Was looking for a quick breakfast bite and a light meal. Came in but had no kitchen so it was muffins. Bagels and cerals. Not too bad at all in the end. Coffee was great and all in American sizes!! Ceral was grand and tastey but lacked a little in size. Great for a quick bite and good coffee. Priced... More

On a wet day we found ourselves seeking refuge for a coffee and something to eat. There was plenty to choose from and it all looked appetizing. You could have sweet or savoury food. The coffee was hot and I could have chosen several different sizes. Staff are excellent. The café itself is comfortable and modern. It was a great... More

Believe it or not, I'd never had a frappe before, but my wife had had one here previously, so I was brave and tried it on a hot afternoon. In a word, it was fantastic. Espresso. So fresh, I could taste the grains of the ground coffee beans that formed the main part and gave it its guts and full... More

We were on a tour of the South Island staying over in Timaru. Stumbled across coffee culture looking for breakfast. Really pleased we stopped here. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a super breakfast and excellent coffee. Lovely atmosphere. 100% recommend.

Great coffee, great service, the cakes are to die for, and I love how late they are open! Come here every Wednesday night with my friends for cake, I know I'm bad but we can't help it! Their Chocolate Chi Latte is my favorite thing on the menu! Good location, with lots of seating and a kids area!
