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.

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.

Great fish & chips and omelette with ham, cheese&tomato. Friendly stuff and a good place for a quick stop on a long trip!

We stopped to pick up some food for lunch on our way through. In a hurry so grabbed and ran. I paid $9 for a salad that on opening amounted to a handful of masculine and maybe a finger size bit of chicken. But I feel that even that's being generous. I get that it's a stop over town and... More

Sorry to hear your salad was not satisfactory. Your description is not how our salads are prepared, and we feel human error on the day with one of our kitchen staff must have resulted in the substandard preparation and feedback has been passed to our kitchen supervisor. We would like to offer you a refund on your purchase and ask... More

Enjoyed our lunch. I had a Mediterranean salad, my brother had a cheese burger and my sister in law had a bagel. They were all very good. Service was good. I would recommend stopping here on your way.
