When over from Darwin I head down to the 39 Cafe in Hokitika they do one of the best whitebait sandwich’s with mint sauce on the side. They have a menu to suit all diners and make a dam good coffee, if in town give them a try you won’t be disappointed.

We called in for a coffee @ 39 café before hitting road - we were disappointed in the coffee - it was weak,had no taste (like slightly flavoured milk) & was not stretched - come on guys you can do better then that. We bought sammies & cake to eat on the road - these were good.

We came for lunch in this small coffe, everything was ok before taking a coffee. We ordered a Jumbo ( big size) chai latte, but we got a Latte, so we went to see the waitress to ask what we ordered. She answer us than it was not possible to get another one. She ask us to pay again because the order was not "clear".
I'm really upset about that, the manager was more than unfriendly. Finally we coudnt drink this coffee because my girl friend cannot drink cafein.
Food all right, staff more than unfriendly.

Had a stopover in this little cute Town and saw this Cafe.
Service was really friendly and Coffee tasted good.
We also had a Scone which only came with Butter ......
Strange to have it without Jam and Cream but the Scone was yummy anyway

Loved sitting outside with the beautiful flowers around us.....

It says free Wifi, but didn't work for us....
