It's a self service Café in Gisborne. The quality of the pie I had was very nice. The coffee was Okay as well. However, the place has a very simple ambience, which is not bad but can be boring at times.

Not my number one choice for dining but strangely the best eggs benedict I have had in Gisborne. Perfectly cooked eggs, generous on the bacon and hollandaise. Coffee is OK, counter food sub-par but a large range.
