Visited on a rainy day, so inside dining only. Food delicious, great variety, fresh, hot and cold options. Very reasonably priced.

We stopped at the Boat Sheds after a bike ride. Beautiful location, we sat in the outside shed, day was good so it was good, I would imagine it would be cold on a winter's day. Standout dish was nachos ... massive portion. You need to be hungry to finish. Cute touch was the cat sat at the table beside... More

After visiting a family member at the hospital we decided to stop in here for a bite to eat. While the food is more on the expensive side, the quality of food is well worth it. We were only able to eat from the cabinet menu as the kitchen was closed, but the panini was to die for and I... More

Perfect place for a date, however food and drinks are average. Maybe because is location, this cafe is quite busy with locals and travelers. If the food and drink can be improved, it will defiantly attract more local customer to come back more often.

I'm celiac, so I primarily judge based on GF food offerings. That said, it is a really nice and quirky place to eat - there is even a cat to keep you company so I cannot be too hard on the place. But...... Their GF menu is not that great. Gluten makes me very ill and could eventually kill me.... More

Great location but food less than perfect. Crumbed fish deep fried to total dryness chips in trainted oil food more like a take away joint. Not one of our party of 6 enjoyed their food. Cheap ingredients poorly cooked.

After a kayaking tour on the river I popped in for a coffee and muffin to recuperate. The service was excellent and the food tasty. The menu of other food items looked pretty good so it would be worth having a meal here at some point in the future. Great tasting coffee and the staff went the extra mile to... More

We did the Punting on the Avon and had gotten a coffee here before so we decided to return for lunch. I got the Eggs Benedict and my wife got the Shed Breakfast of eggs, hash browns and toast. Some items were a little overcooked (my eggs), but flavors were great.

We bought our tickets and reservations at the i-Site, didn't have to stand in line to buy tickets. There was only one other family on the punt, so it was a quiet, relaxing trip. The punt operator and guide was informative and ready to answer questions about, the ride, the city, and New Zealand as a whole. My wife had... More
