“Great coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

A cafe doing simple food really well. Nothing pretentious but what is offered is quality. Great coffee too. Can get really busy over summer.

We spent 4 days in Raglan and ate at The Shack several times. They have impeccable customer service and the food and coffee is great. Very interesting and yummy smoothies too.

“Good atmoshphere, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

My 2nd visit to Raglan, on my first this place was so busy I couldn't even get a table. Managed to have a light lunch here on my 2nd visit and I can see why it gets so busy - really good food, and pleasant service from the waitresses. Lots of people coming and going,a great atmosphere

“Scrummy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Ate here a few times while I was in Raglan - I think it's the best place to eat here. The food was always delicious and healthy and atmosphere was good. Staff really friendly and helpful with a cheery attitude to life!

“Busy and VERY popular trendy cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

With The Shack fairly humming at 9am with clients for breakfast and coffee we had to give it a try.

The interior is rather different ranging from 1960 retro with Formica tables to a quiet lunging seating and different outdoor tables – it really is trendy.

It was the first day of a new and exciting menu with heaps of must try” items. The coffee is excellent, the savoury muffins light and very tasty and the breakfasts just great.

This is a Raglan “must stop” experience!
