Some people write unhelpful reviews. Half hour wait over NY is not a big deal! Sheesh. Anyway, just stopped in. Great service and great food. Shared F&C and it was plenty for 2 people. Would def recommend

After a long day in the saddle, this was a welcome sight, and just what we needed. Friendly staff, cold beer and wonderful cheese scone.

Look my review isn't really about the food, as we had none! Called in just after New Year's - which may the reason why - but they were so busy we were told it's a half hour wait for food. So we left.

We stopped here for a break going between Christchurch and Nelson/Motueka. The cafe sits at the intersection of both roads which lead to Motueka or Nelson and the road from Lewis Pass. It's not as crowded as Murchison and is about an 50 minutes to...More
