I initially thought this was part of the supermarket but inside was a treat. We stopped for morning coffees and homemade cake on our way to Mount Cook village. Both delicious. Then stocked up on quiches and salads for lunch. We had a salmon quiche and a mango and chicken tart and we shared a small carton of salad in... More

This place has great coffee, beautiful and reasonably priced food, friendly service and fast wifi. The only negative is that it doesn't open early enough. I could be wrong but it may not be open until 8 or perhaps 7.30 at the earliest which is a bit late if you're off fishing as we were.

We stayed overnight in Fairlie whilst driving from Queenstown to Christchurch as Lake Tekapo was very busy and pricy. We are here for breakfast and what a great spot. Best eggs benedict I've had in some time and the coffee was great. Will definitely return when we drive past again.

Not a word but should be. Enjoyed coffee, baking, wifi and the personal hand towels in loo. Was here after fleeing gale in Southland.

We're that family, the GF, DF, some non meat eaters, etc. etc. I've written this before but when we rock up to a place that we can all eat at and not spend that nights accommodation allowance, I'm stoked. The food good, the prices decent, and the staff friendly. If you're on your way to Lake Tekapo, eat here.

The service here was really nice - we were greeted warmly upon entering. It is a spacious cafe with upstairs seating and lots of beautiful art and photography. The food is very well presented. I ordered a pumpkin frittata and it was delicious - great balance of flavours. I would certainly eat here again if passing through!
