I asked for a double shot small flat white coffee. What eventually arrived was tepid coffee flavoured milk. The selection so food is pretty standard road side cafe. Try Rivers Cafe round the corner. It is much better when it is open

On the way from Nelson to Hokitika we stopped here for a break. It is a surprisingly large place and was busy but the service was quick and coffee & blueberry muffin quite ok and a reasonable price.

Ordered snapper with salad, extra salad instead of fries. Fish very overcooked, batter hard, and fish dry. Salad very limp, never had such a limp salad served anywhere. Had a muffin to finish, which was ok. Instead of spending $18.+ on the mail meal, would have been better to have just had a muffin.

I would like to personally apologise for your meal experience. This is not the standard to which we set ourselves and I am disappointed you had this poor experience. This will be addressed with our kitchen team. It is a shame this was not bought to our attention at the time so that we might immediately address with the staff... More

Stopped here on our way south and back again. We had burgers and they were big, juicy and utterly delicious. The coffees were good and hot.

With highway 1 closed because of slide damage, you end up going through Murchison. Beechwoods offered a good sandwich for the road. Barista fare was average.

We arrived at the café at the same time as two bus loads of tourists - so we expected a wait. But with two staff on the tills the line moved swiftly and smoothly. We got food to go and it was fresh and delicious.

A return trip from Nelson to Christchurch had us stopping here for lunch. This happened at the same times as two coaches. The wait to place an order was quite slow until a second register was opened. Rather than wait too long we only had a sandwich and coffee

We stopped for a late lunch. Each ordered a ham and salad sandwich and shared a salad. All was very fresh and generously sized. Coffee was quite good also.
