Maybe it was just a bad day for the chef but food was not as exciting as the last time I was there. I know it is hard to please everybody's tastes. Good but not great.

This is a nice place to stop just to see the colour of the water! They offer Shotover Jet Boat rides (which we didn't do) but looked like fun. Usual type of cafe offerings with pretty good hot chocolates, not bad but not amazing food....More

We had limited time and needed some where to grab a bite to eat. We came over before our jet boating tour and they had a nice selection to choose from.

Two of us ordered scotch eggs, we cut them open and the sausage meat was raw, we returned them to the counter and chose a quiche and sausage roll as substitute, but didn't eat all the sausage roll as the sausage meat also looked undercooked....More

Just your standard cafe, with the usual cabinet food plus a few things like soup and pasta made to order. Generally clean and decent. Toilets are a complete mess though as they look like they are shared with some tourism activities.More

Hi RealReviewsNZ, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I do not think you read our menu, as there is definitely much more than just 'soup' and 'pasta' freshly cooked to order. For example, nachos, fish & chips, burgers, toasted sandwiches, cooked breakfasts,...More
