no carrot cake, chowder or the good things they were once known for. Distinterested staff, waited for ages as they left the counter and headed out the back. Should have left then. Served tea for two in two take away coffee cups, dropped sauce on us, didnt even offer to clean it up, food served luke warm. Bus load arrived and all the staff disappeared and left a long que at the counter. Just a really disappointing visit. Will steer a wide berth next time as someone recommended a cafe further up the road.

Great to be able to travel SH1 between Blenheim and Kaikoura again, following the earthquake. Always stop at The Store at Kekerengu for geart coffee and food. At this time everything served in/on disposible cups/plates as they were also catering to the State Highway 1 and rail reconstruction teams. Still good!

The store is great on route pit stop between Picton and Christchurch. Lovely coffee and gluten free options for us Coeliacs to enjoy including yummy bagel with cream cheese and preserves. Plenty of freshly made items for your eyes to ponder as you arrive in large cabinet. Head down to the coast line and catch some of the local wildlife we saw Seals.

A restaurant in Route 1 with a great view of the ocean . The restaurant is a nice place to stop for coffee or a quick bite.

The restrooms wreaked.
