“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

A group of us went there for lunch. All had different dishes and there were no negative comments at all. I had the smoked chicken salad which was very tasty and had a good balance of chicken, salad, noodles, and dressing. Service was great, and for a largish group it was good to see all dishes arriving concurrently. Been there before and definitely go again. Appreciated the pleasant rural views.

“Looking for an alternative cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

The guys at Kaimai Cafe are lovely. They look after you so well. This is a regular stop for us and I even take passengers from the cruise ships up here for lunch. The food is always fresh but be warned the portions are huge.

“Relaxing lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We enjoyed our lunch here, although the Ploughman's Platter that my husband had was not very generous for the price. In contrast, my Croque Monsieur was delicious, generous and filling. An interesting venue for a relxed meal.
