Same genere as Winniebagoes in the city. Usual high standard but: they can never cook a thin based pizza like Dominos or the Italians! It is such a shame becasue otherwise food and service is good. Even the Ferry road branch has undercooked thin based...More

Delicious food, great coffee and a nice bright venue. The couches and courtyard are great for a coffee with friends (with or, if you're trying to be good, without the cake!) The tables can be re-arranged to accomodate larger groups for lunch, though there was...More

Good size portions and quick service - good after a long day working. We had the Burger which was huge and the Akaroa salmon both of which were good. Good selection of beer and wine too.

The restaurant is a great little spot for a family lunch, but the kids menu is a bit lacking which made choice a little difficult for them. The soup was a bit floury. Hopefully we just struck this on a bad day.

This place used to be the best in town but has sadly fallen behind. It looks worn and scruffy, especially around the sofa/seating area. The coffee machine breaks down and you can't get a beer as they don't put a duty manager with a licence...More
