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

Again, I'm local and love to support local businesses. This place is great for a coffee and lunch. I love their beet salad - yummo! They also have a selection of deli dry foods like spices, herbs, vinegars, oils etc.

Whenever we go to Fairlie we make a point of eating here. There is always a good selection of food on the menu or in the cabinet. They do a great coffee.
