    Stumpers Bar & Cafe
    3 more images

    Stumpers is your standard cafe/bar with an open dining area. The ambience is casual friendly; the service good and the food great.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Fish & Chips which was beautifully battered Blue Cod , a crips salad and home-style Tartare sauce.

    My mother had the soup - Potato, Leek and Chilli - and she is still talking about it!

    Eats Cafe: Good food, but a bit trendy

    by DSwede Updated Sep 23, 2010
    Eats Cafe

    I'm not quite sure about the larger than life New Orleans-esque mural on the wall with a big jazz theme, particularly since the music that they had playing was more of a pop-40.

    There are lots of tall tables so you can easily find a place after ordering your food at the counter. The menu is written on chalk boards on the wall, and there are some cold items in the display cases.

    The food is decent, but in my opinion, a bit expensive for what you get.

    Favorite Dish: The burgers and sandwiches were good. The dessert slices were quite tasty too, like the hokey pokey slice and fudge slice.

    We didn't try it, but there are also breakfasts, pizzas and other dishes like fish & chips or whitebait.

    Porky's Takeaway: A Quiet Dinner

    by Aidy_p Written Apr 6, 2007

    Jac and I were walking up and down Weld Street and Revelle Street not knowing where we should eat. We ended up at the least exciting place - Porky's Takeaway.

    Since we had the entire night to ourselves, we thought we'd dine-in. It was not too crowded with just a couple people waiting for their take-aways. Actually, there was no crowd at all. We were the only couple in the restaurant. We didn't really understand why no one wanted to dine in. "Was this place haunted or something?" I threw Jac that question.

    The owner of this place looked chinese but I never did approach the guy as he did not look like he had wanted to talk. After serving us, he sat at the furthest end table, reading his newspaper.

    Favorite Dish: I guess it's the Fish & Chips since all the take-aways were just that. So we followed the crowd. Well, the food is not too bad. Especially for the reasonable price that you pay.

    The Tasman View Restaurant & Bar is part of Southland Hotel.

    The name of the restaurant spells out that you get to have the view of Tasman Sea while you dine.

    Not only does it offers Tasman Sea view, the balcony also offers views of Mt Cook to the south and the Paparoa Mountain Range to the north.

    If you love lamb and beef you must taste their award winning dishes.

    Stumpers

    Stumpers bar and cafe has a warm, cosy atmosphere and features copper art work on the walls that has been designed by talented local artists.

    From a light snack to a full delicious meal Stumpers has the full menu for the whole family. There is an option to chillout with a beer at the tastefully decorated outdoor dining area or at the indoor modern bar.

    I would love to have a cup of coffee on the giant wooden chair and watch people goes by.

    Trappers is a backpackers' hostel and restaurant on Revell Street.
    The filling Station Cafe is also nearby.
    It is a few steps away from the beachfront.

    Have not tasted the food because I heard that the food just sounds like the its name. So it may be a trap ;p

    (same Bakery): Bakery 2

    Wall full of biscuits!

    Not only were the pies great value, but they also sold home baked biscuits here - a whole wall full of them.
    Amazingly, the packets of biscuits were only about $2.50 for up to about 30 biscuits! Such great value I didn't expect to find in a remote town (in fact, I would have expected the opposite). A very pleasant surprise.
