This business is no longer. It is now The Wine Station. Do not go expecting ice cream! Lots of wine, platters, hot soup.

Now called the wine station & not a cafe at all really. Details need update on TripAdvisor. Coffee was over extracted & burnt so the number 1 rating on here is not warranted

Hands down the best buffet experience. To even call it a buffet doesn't do it justice as every dish was pure gastronomy. The starter platter blew me away. I would never be able to find such a varied and fresh selection of dips, pate, rillette,...More

We sought this place out only to find it closed for no apparent reason. Apparently their opening hours are really unpredictable. Don't count on it as it's a little out town.

A chance to experince different foods in a unique way. I found lots to tempt me, which is difficult being a vegan in Blenheim! The service was excellent, the food amazing and I will definitely be returning.
