Description: ees St cafe is located in the historic precinct of Oamaru, tucked away in what used to be a drapery way back in 1874. At Tees St we serve up bountiful breakfasts, a scrumptious selections of counter food, delicious coffee, milkshakes, sodas and all sorts of other treats for all who sneak in. Our menu changes regularly, taking advantage of the myriad of seasonal produce we have access to. We strive to provide humble offerings, inspired by our love of the convivial living, and celebrating the small luxuries of life.

This café looked pleasant from the street but the total disinterest from the staff was chilling. It was our first stop in town and therefore our first impression. Fortunately everywhere else we visited in Oamaru and spent money was very friendly.

I found the menu very limited...I ended up having the pie which was very nice, but just a pie. The service was average and they were not busy. I found the whole experience average.

I found this cafe really noisy, as it has a wooden floor, and boots make it even worse. It is small and the tables very close together, that you can hear other folks conversations, and not good if there are small children in there. Best time to come is early, or very late in the day, or sit outside if the weather is nice. A wonderful choice of teas and coffee, and nice sweet treats to be had.

We went here for breakfast after an overnight stay in Oamaru. The menu for breakfast was fantastic and varied and different from what you might expect for normal breakfast fare as well as having kombucha on tap. Food was good but the down side was that this was a small space and was no waiting space for customers coming in for takeaway coffee/Food and there was quite a large crowd came in while we were eating who made it difficult for other customers to maneuver around between the seating and the counter. However perhaps that's more of a one off I would give them another shot.

It's a relatively small place. If you are not in a hurry, this is the perfect place in town to have an excellent breakfast.
