This is a wee hidden jewel in Raetihi's fading crown... fortunately while the rest of the town appears in dire need of a pick-me-up, Angel Louise continues to please. It's a scenic hour's drive from Wanganui in one direction and to Taumarunui in the north probably about the same . As you are coming in from Wangas (south, heading north) turn left at the main junction, at the turnoff to Ohakune (on the right).
Look for the wind flag/banner that is up on the left hand side, about 1/2 way down the main thoroughfare...
I love the rustic feel, the time-worn outlook and the appeal of hot chocolate, latte or choice of beverage waiting for you when you need a break and a leg stretch. They do takeout if you really need to rush away but take my word for it, take your time, embrace the stillness and if it's a fine day - grab a local paper and enjoy the garden and tables out the back. The fare on the menu is appetising and there is enough of a choice to please everyone's palate. I have to say the cake, scones and muffins are just like Mum used to bake.
