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.

Called in for breakfast only. Ordered two granola and yogurt’s bowls. Both prepared and presented very nicely and lots of fresh fruit and berry compote. Tasted great. Staff really friendly and quick to serve albeit it was quite busy. Highly recommended. Coffee also lovely too!

Outspoken staff who lack customer service. Not interested in hearing the customer’s complaint, Barista came across very cheeky.

Cafe has a pleasant vibe upon stepping in and plenty of cute quotes on the wall. Service is attentive, and we had a good lunch. I especially loved the mochachino!

We stopped here for a coffee mid-walk on a rainy day. Service is excellent and very efficient. We had coffees and chocolate Brownie. Couldn’t fault anything.

If you are in Franz Josef, go here for an excellent hearty and filling breakfast to fuel you all day during your hiking. Very friendly, courteous, and hard working staff that take your order, bring your food, and clean up after patrons have completed their...meals. Probably the best staffed restaurant we have been to in NZ. Excellent coffees, beautiful hearts on the flat whites. Super tasty eggs Benedict as well as eggs with toast and bacon. Several seating choices in both indoors and outdoors. This restaurant appears to be able to accommodate fairly large groups of people as well as we saw eight people come in and find comfortable seating quickly. They have take out food in the glass pastry/sandwich display shelves up near where you place your order…nicely organized, look delicious, reasonably priced, very tempting. If you have kids or you are a Disney fan, there’s a TV in the back corner that had Nemo playing on our first breakfast there (yes, it made me cry like it always does) and a Minions movie about kidnapping the Queen that was hysterical. Clean bathrooms too!More

There full cooked breakfasts are amazing. Heading back to Christchurch after staying the night and just after an earthquake I needed this. The staff, service and the restaurant were great. And the food quality was 100%. The price was just over $27 value for money....I will be back. MikeMore

We stopped here as our first stop between Hokitika and Queenstown. Grabbed a quick bite, used the loo and away we went. Food was nice, a bit pricey but not a surprise really. Pleasant enough as a good stop off point

We only went there for breakfast and lunch, what they are more known for. They list a closing time of 9pm, however as the others have answered it seems they close earlier than that. There are many great places for dinner... More
