I had the vegetarian pie and it was the best eggless version I've ever tasted. Wholesome crust, tasty vegetable filling and some great coffee to round it off. Definitely recommend.

By far the best place in Kaikoura for coffee and cake! Great kids area and beautiful views from the tables at the back. Lovely fresh cabinet food and delicious cakes and biscuits. Lovely staff too

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...More

A homely old villa with different seating areas, kids play room, private back deck away from road. Lunch on the run or sit and enjoy. Fantastic gluten free menu for tho who need it. Evenings also in summer months and winter by arrangement for groups. Private functions are welcome. Licensed Cafe :)
