way. Pleasant seating areas to one side also. Friendly staff.
