We bought a veggy bagel to share between two of us a large piece of cake and a large drink. Hot bagel cut in half was plenty but they had lots of choice for a lunch on the quay front. Good service and value for the money

This place reminds me of the inn keepers from Les Miserables. They charge at every nook and cranny. Whether it's 80 cents extra for a double shot of coffee (doubles are standard just about everywhere else) or more for a takeaway (takeaways are cheaper just about everywhere else). So $6.10 for a tepid, weak, cup of coffee. This would be... More

Just great coffee and pastry fresh daily. Locals are there every morning. The place is packed when cruise ships come in. Very friendly staff!

A morning coffee and cake after our walk, very nice indeed. We sat outside, just a few tables, but very enjoyable overlooking the harbour.

Had a salmon bagel, it's was ok, could have had more cream cheese. They toasted it like most cafes do to hide how fresh it is. Also had a chicken pie, which looked like it had bacon in it to boost the flavour. Service was good. What you might expect for a cafe, ok, maybe slightly better than most.

Have a coffee or treat - (complimentary toffee cookies amazing) along the foreshore of Akaroa's bay. If the girls didn't have to cope with the arrival of Legend of the Seas (including us) they may have taking us for a tour of their town. So friendly - food amazing - service cant be faulted

This beachfront place offers a small range of baguettes or bagels as well as pastries and delicious ice cream . It's essentially a takeaway deli but there are three tables outside and a few more indoors.

What a treat.... probably the best coffee in Akaroa, amazing waist expanding goodies made from the right ingredients.... no margarine allowed and very fresh sandwiches to take out if you are kayaking or water spring. Nice women behind the counter. Can be very busy on cruise ship days so you may have to queue.
