Reflections Cafe and Restaurant –

Reviewed by Karen – May 2014

The Place:

The views out every window are just amazing.  You can eat inside by the cosy fire or outside on the deck.  Did I mention the views? We thought this place was great and had dinner here as well as brunch.

The coffee was great and I even made my way back up to order another one.  There is a really good variety on the menu. There is even Wifi here if you need to update your blog 🙂

The Service:

The service was great.

The presentation:

The dish looked divine.  It was laid out to maximise it’s appeal. Nice touch with a couple of small bits of parsley.

  • The Benedict  – was great.
  • The bacon – the streaky bacon was cooked well.
  • The eggs – were delicious and runny.
  • The English muffins – were crisp.
  • The hollandaise – pretty sure this was home made, it was good but perhaps slightly vinegary.
  • The spinach – was a side order and it was yum, but would have liked more of it.
  • The hash brown – was a side order and it was yum.

Would we go again?

Yes, would definitely come back, the location is simply divine.


Style: Classic 6/10

Taste: 8/10

Originality: 5/10 – They cater for the Benedict, Montreal or Florentine addicts or you can build your own and have a combo.

Value: 7/10 The Benedict and Florentine were $17 each.  The Montreal was $22 which is pretty steep but that includes a side of spinach.

Eggs: (how good they were): 8/10. They were pretty darn good.

Overall score: 8/10

SH 8, Lake Tekapo
