We ordered takeaway coffees from here while driving through Invercargill. I ordered a flat white with coconut milk but it tasted like it was almond. I gave the benefit of the doubt to the barista, so didn't ask. Whichever it was, the coffee itself tasted...thin and acidic. The aftertaste was so bad towards the end I couldn't even finish it. My partner's coffee was also below average. Definitely the worst coffee we've had in a while. Don't know if it was the beans that were bad, the milk, or the grind/extraction, or the barista. Wouldn't recommend or go back.More

We went here for lunch on Sunday.. we found the food very average.. the sausage roll was hard and crusty on the ends and dry and the toasted sandwich has a type of unusual sauce threw it and the bap has way too much relish...in it so it took over the taste.More

Great service from a young lady with short blonde hair today (29-12). My turmeric latte didn’t mix properly with the milk (which is fine- it happens, not anyone’s fault obviously) so I approached her and asked for a chai instead. She apologised and promptly dealt...with the issue and replaced my drink. So impressed with her customer service :) :) :) ThankyouMore
