We found the Mustard Seed Cafe by mistake, having decided against the Cafe/Bakehouse as one of my friends is on Weightwatchers, and drove round the back looking for the public conveniences, which are almost next door. Easy parking and we were delighted to see the lovely rose garden, with a table free, having been in the car for several hours.... More

This is such a nice spot. I was trilled to find G.F. food as I often have trouble. The service was slow but we sat in their beautiful rose garden and enjoyed a glass of wine while we waited. I would go back here anytime.

My wife and I had a coffee here while waiting in Turangi. It was a cool day but the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The coffee we had was good and the service was of a high standard. The cafe is located next to clean conveniences sync their is heaps of parking

Stopped in with dad and sister on the way to taupo. They were treated quite rudely presumely because I was the only one to order food. My meal (french toast) took ages to get to me, was poorly presented and wasn't that nice for how long it took. Other customers behind me even got their meals before me! The guy... More

My fiance and I love Turangi so much (we're getting married there this year!) that we go up as often as we can for weekends away from Wellington. Coming from the US, it took me a bit to let go of my morning coffee and embrace the Kiwi "flat white" and luckily for me, the Mustard Seed has a yummy... More

We ate here today. We found it quite pricey - $58 for our family of 4. 2 adults and 2 young kids. Lasagne was microwave reheated and dumped on the plate without so much as a lettuce leaf to go with it. My seven year old wolfed it down though, so it must have tasted good. Soup was quite yummy,...

The quality of service was far from excellent, it was as if the staff did not want to work this public holiday and it really showed. Not a very comfortable environment to be a customer in. Coffee, very watery Latte, you can only stretch milk so far and the barista pushed it beyond the 'done zone', Z service station coffee... More
