Yes, this place is a great spot for a good old-fashioned restaurant-cafe lunch feed. I can’t think of the right way to define the menu, but it’s got all those old comfort classics on it like Seafood chowder and garlic bread (which is what I had – yum), Chicken leek pie, Beef lasagna, etc. The kind of dishes that one would have typically enjoyed on an NZ menu in the nineties. And this is not a bad thing at all! I think there is definitely a market for a good range of comfortable, easy choice items like these (ie, it’s not full of ‘ethnic’ fusion style dishes).
The lunch space is in a very nicely attired cafe at the front of the central building. It’s cosy, it seems freshly refurbished, it’s designed to catch sun-rays in various pockets, and it’s good for a quiet meeting.
My actual seafood chowder was creamy and very full of meaty chunks of fish and seafood. The butter-laden garlic bread was soft, white and melted in my mouth.
It’s a very easy place to meet and park and talk.
