We had a lovely lunch here while doing some shopping in Invercargill. Friendly service and the blts was delicious and great value for money. Coffee not so flash - tasted like it was burnt but the food more than made up for it.

The whole presentation is bit tired and ordinary. The coffee is OK, the food standard. There are better cafes in Invercargill.
