I enjoy coming here for lunches and coffees & cakes with friends. You can't fault the quality and taste of their food and beverages, but prices are really high, a piece of cake, a mini cheesecake or an Afghan Cookie are $8, a pie with a side salad about $10+

It was lunch time and we were in the store, and decided to eat at the inshore cafe top floor. Ordered the poached eggs on Five grain bread, pot of tea and two differing cake slices.

There is a good selection of cabinet food in the cafe as well as drinks (including wine if desired). I had a lasagne which was nice and not... More

They had a good selection of food with a good balance of savoury and sweet. It reminded me of the tea rooms in the large department stores of old. If you are in Queen Street, feeling peckish, and looking for a rest then this cafe is worthy of consideration. It's located on Level 2 of Smith & Caugheys department store,... More

We were feeling peckish while shopping so popped into Smith and Caugheys cafe on Level 2. The food was a little expensive but the staff were lovely and very obliging. There seems to be allot of regulars who come here and the staff knew just how to look after them. Pleasant surroundings comfy chairs. The usual suspects in the cabinet.... More
