$10 for a breakfast what a pleasure and friendly staff. I did notice 2 guys eating their breakfast outside and for some reason both got up to get something out of their car and a seagull stole their toast so beware eating outside can have some problems.Thanks guys see you again.

Always friendly, welcoming staff, great food, extensive menu choices, plenty of dining space, and a couple of lovely soft settees where you can sit and sip coffee, watching the day go by or read the paper or magazines. It is situated on Beach Road, which is the main route through Kaikoura on the Northern end of town. It also has... More

We were wandering around Kaikoura looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled upon the Kaikoura Food company. It looked really inviting so we went in and our minds were blown by the amount of choices of fudge there was available! We treated ourselves to some fudge and had a coffee each. It was delicious and we stayed here a while,... More

Have been here a few times now. Good service, my husband really enjoyed his wedges, and my BLT was pretty good too, although I would have preferred the chips a little more crunchy. Cafe is clean and inviting, with outside seating available.

We went in a few times during our stay in Kaikoura. The food (we had the wedges with sour cream and the venison burger) were both excellent. The beetroot relish in the burgers worked very well. They also do excellent iced chocolate and will do hot fudge chocolate on request. The fudge is delicious with a good range of flavours... More

I had a nice quick lunch here. Soup was great, with fantastic bread. Would visit again to try other options. Very quiet mid week so a good option for those that prefer to eat in peace without much noise.

We visited for breakfast with two small children. The staff welcomed us and quickly found a toy box and a high chair. We ordered and the thoughtful waitress brought my 2 year old a warm choc in a takeaway cup with a straw, perfect. The eggs benedict was as good as any I've had, and my partners omelette was good....
