Lovely cafe with amazing food and given it was a busy Waitangi Day it couldn’t be faulted. I’d go back there anytime I was out that way

Been several times now & always served up good quality food. Highly recommend the smoothies & iced chocolate for the non coffee lovers.

We stopped in there for lunch and it was extremely busy, a sure sign that the food is good. We were not disappointed! The open steak sanga was outstanding. The steak was melt in the mouth. The service was good too and very quick.
