Choice of indoor or outdoor dining option, the food is great hot and cold options. Very pleasant surrounding in the small township of Pleasant Point.

We went out here today for a coffee. Hubby had the coffee and muffin, I had a summer berry smoothie and a spinach and ricotta roll. All very tasty. Lovely friendly service. Will definitely go again

Arrived with the Goldwing Club. Mostly we all had tea and coffee but some had very nice snacks. Atmosphere was great. There were lots of things to look at, photos of special local people and interesting old displays. Nice crafty gifts were also available for purchase. Not ridiculous prices either. Staff were great and service excellent. We had warned them... More

We had a lovely morning tea with custard squares and cake. Great service in this neat building. Worth the drive out from Timaru. Check out their legends wall as well as their old mags and paraphenalia from days gone by.

Stopped by for lunch, greeted by friendly staff and the venue was quirky. The food was yummy and full of flavour. The outside furniture is a must see.

What a great find. This is a great place to stop for lunch, really nice little village but the cafe has a great selection of salads & quiches, all at very good prices. And they were very pleasant too

We made an unplanned stop here and were utterly charmed by Legends Cafe (originally the Post Office) and the other beautifully maintained historic buildings in the centre of town. It was a good move as we were soon served up with some of the most delicious treats that I have sampled on this trip to NZ. The cake here is... More

We stopped at this quirky little cafe which we spotted as we were passing through Pleasant Point. The decor is reminiscent of an old New Zealand wool shed with lovely artefacts and memorabilia. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful in explaining the menu to us. My husband and I had a delicious Chicken Curry Pie on the recommendation... More

After a trip on the railcar we stopped popped into this lovely cafe for lunch. Cafe selection food to die for. Since my husband and me were not too hungry we choose the famous Denheath Custard Square, not to be disappointed. Presentation was exceptional with a touch of freshly grown raspberries, so sweet, cream and passionfruit. My son ordered the... More
