We are visiting friends who live on a 'lifestyle' farm outside of Martinborough and had a late lunch at the Village Cafe. The soup was fresh and filling, and the smoked salmon sandwich was excellent. This casual bakery does a great job all around!

Ate lunch here on two days. The food is good and prepared well. You can have a half portion if you have a smaller appetite. Prices good for where it is in Martinborough. Staff friendly.

We were on a tour of the Martinborough vineyards with Silver Cloud Luxury Tours and took a break for coffee at the Village Cafe.

Service wasn't that great and the coffee was gross. Couldn't even finish it. Would not go back again.

We ate here on our one night stay. Food choice was reasonable without being exciting. Prices were in keeping with the country, i.e. slightly higher than you'd expect for similar in the UK. However, the food was well cooked and tasty, and there was nothing left on our plates.

Cup of coffee and scone along with 10 & 12yo and their fruit smoothies. The Wine Centre Cafe still has it with a great atmosphere and a fantastic array of food to boot. Superb staff on all fronts, very welcoming and very obliging. Good coffee and very relaxing.

Had lunch here before seeing UB40 gig. Asked for corned beef hash, and had an amazing meal. We all enjoyed the food.

We first went to the wine center located there and got some information about the different vineyards in the area. We also had the chance to taste some special wine, the tasting was offered directly in the shop (if you ever have the chance to taste the Big Sky wine, do it!). We then went to some wine tasting.
