Love that they use Allpress coffee and that they make them well. The muffins, especially the banana choc chip is the best - loaded with chocolate! Brunch meals are generous in size and tasty. Overall a great experience.

We have been several times and while the food may be a little more s pensive than other cafes it is well worth it. The food is yummy and portions are large. There is a large outdoor dining area,which could use a bit of doing up but is great for kids and hot days

With its old worldly charm The Station offers a warm welcome for all of its customers. A simple yet well appointed menu, there is something for all. The food is beautifully prepared and presented and is absolutely delicious. The Station is the best place to eat in Rangiora and my 'go to' spot.

We have been to The Station 4 - 5 times now and I cannot fault their breakfasts. All I can say it that its fabulous. The portions are big and their homemade Hashbrowns are to die for. The staff are very helpful and cheerful.

Went to this restaurant for Sunday breakfast. We both had the eggs benedict with bacon. This was served on homemade hash browns, which were great. Good coffee that was lovely and hot. We used our entertainment card as well, so that was a bonus.

It is really good to experience a place with sincere staff that care. The best brunch in Canterbury with an Egg Benedict of distinction. The site has lots of character and a must visit for all visitors to Rangiora.

Everything works! From the welcome and service to the food, their touch of class will be noticed. A small menu means quality.
