Lovely cafe in Te Awamutu

Thanks to the ratings in Trip Advisor we decided to go to Churchill's cafe on a Sunday afternoon.

Churchills was named for the fact that it was once a church (Salvation Army) and for the nearby hills. We make fairly regular visits to Churchills - always mean to eat out elsewhere, but Churchills is just so good we can't go past it! Staff are never too busy to give a friendly welcome, even when the cafe is packed... More

Visited on a public holiday at lunch time to a packed cafe. Staff went and got us some more seats which was very kind. Delicious tasty food. Quite hard to hear each other talk and had to walk for a little bit to park. Lots of people seemed to be enjoying themselves. It's a smart idea to book if you... More

We arrived at Churchills café and were welcomed by big smiles, the coffee was the best I have had in the Waikato you can tell they have been trained well. The food was delicious and the service was pretty spot on. We would definitely return when we are back in the Waikato.

The food was very good and coffee to good. Staff exceptionally helpful and pleasant. An attractive cafe set in an old chapel/church with outside space where you can sit and watch the passing traffic or slip around the side for a more private intimate occasion.

I love coffee and Churchills makes an awesome coffee! The food is good too especially love their french toast. The staff are friendly and helpful and its not unusual to get a warm and cheerful greeting from the kitchen ..

We went today...Asked for a table outside to be cleared, then had to wipe it down ourselves as no-one came to do it. Then waited over half an hour for our food. Needless to say we asked for a refund and left....
