After a hard 4 hours in the (bike) saddle, this cafe served up the best hot chocolate ever! Service was friendly and homely

Never knew it was here. Always have stopped further west on the main street. Service was excellent with happy smiling staff. Food was reasonably priced and nice

I recently stopped here on my way back from Tekapo. Told my friends that were traveling with me you have to eat here. The food was delicious, and the staff were lovely. I was at this restaurant two years ago and its still got great service.

Wonderfully friendly and helpful service. The food was superb, coffee, too. Fish and chips - the best we've had anywhere in NZ. Meat pies were really good too. We went out of our way to return here for lunches/snacks two more times, we loved it so much. How do they make their chips so nice? I wish I knew. :)

Started to come here for a latte after yoga with friends then my husband and I had a cooked meal on two occasions. The service is always welcoming and friendly and any food from the cabinet has been very tasty. Beautiful 'just out of the oven' baking if often under the glass containers on the counter. Our fish and chip... More

Saturday night; a 'restaurant' which would only serve me takeaways. Unpleasant staff who clearly wanted to get rid of me.

We have been to the Te Kohurau Restaurant in Kurow in Sep 2011 before. Now, Sep 2014 we were here for lunch again. We brought some friends along this time. Pies were made there and were excellent. The lemon cheese muffins were to die for. We had them when they came out fresh and hot. Had some to take away... More

A comfortable, friendly cafe. The coffee is great. A large latte is more than a single shot with extra milk. It is full bodied. Food is homely and appears to be fresh. Definitely worth the visit.
