Visiting Greymouth again and enjoyed another lovely coffee and dutch waffle made with love by the owner of the Lifeboat outdoor cafe. You cants miss this setup it’s situated on the southern end of the breakwater near the viewing platform. Certainly worthy of a visit to try his very basic but extremely nice coffee & waffles.

Stopped for a coffee while riding our bikes round Greymouth. Great location on the end of the flood wall and owners are great fun to talk to. Best coffee we had in 3 weeks in the South Island.

Stopped here along the way heading north. The owners are really friendly. Location is great, right at the end of the pier. Waffels were a great light snack. Such a unique place, I highly recommend making the stop if you're passing through.

Excellent coffee. Beautiful view. Fantastic waffles. If this is all you want, then head here. The couple who run this little establishment are from The Netherlands and they’re really really good with the waffles and coffee. Didn’t see any other options though. So just coffee and waffles. But really really good coffee and waffles. And really really nice view.

Nice spot at the sea. Richard & Monique are lovely folks and provide great stories along with coffee, tea and of course delicious Dutch stroopwafels! A nice stop along the west coast! An unique place to visit
