So excited to find keto options & not have to adapt something on the menu to suit. Delicious too! LOVE that they've had a good clean up & not junky items for sale everywhere anymore as that really put us off coming here!! We'll be...back.More

A great cafe - I used to come here four years ago for a coffee when I travelled with work. It was great back then. Stopped in Geraldine for a coffee and was glad to see it was still here😉👌 great friendly service and very...helpful. We requested our coffee as takeaway but then decided to share a lamington - it arrived split in half with cream on each piece! They went the extra mile! Well done country cafe 😉More

Coffees for two served promptly. Food, corn fritters took 25 minutes. Drink finished before food arrived. Three - four staff working and a few customers wanting service but no lines of people waiting. Not a busy time for staff. Very slow service and food mediocre...and stogy. We will not be returning to this cafe again.More

I stepped in for a quick bite to eat and a coffee. The service was friendly the coffee good. The egs and bacon wasn't briljant however. It wasn't horrible but average at best (bacon could have been cooked much more), certainly not 17 dollars worth....Hence only the average rating.More

Dropped in Last Saturday after my son played football to get a drink to warm up, blown away with how awesome the lady was in the cafe, perfect drinks even gave my lad a cookie. Will be back

Excellent vegan menu and everything we all got was delicious. Hubby ordered the pork pie and really enjoyed it Would thoroughly recommend if you are looking vegan food

Food was great, the poor lady working on her own this Sunday was RUNNING but still super friendly & efficient. The thing that annoyed us is the stuff everywhere for sale!! Plants & jewellery & just bits on every available surface plus extra tables of...it, shelf in toilet entrance full of half dead cactus plants for sale. Soso tacky!! We didn't even see the Covid-19 sign in book at the door as it was surrounded by junk on the table. They need an identity overhaul. Again though the double down, the BLT, the coffee & the service was good.More

We stopped in here on our way to Christchurch. I picked up the gluten free brownie, coconut lemon muffin and fruit cake. All were delicious. My daughter got the caramel slice and enjoyed it as well. Great to find a bakery that has such a...wide selection of gluten free goods.More
