The food and drinks were good. However, the table we went to inside the cafe had dirty dishes on it and... More

Have tried three places in Alexandra for coffee over the last 24 hours. Take away and a large serve. Coffee beans are from Allpress. Good brew, medium strength, good temp and very happy to go back.

On a he Main Street of Alexandra. Always enjoy our coffee at this cafe. Food is good. Lots of variety. There is a cosy nest upstairs for a pirivate, comfy cafe experience. You can also sit outside under some nice shady trees on a hot day.

Had a toastie and coffee for breakfast. Ham on the toastie was good quality and off the bone. Bread was very thick slices of heavily seeded bread which wasn't what I was expecting and gave the jaw a workout. My husband had eggs benedictine which was served with a salmon fillet that was on the dry side. Eggs were nicely... More

This was across the street from the visitors center where my tour group dropped us off to get a bite to eat. The Tin Goose was right there, so this was the spot that we went to. It was a cute place, very quaint with delicious food on display! I picked a chicken, brie, and pesto on a bagel. It... More

Came late in the day so not much left to choose from. Had a coffee with my bagel and if was ok. Don't think I'd rush back for a coffee.
