Situated on the sunny corner of Courtenay Place and Cambridge Terrace, it is opens at 9am everyday, serving food from breakfast through to late night snacks, and everything in between.
Our philosophy is simple – food and drink we can be proud of. We showcase some of the best of New Zealand with reverence to international products, particularly an enviable whisky and cognac selection. We specialise in Gourmet Burgers and Steaks, but cater for most palates. We have nothing on the menu over $23 and starting from $5.

Walked in and didn’t even get acknowledged by the lady behind coffee machine, there was no other staff members present.
I was left standing for a good 5 minutes looking around to order a coffee. Another customer came in and ordered coffees and left money on counter and was acknowledged by staff member.
I asked can i please order a coffee, and she told me i had to wait after she had finished making these coffees for me to place order.
Absolutely SHOCKING service.
In two of the breakfasts we found pieces of metal (these things can happen, not the end of the world), we told the waitress who appeared disinterested and simply said she would let the chef know… No follow up from her or the chef about this until when leaving we asked if she had told the chef. Yes, she said, but he doesn’t know where it is from. We asked if we could something to compensate for this, perhaps a free coffee (even though these were not of a good standard!) but were told no. We would have at least expected an apology for the metal found in the food.
We will not be coming back again. Very unpleasant experience.
Nachoes are also a winner.
Love the generous supply of sauces.
Great service, friendly staff. Good location.
We had a movie that started in 1 1/3 hours so thought we would have plenty of time to have a quick lunch and drink.
My husband and I ordered a burger and a drink, burgers turned up 1 hour later cold.. safe to say we will not be coming back, waste of money!
The burgers there are amazing, so are the pancakes. My only compliant is that any special requests you make will sometimes be forgotten.
The staff seem genuinely happy to be there and were polite and helpful with any requests we had.
We will definitely be back soon!
It took 30 minutes between our drinks being delivered and our food orders being taken, despite it being a very quiet morning.
The coke I ordered was completely flat and when I requested a replacement I was told ‘it isn’t much better’.
The guacamole on the nachos was obviously not home made and looked like congealed snot. The beef and beans had been unevenly heated and there were cold spots.
The fries with the sandwich were not cooked through.
Overall, a very disappointing experience, I will certainly not be returning.
