Re-visit to this cafe on the Lower Kaimai's. Hugely disappointing experience. It is said to be "Under New Management". I was expecting some nice new changes to the place, new food options ? Instead got same old, same old, but with less wow and more...More

The cafe seems to be under new management and I must admit, that new management is making a huge difference. The friendly and welcoming atmosphere is very nice, but the food is what brings us back, time and time again. Well done!

For a cafe on a main road, the times that this place is open is disappointing. I have driven past with it closed more times than I have seen it open. I had the chicken salad and this is very good with lots of variety....More

On my last 2 visits here I was disappointed in the length of time it took to get a cup of coffee even when empty. However this visit was great. Lovely coffee, served quickly and the cabinet foods were lovely. Would definitely go again.

Don't be put off by the off road nature of this place. Or the way it looks closed but is open. It's basic but the food is very good and the staff are friendly. Enjoyed the hash stack which comes with heaps of mushrooms. If...More
