This is some complex on a sheep farm but they make an effort with the cafe and bar, with a pleasant wood interior and good food. I had eggs benedict with an actual chunk of salmon fillet plus tomato relish - some good flavours but unfortunately there was just a dribble of hollandaise. I saw a big breakfast go past and it was good and big. Given the prices are reasonable, this makes for a great stopoff.

Friends recommended we stop her for a break on our way to Mt Cook. It’s a warm friendly place with a good selection of morning or afternoon tea options. I think there is also a restaurant but we weren’t looking for a meal. The coffee was good and the muffin was delicious. This is in a beautiful part of New Zealand and the scenery is spectacular. If the weather is nice take a table outside and soak up the atmosphere. Clean facilities, friendly staff and reasonable prices. A good place to stop!

We dined as a group here after a big day on the A2O ride. We were welcomed by the nice young staff and given water straight away.
The ambience is casual but nice. We were really surprised by the fabulous quality of the meals. Beautifully presented. We had the salmon with lovely veggies, and chicken with rice and some extra veggies. Both dishes creative and very generous and tasty!
We did leave some space for dessert, so got the cheesecake which was presented in a glass. No problem to get a bit of ice cream too. Tasty and not too sweet.
Really enjoyed our night here. Nice simple wine menu too.

Travelling home from Wanaka we stopped for our morning coffee.
The service was great. Our orders were actioned in a quick, efficient and friendly manner.
We enjoyed the scones and muffins and spoke very good coffees.
The cafe is very spacious with both indoor and outdoor seating.
Great place for travellers to stop for a meal.

Stopped for breakfast on way through. Had good reviews but we were a bit disappointed. Coffee was great and the breakfasts were made quickly but average bread, packet hash browns, poor quality deep fried sausages (yuck) and just all a bit average. Looks like it just feeds the masses. The cabinet food looked ok.
