The Stables is set on the main road in Akaroa, they have seating inside and out. I had a nice breakfast here. Just the norm. I did enjoy the coffee and I found that the staff member behind the counter was very friendly.

Enjoyed my breakfast, served with a nice coffee. Free wifi. Beware of the seagulls waiting to eat scraps off your plate.

We were attracted by the pretty garden setting but after waiting over an hour to get a $9 toasted sandwich that was underwhelming to say the least our attraction had waned somewhat. No salad or chips, just two bits of bread squashed together with some...More
