More like a New Zealand style pizza than Italien , base was a bit undercooked and soft not crispy and the pizza was average, definitely way overpriced for what you get

While the pizza base was good, there was far too much toppings on the pizza, which frankly spoilt it.

Good pizza. Decor ordinary. Service was good. Good central location and reasonably priced. Limited wine choice.

We shared a pizza between 2 of us and there was plenty, it was tasty. As we were the only 2 in the cafe can't say much else.

Pizzas are good but very expensive. Drinks very expensive. More off a take away or cafe than a restaurant, so good for kids. Vege pizza was good and the kids can make their own combo's which went down well with them

Cafe by day, pizzeria by night - a great combination. Visited a few times during our stay and always found the food and service to be excellent. Free wifi for customers.

Stopped in with wife and son for breakfast on the way to the hot pools. Brought myself a breakfast aptly named the heart stopper and pancakes for my wife. As you can see from the photo all was amazing. Staff were great, very friendly and went out of their way to help us.

After approx 30 min... More

We were late in arriving and just felt like a pizza to go. Not much choice in town and the pizza while ok was expensive. Nothing to write home about

After a relaxing and enjoyable time with my family in the Hanmer thermal hot springs, and with our hunger up, we opted for pizza at this ideally located cafe just across the road.
