Wonderful wayside stop in a beautiful setting on our journey from queenstown to franz josef. The coffee was just what was needed on our trip. it also has a few food items. Great place to just stop and stretch your legs. Make sure you have your sandfly repellent , they can be little bitey.
Remeber to have a sharpie to write a message on one of white rocks in the pile nearby.

Thank Mick A

Good place to have a rest. Choc chip icecream delicious. Blueberry a bit too sour for my liking. Coffee pretty good. Served by two nice girls....one German one American.

We stopped here on our way to Franz Josef and it was a brilliant stop.
We had hot chocolate and soy chai latte, and it was just delicious, made even more so by the friendly service and brilliant views.

Good on the person who opened this place as it’s literally in the middle of nowhere but slap a smile on your face when customers come a calling for goodness sake! We ordered ice cream and a muffin to take away. Ice cream good, muffin dry.

Whitebait is a speciality of the West Coast. I was disappointed with fritter. while it was large in diameter, but it had very few whitebait in it. It was not value for money at $12.50. Due to the remote location, remember to have cash as Credit cards etc are of no use (no cell phone coverage)
