If you want good coffee then look no further. It is tedious trying to find good coffee. Gusto has a lovely atmosphere and the coffee is the best. Food looked good but I didn't eat so can't really comment. However, presentation was good. I did have some misgivings on my first visit here because after my order was taken the... More

We had breakfast here before doing the Queen Charlotte walk. Friendly service and excellent coffee and good fresh food for breakfast. Lots of locals there dining in or grabbing a takeaway coffee first thing in the morning is always a good sign.

I had one of the best Carrot Cakes & coffee at Gusto. While I didnt have the pasta mains, they looked delicious with good portions too! All the locals agreed that Gusto was the best cafe in Picton. Would definitely recommend a visit to Gusto`s when in Picton.

I haven't eaten there for some months but I have enjoyed a good coffee and the odd ginger gem made with very good preserved ginger. Gusto has a pleasant dog-friendly seating area with sun umbrellas, as well as indoors which can be quite noisy but good atmosphere

We came here every day for coffee while we stayed in Picton. Hands down, the best coffee in Picton and Blenheim. The food looked excellent as well.
