We have been here a few times, the first time was a couple of years or so ago and we weren't very impressed then. Have been there a couple of times recently and what a difference. We have had both take-aways and eaten in and the food and service were great. Highly recommend

Delicious milk shake, roll, cream bun. Tea rooms like they used to be. A welcome fuel stop. Also delicious muesli and yoghurt breakfast. Thank you!

The food is usually very good however last time I was there the person serving was extremely grumpy and put me off returning. The coffee is not very good.

We often stop on our way through, and to be honest it's all about the pies. They are really good. They have some unusual flavours such as lamb and kumara, but also good old mince, for the less adventurous. I like that you can buy a big bottle of fizzy drink and take several glasses! I know it sounds silly!... More

What wonderful pies this cafe has. Plenty of unexpected outdoor seating as well as footpath tables. Today it was a hive of activity because of vintage car show down the road. The staff were quick & didn't miss a beat with a cafe full of people & lined up to be served. Still have not tried their coffee as today... More

The food was varied and a good selection and the tea was well done. The only problem was the tables which were formica - not good.
