My sister took myself and my Mom for lunch. Great place sitting outside surrounded by flowers in a garden setting under table umbrella. Best flat white coffee ever had. Huge sausage roll was consumed with ease with abundant white available. Prices very readable. All in all a must for any traveler.

We stopped here on our way from Christchurch to Tekapo. Had the most delicious lunch in a beautiful setting in the garden. Definitely recommend!

We traveled off our path and ended up here. What a delightful surprise. Had a delicious lunch here. I had the BLAT (bacon lettuce avocado tomato) and my husband had the salmon fish special. We also shared the asparagus soup. All of our meal were really good as was my cappuccino. This is a trendy cafe in an unexpected location.

This would be top dining in Geraldine. The place had people for Africa (Kiwi Phrase) and they were still coming in. Plenty of space and plenty of seats, The food was outstanding and ambiance even nicer.

We had our lunch here whilst driving to Christchurch from Queenstown on the very busy holiday weekend. There was a very good choice of cabient food, friendly and efficient service and a restful garden setting- all the ingredients we needed. Especially recommended is the chicken pie and mixed salads , particularly the noodle one.

Found this by our accident when driving from Mt Cook to Akoroa. Can't see it from the road as tucked in a bit. Really good selection of home made food and lots of salads and veg. My iced coffee with cream and ice cream was the best I have had to date! The garden is beautiful to sit and eat... More

In a nutshell, it's no wonder this place is so popular, as food, coffee and staffing combine to make it a pleasure to be there. The quality of the food is really high and well-presented, with the menu being vast as well as their being cabinet choices which looked equally appealing. Seating options include dining inside, on the veranda or... More
