The best salad, broccoli and bacon, that I've had for a long time. Coffee always excellent. Also tried the bacon and egg slab and a white chocolate and raspberry muffin.

We got here pretty much on closing time, so ended up having cabinet food and toasted sandwich. Friendly and helpful staff. Coffee was good. Corn fritters with bacon was delicious, chicken filo with cranberry was a little sweet for us. My son enjoyed his ham and cheese sandwich. Would definitely go here again.

Lovely friendly staff. We both had eggs benedict, mine with salmon, his with bacon. Salmon was plentiful and delicious, but slightly cold. Hollandaise was fabulous and creamy. Bacon good quality, and pretty nice coffee too. Nice surprise in Cromwell.

This is a consistently great cafe - excellent service, delicious food and whitebait fritters to die for. And the world's best white chocolate and berry muffins!

We came for breakfast and coffee. The scrambled eggs were well prepared and a generous size. The coffee was good. This is a solid cafe.

Visited with family, really tasty food, some gluten free options and very good, large sized coffee! Great spot for some classic Kiwi tucker, including cheese rolls aka Southland Sushi. Would definitely recommend :)

Stopped for lunch on our way to Tekapo. Food arrived very quickly and was very nice. No problem for us being vegetarian 😄.
