Went there for a quick lunch. Had to wait for 20 minutes for my drink to arrive. It was a ginger beer so I doubt it took that long to take it out of the fridge. The waitress wasn’t apologetic at all-she seemed withdrawn and indifferent to the fact I had to wait that long and almost finished my meal by the time my drink arrived.
Been a few times & it’s really hit and miss. I had the soup of the day once which was below average and tasted like can soup. My partner ordered eggs bene today and it was really good. I had a lamb pie with kumara mash from the cabinet which was okay. The food looks like it has been sitting there for a while tho. Ifthat fails it makes for a great place for a ice cream and drink while the kids play nearby in the park which is easily visible from all the seating.
What a great place to go for coffee with your kids! Seating outside and inside within sight of the playground. Good coffee, good food with options for the kids. Just be careful though, it does get very busy! At a function we had there, 2 of our orders never arrived. Luckily we had enough food and the manager was happy to refund our money! Well done Butterfly Creek!
UPDATE: The quality of the coffee ranges from excellent to dishwater, depending on who is the barrista of the day perhaps…?
