Thai pancakes were delish as were the mushrooms. Corn fritters were friend which I wasn't expecting but they were great nonetheless. Bacon was a little over cooked. Coffee was average

Love the fit out! I had the kumara and feta fritters which were absolutely delicious. The coffee was ok but not great, but the excellent food made for a great experience!

The decor was really cool! It was industrial with Banksy on the walls which added to the awesome vibe of the place. Staff were really good and accommodating. Food was amazing and we were definitely full after the mean. Would definitely recommend and go back

Awesome little cafe. Dripped in for a coffee and some light breakfast. Coffee was well made and food was fresh and incredibly tasty. Atmosphere was also a plus. Staff friendly and service quick.

This place is clearly a local favourite and something you would normally find in a large city, not a small resort town. We were recommend to go here by staff at Vudu Café in Queenstown. Very busy place with lovely industrial décor. The staff very friendly and efficient. Our lunch was wonderful and well matched to the local wine recommended by our waitress. Try the baked mushrooms and the baked Spanish eggs.

Very hungry & still thirsty. When I first entered the premises I thought the staff were very enthusiastic but after 25 minutes realised this place is well under staffed and the staff were running to keep up with the orders. After 40 minutes realised they had missed my order and left disappointed thirsty & hungry!!!

Left Feeling Underwhelmed. Made a booking, looking forward to a family dinner out and was sadly left disappointed. Poor service by waitresses who were too busy to take orders and then serve orders. But time was made to put the order on the bill, even though we had not received the food or drink after reminders were made to staff more than once. Obviously this restaurant was short-staffed this evening with the waitresses literally running from table to table. The food was average, however the service, or lack thereof, was underwhelming. Additional staff need to be employed to give the restaurant a more relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Came here a couple of times over the new year period. Was very impressed with the atmosphere, food, service and coffee. Would definitely come back!

Gorgeous building promoting So much for a nice lunch sadly very disappointing. Too many staff nobody responsible for a table everyone seems to have a separate single task and it just doesn't work. Items we ordered forgotten with no apologies or indication of how long they might be. Food average- chicken salad had several pieces of undercooked chicken, avocado smash was clearly out of a jar or a catering mix with extender added, goodness knows what was in that, truffle fries were just fries with insipid aioli.
