Pleasant, open-plan cafe on the main road through Te Anau; a great place for a snack lunch if you have just come off the overnight boat on Milford Sound. Plenty of parking and a number of vegan options. Very friendly (as always in NZ!)and helpful staff.

Stopped by for lunch and was pleasantly surprised - almost everything on the menu could be prepared gluten free! I had a very nice chicken bacon and avocado burger gluten free. It was served in a large gluten free bun rather than gluten free bread or lettuce leaves. Would recommend them.

Arrived quite late for dinner but they were more than accommodating.
Recommended by a local and did not disappoint.
Our steak/potato/vegie meals were extremely tasty and very filling. Were eyeing up dessert but couldn't attempt it after our mains. Didn't have to wait too long either.
Excellent drink selection.
Only downside was getting staffs' attention to be seated- initially went to the bar where they told us to go to this 'wait to be seated sign'. After waiting for quite a while we had to go into the restaurant to get a staff member as we don't think they had even seen us there.
Overall, however, would definitely go back and really enjoyed ourselves.

I only had a coffee here and it was pretty average. It's not terrible but certainly nothing special.
