Great variety of gluten free cakes, salads and dishes in general. A favourite place for breakfast, a quick lunch or a catch up with friends. Simply delicious food. Opposite the ocean and beach on the water front. Highly recommend.

Nicely named cafe, since it did have a "feel". Different types of seating in different areas made it interesting and the food and drink was varied. A nice place to refuel and relax en route.

Excellent food! Our bacon lettuce tomato buns were toasted to perfection. Coffee was good and my salad was fresh and crunchy. We can only hope to find somewhere this yummy near our home so that we could visit more often.

We stopped here for coffee on our way to Dunedin. Great coffee, banana bread, and friendly service in a cosy setting. All the nicer on a cold and wet summer's day.

Great little spot for a meal! I enjoyed roast vegetable salad and my partner had quiche and salad. Both delicious and the service was prompt and friendly.
