Great setting and good coffee. It is easy to sit outside enjoying a coffee here. Well worth the drive from Timaru.

Lovely cafe handy to the train. Pleasantly surprised when I asked for extra plates to split dessert with the kids the dessert turned up already split up with whipped cream and ice cream for each person. Will be back!

From the time the lady came round my side of the counter to show me which food was gluten free I knew this would be good service. We opted to share a cake and when it came (brought after we finished our pie and quiche they had plated it on two plates. This is a wonderful idea. The food was... More

We went to Legends to have lunch and coffee. We were joined by "Sophie" a very friendly tabby cat who made herself at home on my lap and just so very sneakily tried to have some of my lunch ...she did not succeed. We enjoy the atmosphere and surroundings. Service with a smile.

It's been many years since we last visited so it was interesting to go back for a late afternoon coffee and cake. Coffee was great, but the food options were very limited. Being towards the end of the day, I guess much of what would normally be there would have sold. Hope that was the case. The New York cheesecake... More

We call in here every time passing for a custard square. Notice they have got smaller!!! Coffee was not as good either. Staff member wiped down a tots highchair and then put the cloth on the counter. Picked up by another person and used. Not a good sign. Will not come back again.

I went to Legends to have a coffee with a friend, and to have a Denheath Custard Square, which are divine. Had a piece of carrot cake, yum!!!! Served up looking as delicious as it tasted. The venue was great, lovely old furniture and interesting art in Cafe. Would definitely go back next time I am in Pleasant Point

Light, fluffy almost like a mousse. Pity pastry top and bottom on the soggy side but the icing had a nice hit of lemon as contrast. Coffee: mocha they definitely were not and tasted exceedingly bitter. Nice outside atmosphere to relax and close to public WCs. May stop again for another square but not a coffee...

Choice of indoor or outdoor dining option, the food is great hot and cold options. Very pleasant surrounding in the small township of Pleasant Point.
