Stopped here on our way south and back again. We had burgers and they were big, juicy and utterly delicious. The coffees were good and hot.

With highway 1 closed because of slide damage, you end up going through Murchison. Beechwoods offered a good sandwich for the road. Barista fare was average.

We arrived at the café at the same time as two bus loads of tourists - so we expected a wait. But with two staff on the tills the line moved swiftly and smoothly. We got food to go and it was fresh and delicious.

A return trip from Nelson to Christchurch had us stopping here for lunch. This happened at the same times as two coaches. The wait to place an order was quite slow until a second register was opened. Rather than wait too long we only had a sandwich and coffee

We stopped for a late lunch. Each ordered a ham and salad sandwich and shared a salad. All was very fresh and generously sized. Coffee was quite good also.

Sadly I am very unimpressed. I ordered a vegetarian green curry as this was to be my main meal of the day. Out came a bowl of rice and sauce - just sauce. No vegetable or anything in it. Further to this it is so clearly from a jar! I can taste it! The rice was also all stuck together.... More

We were traveling to Hanmer and by chance stopped here for a bite to eat. There was a bit of a queue but it was dealt with efficiently. We had a sandwich and a muffin with drinks in no time at all, very very tasty, look no further if you want a tasty bite on your journey.
