We went to do some laundry and found this restaurant next door to the laundromat. We decided to have some lunch while we waited on our clothes to dry. I had the seafood chowder with toast. It was very good and we enjoyed sitting out front on a beautiful day. We had a good lunch and clean clothes! Not a... More

Doesn't look much from the outside but the food was very fresh and tasty. Great cakes and other cabinet food. Needs some more interesting / non sugar cold drinks. Interesting mix of table inside and a small deck at the back.

Warmly greeted as we arrived for my birthday brunch, we sat outside in the warm sunshine and were quickly served our delicious coffees.

I did find my hash... More

Great place if on the move for the day, started at 07:30 on a day when we were going to have a long drive. Homely and friendly, had breakfast (sweet corn fritters) and a drink. Great presentation and flavour, really enjoyable.

After going for an early morning run along the sea front at Kaikoura, I was looking for a tasty and filling breakfast. The "Big Boy" was just the thing. We sat outside in the morning sun and looked up at the mountains. Good food, good service and good location - a winning combination.
