Dropped in here for a bite to eat. Nice friendly atmosphere with great cake and coffee and tea. On the main road with parking out front. The menu for dining in is really quite nice. Suggest you try this place out I am sure you will not be disappointed.

We wanted to know where to get the best chowder in town and our motel owner recommended us this unassuming little cafe and boy did they live up to expectations! The chowder was thick with generous chunks of fresh seafood and so flavoursome. The ciabatta that came with it was crispy and buttery without being overpowering. We also ordered some good ol’ fish & chips (but instead of chips, I went for the mash), and a mussel pie to go. The fish was fresh and perfectly battered, the mash creamy and I loved that it came with a side of veggies. The mussel pie was gold the next morning too! Would definitely drop in again on our next trip to Kaikoura.

We stopped in early in the morning for breakfast on a road trip down Hw1. This beautiful little cafe serves the best sausage we've had in four years in New Zealand. The eggs and sausages plate fed two adults generously, and came with the best toast either of us has ever had. The ciabatta was crisp on top and soft on the bottom, buttery and not too thick. It's a strange experience discovering that toast can be awesome enough to leave a review for. The hostess said the secret was love - something I'm actually convinced of for once. The service was amazing and welcoming, and the coffee was a great start for our long day. I hope to return soon.
