Wanted a bite to eat and a coffee while visiting Moeraki Boulders. The cafe was very busy and a number of tables remained uncleared for the majority of our visit. Only had wedges (very poor quality commercial ones) and sour cream and a coffee. Expensive for quality. Didn't bother paying the $2 each suggested/requested to access the boulders as felt I had already paid over the top for a snack and drink. May have just been an off day.

Great spot out if the wind after viewing the rocks & a walk on the beach. Friendly staff. The freshest fish you can get, straight off the boats. Unusually served in a flat folded omelette pancake. Worth a try, good salad & chips.

We went to this Café only because there was nothing else in the area. Had only chicken soup with corn. This was appalling to say the least; the soup felt as a very industrial one, we felt kind of jelly, chicken was scarce, the slice of bread that came with it felt bad. And the price....was sky rocketing- why should a relatively small bowl of soup cost over 17 NZD??? Please, do not take advantage on the tourists and prepare good food!!

Good food cooked to order and on a nice day you can sit outside and look at the boulders before going down there . The staff are good natured and friendly. It is one of those places where you would only return to if the whole experience had been good in the past. It always is. If you have a decent breakfast latish morning you can go without lunch.

We stopped for coffee after visiting the beach - this is a decent cafe , with plenty of space for the number of visitors who come to see the boulders.

If its a nice day and you can find a tableon the deck outside, the views are great.
