Ordered eggs florentine for 3 and some chips for the children. 49 minutes later asked how much longer told it was being plated, 20 minutes later food arrived eggs with hard yokes on a fatty hash brown. Offered free drinks but had to ask 10 minutes later for them. Maybe just a bad day but the food was really substandard.... More

Went out to see the Pegasus Village, and found the Flat white coffee shop open for a short time. They closed on Sunday at 4.00 pm. However I had time to sit and have a coffee and enjoyed my time there. The atmosphere was very comfy, and homely. I sat in one of the leather Lounge settings that they had... More

Good little cafe with a great range of cabinet food- would loved to have seen a full cooked breakfast on the menu, but was very happy with our eggs florentine, service was great and food arrived quickly :)

I have had coffee here before and it was fine but today I am compelled to write a review as the slices we purchased at $4.80 a piece were unfortunately not edible. My husband bought 4 slices ... A chocolate and berry brownie, lolly cake, chocolate brownie and caramel slice. Unfortunately the only one that was edible was the lolly... More

My partner and I frequently walk our dog around Pegasus and on a Sunday we at times treat ourselves to some brunch here. Lovely service, dog friendly and really delicious food. If your a dog lover this is a great place to meet and greet other dogs and their owners. Plus they make a really good coffee.

After a late start to the day we had a very pleasant 30 min drive north of Christchurch to the Flat White Cafe and Bar in Pegasus. Quiet, pleasant ambiance, friendly staff and tasty food. Beef burger, fish and chips, gelato for dessert and beverages.

This café used to be good but on our last visit we were most unimpressed by the young girls serving . Ordered a gluten free item to then be advised it actually wasn't and when I asked if a gf one could be made then ( only a toastie!) , was curtly told No. I chose something else to then... More

We have eaten here in the past and have been generally satisfied apart from extremely slow service. However, today was just plain annoying before we even finished trying to order lunch, so we left and went to a different premises in Woodend itself. .I don't know why some staff feel impelled to be over familiar and patronising when serving seniors,...

Set in beautiful Pegasus town with walks, children's play parks, lake and beach nearby. Nothing was too much trouble. Served with a smile 😊

Went for a meal to this restaurant last Friday night and was bowled over by the friendly girl waitress who showed us the blackboard menu. We felt we needed time to think about our order but were rushed in to deciding what we would have. The meals were lovely-venison and pork belly but we felt the place lacked atmosphere. It... More
