We had a "layered vegetable quiche" and it came with a small side salad...it was fantastic and also had two coffees. If your in town, make sure to call in for something to eat....it's fab

A friend and I met for a lovely coffee at this venue. We were both impressed with the prompt and friendly service, together with one of the best mochas I have tasted in a while.

We went here twice during our brief visit in Blenheim. Each time it was high quality coffee in a friendly and warm environment.

Went here for lunch. It was very busy but staff were very friendlly. I had corn fritters with a fresh healthy salsa. These were nice, not oily or fatty, but a little "dry" overall - I felt the whole meal couldve benefited from some sort of small amount of a creamy or tomato relish on the side, however just my...

Absolutely love the iced coffee here. All the food is fab as well but the coffee is great to grab on a hot day and feel refreshed! You can't go past the service or the location. Love it!

This cafe is really good food, friendly service and such great coffee! So good that we went back today for breakfast and will likely return again tomorrow before heading out of town! It's really well thought out and nice touches. It made a tourist feel welcome and was obviously a favourite amongst the locals. Definitely check this place out! I... More

We went here for breakfast after staying a night in Blenheim. Nice and central, menu is easy to read, staff were friendly, they notified us of a 20 minute wait which was fine and not long at all. They brought our coffees out within 10 minutes and our food was brought out not long after that. I had the Eggs... More

I went to this cafe for lunch with my family in January. They have a very nice menu and quite extensive. Plenty of seating available upstairs and downstairs. Service was quick and staff were friendly and polite.

After we discovered our motel finished breakfast service at 10am, we wandered down the road to discover this little corner cafe. The food is all made on premises, and it's not too bad. I ordered a gluten free bacon, kumara and avocado stack and whilst I personally felt it was lacking in flavour and confused the palette, the rest of... More

A big city cafe in a "little" town. Great coffee, fantastic local craft beers and lovely local wines. Our menu features local and seasonal fare, with options ranging from hot breakfasts to afternoon indulgences, a wide variety of cooked and pre-prepared lunches from our cabinet, as well as gluten-free and vegetarian treats. We can even make you up anything from our cabinets or menu as a picnic to go! We're open seven days a week from 7.00am until 4.00pm. We serve the bustling breakfast, lunch and coffee trade, and the cafe is a well-utilised space for meetings. We are fully-licensed and also love hosting private functions. Come upstairs for relaxed dining or enjoy the famous Marlborough sun outside.
