Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Good bakery/cafe being spoilt by a 2.5% surcharge for all cards to include basic eftpos which I thought the banks don’t charge for compared to smart pay or payWave/credit cards, correct me if I’m wrong. No wander places are shutting up shop as people are...going cashless and being penalised for this by these high surcharges that these businesses are gaining as profit.More

Great coffee, baked goods (lamington, muffin and scone were delicious) with friendly service. Recommend as a re-fuel stop before or after a hike!

Yummy food at a good price with friendly service and peaceful environment. We had a really enjoyable brunch and were quite surprised with the amazing soup of the day (made fresh) and coffees. My daughter a bit fussy kid loved her chicken nuggets. Somehow this...place just felt like home. Thanks for a great start to our morning that we really needed while travelling with a small child. Definitely recommend.More

One of the few eating places in a small town. It opens early from breakfast and the pizza is great. Service is friendly and prompt too. Drop in!

I have toured around NZ for three months, have had cooked breakfast at a lot of places. This is by far the worst and dearest I have had. $28.70 for this. The smallest sausages I have ever seen, even cheerios are bigger. It did taste...alright, it was just the size of it.More

Excellent made-to-order coffee and handmade pies, sausage rolls or panini sandwiches. Casual indoor or outdoor dining. Not open for dinner. Note: decaf coffee is an extra 50 cents.

We had the most delicious food here. The carrot cake was amazing and the coffee delicious. The cafe sits conveniently beside the helicopter company so after a flight drop in and chill. We had the most glorious weather and sat outside in the sun. What...a beautiful place. I loved it- clean, lovely staff and wonderful setting.More

It was a Mon and many eateries were closed. Chanced upon this restaurant and had butter chicken and cheese steak pies with cappuccino and flat white. Nice and cosy place.

Called in once more for a late lunch at this fabulous wee cafe on Monday 24 October, Labour Day, after a very wet drive up the coast from Arrowtown to Hokitika. Couldn't go past Allanah's Spicy Tomato Soup with hot toast. It was SUPERB, again....And I got a hug from the chef who remembered me from my last visits...how special is that ! If you're going through Fox and need some sustenance, do visit this delightful, friendly cafe with great food. I will be back in February :) xxMore

Called in early to check if open late in evening on our return. Very helpful staff. The café was full of travelers having breakfast that looked great. When asked about sandwiches for lunch, the lovely staff made some to order for us. We added a...muffin to our order, which were fresh and delicious. Next time I will not have breakfast before visiting. Thanks so muchMore

I stopped here for a coffee and breakfast/snack. Coffee was ok, not really good, but good enough. However, food seemed stale and service was bad, it made me feel unwelcomed. I would not recommend vising this place.
