Lovely family & dog friendly cafe

We stopped here on the way to a family camping trip during Auckland Anniversary weekend and found the food and the service exceptional, it would have been 5 star had the coffee been more to my taste. That however did not deter us from returning a second time on the way home for lunch, again... read more

From the minute we walked in I knew I was going to like this cafe. The staff were all super friendly and smiling. Extensive menu and good cabinet range available. The farmhouse breakfast is to die for, and the creamy mushrooms were a hit with hubby. Coffee is really good. A lovely relaxing environment to have brekkie on a beautiful... More

We do not live in Te Awamutu and travelled there for lunch with whānau. The food was really nice and the service was good. I liked that the young staff asked the chef questions to make sure they were giving us correct information. Coffee was pretty good with a wide selection of savoury and sweet cabinet food as well as... More

We can here after an early morning workout and had the place to ourselves which was great. Friendly staff, lovely ambience a choice of eating inside or out and beautiful looking food. We both had pancakes which were delicious although I would have preferred real maple syrup and the batter was a little tough. Always consistent service. Would bring visitors... More

I go to this cafe to eat aracini. But then I have had, burger, fish and chips, soup etc and some cabinet food. Always good, great service, limited parking though but it's a sign of good custom.

We had a family lunch here for my Mum's 94th birthday. We were able to sit outside which allowed us privacy and meant we didn't disturb others. Our waitress was friendly and efficient and meals were served promptly which was impressive given this was a busy Saturday. Delicious food and great coffee!
