The service here was really nice - we were greeted warmly upon entering. It is a spacious cafe with upstairs seating and lots of beautiful art and photography. The food is very well presented. I ordered a pumpkin frittata and it was delicious - great balance of flavours. I would certainly eat here again if passing through!

We stopped in Fairlie enroute to Lake Tekapo and were looking for somewhere to have lunch. We started looking at the menu and then saw some of the delicious things for offer in the glassed display - way yummier than what was on the menu. So we went for these and weren't disappointed. We opted for the local cider to... More

Delicious surprise! We made an impromptu stop on our way from Mt. Cook to Christchurch. Made it just under the wire for ordering breakfast (11am cutoff)...had a "big Brekkie" and the eggs Bennie with greens. Both delish! Served with speedy, friendly service.

This is a warm friendly cafe which provides a child friendly atmosphere where the fire roars in winter, and it's warmth is matched by the smiley faces that greet visitors. Many diets are catered for and they don't have just ask and they'll try to oblige. Coffee is brewed to perfection and relax amongst local paintings and photographs from local... More
