The once popular Trappers Restaurant, 79 Revell St. (& 03/755-5133), is open limited hours and does not always impress locals with its quality or service. It specializes in wild food and game in rustic atmosphere. Preston's Bakery Restaurant, 105 Revell St. (& 03/755-8412), has a range of freshly baked picnic food, but its old-fashioned milk-bar atmosphere is not a place I would choose for a leisurely meal.
Café Flixtftí?, Regent Theatre Building, Weld Street (& 03/755-8581), serves light lunches, including vegetarian fare and possibly the best coffee in Hokitika. Filling Station Café, Revell St. (& 03/755-8344) is a cheap and cheerful option with outdoor dining; and Tasman View Restaurant, in the Southland Hotel, 111 Revell St. (& 03/755-8344), is popular for its Friday-night smorgasbord.
Café 41, 41 Weld St. (& 03/755-8007), now has a Chinese-influenced menu and cheap meals ideal for a backpacker budget; Café de Paris , 19 Tancred St. (& 03/755-8933), has improved a little—when service is not patchy, it provides what may be the best meals in town.
